The most popular trek from Antigua is Volcan de Fuego. Actually, you will be climbing the volcano right next to it, Acatenango. The trip takes two days. You spend the night on the top of Acatenango, if you are lucky, you can watch Volcan de Fuego crashing lava during the night. This is truly a once in a lifetime experience!

When I hear “Spain,” I think “Tapas” and “Cava” and “Vermut” 😉 Barcelona is a pretty touristy city, that’s why it’s always nice to have a few local addresses, to taste the authentic, Catalan cuisine. It’s fatty, oily, fried and delicious. Here are some great spots to have Tapas in Barcelona.
