To start planning your vacation to Posada del Angel
Posada del Angel has been moulded into a quiet oasis of tranquillity. There are seven guest rooms and suites oozing with character, each individually decorated to perfectly reflect Guatemalan style with antique artifacts and wood burning fireplaces. All of the suites surround a tranquil garden and lap pool laden with ferns and bougainvillea. The library and breakfast lounge are particularly inviting but all public areas tend to give a warm and cosy atmosphere.
Antigua is an inspirational array of craft shops, museums, jade jewelry boutiques, colonial architecture, and folk art galleries which give great insight into the intriguing Guatemalan culture. But if you're looking for something a little more active why not climb one of the local active volcanoes for a truly unforgettable experience.
All suites, are decorated with hand-woven Guatemalan fabrics, Each has its own personality characterized by an exquisite style in its unique decoration. Woven from 100% Egyptian cotton, our indulgently soft, 600-thread count linens are beautifully designed and expertly tailored to provide the ultimate night’s sleep; nothing but a heavenly rest awaits you.
Children are welcome to come and stay at Posada del Angel, and babysitting can be arranged upon request, but there are no specific facilities or interconnecting rooms.

When to go
Guatemala is known as, “The land of eternal spring”. Temperatures in the highlands are mild and vary little during the year. Average temperatures are highs of 77F and lows of 55F. May to October is the rainy season but this doesn’t affect all areas and more often means sunny mornings with showers beginning around 4pm. June is the month with the higher average pluvial precipitation peaks. July and August typically offer a week of dry weather known as the “Indian summer”, which can be an ideal time to travel. November to February is the dry-cold season when there is little to no rain but temperatures can be cool, especially in the early morning and evening. These months have the lower peaks of temperature in January, and low average ranges in pluvial precipitation. March to April is the dry-warm season when the weather is hot and dry. The higher temperature peaks are in April and also the lower precipitation averages.
The height of the foreign tourist season is from Christmas to Easter. Things become acute around Christmas, New Year’s and Easter, when Guatemalans take vacations too – we recommend booking many months in advance. Another high season runs June to August.
