Tasting Guatemala's famous coffee from Antigua's Filadelfia Coffee Resort & Tours was an experience for a non-coffee drinker! We stopped by the weavers in San Antonio Aguas Calientes to check out some authentic Guatemalan textiles. Join this episode of my Guatemala trip with Vivid Roots & Hopscotch the Globe, as we get on the road to Chiquimula where we are volunteering.

I am not a coffee drinker, but of course if I am in Guatemala and doing a tour of a coffee farm in Antigua, then I need to try some coffee! This tour was super informative and entertaining. Our guide at Filadelfia Coffee Resort & Tours was funny and tried his best to help us understand the process of making Guatemala's famous coffee. Did you know that their largest export is to Japan? That's right, the Japanese love Guatemalan coffee. After hanging out at Filadelfia Coffee Resort & Tours for a bit, we then got on the road to Chiquimula where the group I was traveling with (Vivid Roots & Hopscotch the Globe) would be volunteering for the next few days.
On the way to Chiquimula, we stopped by San Antonio Aguas Calientes, which is a town in Guatemala famously responsible for creating most of the textiles and artisanal products. We went to the Mercado de Artesanias to see how the weavers create clothes, table clothes, hair tires, and more all by hand.
We then continued on our trek to Chiquimula, Guatemala! We finally arrived to our hotel, which was part of a horse ranch called Los Laureles (La Caballeriza). This hotel is beautiful by the way! If you want a relaxing retreat in Guatemala then hotel La Caballeriza is the place to go.
