Fodor's Review

The Mopan Maya village of San Antonio, 35 miles (56 km) west of Punta Gorda, is Toledo's second-largest town, with a population of more than 2,200. It was settled by people from the Guatemalan village of San Luis, who revere their former patron saint. The impressive village church, built of stones carted from surrounding Mayan ruins, has a stained-glass window donated by another city with a connection to the saint: St. Louis, Missouri. The people of San Antonio haven't forgotten their ancient heritage: each June 13, they take to the streets for a festival that dates back to pre-Columbian times. The new road to the Guatemala border passes through San Antonio Village, making access much faster and easier.
