Antigua, Guatemala in Pictures (Day Two)

Day two in Guatemala was a day to explore Antigua.  We enjoyed zip lining, an authentic meal, sight seeing, and shopping!  You can read Jackson's blog about our day HERE.


On the bus bright and early getting ready to go to Antigua!


We went to Filadelfia Coffee Plantation - They have tours, a restaurant, zip lining, horse back riding, and a gift shop!

Our ride up the mountain to the zip line


The coffee plantation.  I had no idea they needed shade so trees are grown in the field to help protect the coffee plants


The roads up the mountain were a little rough and scary!

Our group!


I was so nervous for Jackson to go!!

You can't even see the end!  You go over a canyon!



Jackson was the first one to go down!  A bird ran into him!


There he goes!!

The view

Coffee beans - they are ready to pick when they are red

Most of us didn't make it all the way across and had to be saved!

Second line!!  He LOVES it!!
