Antigua is truly a city of color. Its hodgepodge of multi-colored colonial buildings and churches contrast pleasantly against a green backdrop of forested hills and epic volcanos. Antigua’s parks and plazas are lined with the vivid purple flowers of its many Jacaranda trees, while many locals sport the rainbow-pattern garb of their Mayan ancestors.
