#28 Antigua, Guatemala

Easily one of the most charming towns in all of Central America, Antigua is the sort of place that wastes no time conquering the hearts of those who set foot in it. From the colourful colonial architecture to the gorgeous churches and the cobbled streets, this UNESCO-listed destination is well worth a prolonged visit.

While I wouldn’t call Cerro de la Cruz a hidden gem because hidden it is not, I have no doubt it provides one of the best (if not the best) view of the town and the towering volcano behind it. The volcano is usually enshrouded in cloud for most of the day but visiting in the early morning tends to guarantee a clear view.
