Not only did we decide to pamper ourselves a bit with a plane ride across Guatemala rather than an overnight bus trip, but weÂ´ve also departed from the budget, backpacking adventure theme here in Antigua, where weÂ´re spending a week at the RadissonÂ´s Villa Antigua resort.Â Have we gone totally soft? Actually it was a gift, and hey, this is our honeymoon after all, remember?
Funny thing is that as soon as we got south of Tulum in Mexico, we were remarking the whole time that we seem to have lost all of the other American travelers. All the other solo travellers seemed to be European or Canadian. But weÂ´ve found them all again here. This place seems to be dominated by our countrymen and women.

The Villa Antigua has itÂ´s own compound set up on the southwest corner of the old city, about a block from the cobbled old streets of Antigua. I wont get into the myriad luxuries weÂ´re spoiling ourselves with here. After all, I want to keep some street cred in the budget scene, but rest assured itÂ´s one hell of a honeymoon.
