Dos Loros Inn provides the most spacious, airy, modern rooms in all of Antigua! After a three-year renovation program, we have re-opened with the modern plumbing, fixtures and amenities that so many of our guests want and so many Antigua hotels lack. We also specialize in making your visit as home-like and pleasant as possible. We can always have our driver meet you at the airport as you arrive, and save you the confusion and trouble of locating transportation at the airport. While here, please let us provide you with more than a room, but a true home away from home--getting you a cell phone for your time here, arranging your tours and travel, and making sure you know where the -real- native market is... not just the tourist market. We look forward to meeting you. Antigua itself is a destination to behold, with at least 35 monuments dating to the 17th century and the annual Holy Week spectacle, when thousands of local churchmen and women retrace Christs final days along cobblestone streets adorned with colorful carpets of flowers, fruit, pine needles and dyed sawdust. Nestled among three towering volcanoes, Antigua lies in a mountain valley 5,000 feet high. During its 18 th century heydey, Antigua, then called Santiago, was the biggest city between Mexico City and Lima until a devastating earthquake in 1773 prompted the government to move the capital to a nearby mountain valley and what became Guatemala City. Antiguas abandonment was incomplete, and by the early to mid-1800s, the population had begun to grow, in large part due to coffee farming in the fertile volcanic soils nearby. Thus the early renovators began piecing together the damaged homes, retaining their colonial architectural style. Tremendous efforts went into restoration of quake-ravaged churches, most notably the Cathedral of St. Joseph, which anchors the east side of the Antiguas central park.
