1,300 Acre Golf Resort Opens Near Antigua

La Reunión Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala’s first golf resort, opened last month. Built on what used to be a coffee plantation outside the colonial town of Antigua (a Unesco World Heritage site), the property is lodged between four volcanoes, at 3,700 feet above sea level, with the Pacific Ocean about 30 minutes away. It spans 1,384 acres and includes 26 golf course casitas (each with a small pool, outdoor whirlpool and terrace). A luxury hotel, boutique eco-hotel, spa, observatory and cultural center are planned to open within the next two years.
