Casa Encantada, Antigua

Not difficult to see why it was named Encantada, you may think to yourself as you look around this charming boutique hotel with its courtyard garden and pool, elegant lounge and splendid rooms. Perhaps its captivating setting in the midst of the 16th century Spanish colonial city of Antigua has something to do with it?

The real answer may have been lost over time, but today you’ll be delighted to find yourself in an elegant hotel, standing just a few minutes stroll from the Central Plaza; one of the most salubrious areas of this UNESCO-designated World Heritage City.

From the Encantada you can easily walk to artisan markets, the National Museum and any number of beautifully restored ruins, Baroque churches and convents. Or arrange excursions into the surrounding countryside.
