He loves living in Antigua and sharing his insider tips for exploring the city with Remote Year travelers. His favorite Local Experiences are making pizzas with the hot caldera of an active volcano and visiting his hometown during our Lake Atitlan Side Trip. When in town, he recommends trying his favorite local dishes, tostadas with guacamole or pepian (chicken stew).
I wish I could keep traveling with them!
Antigua was an amazing experience! The side trips were unforgettable - like the day we spent with the Gonzalez family at their coffee farm - Josh created opportunities to connect across cultures and fall in love with his country. All the Remote Year staff worked hard to create community, make sure we had what we needed, and forge lifelong bonds in the group. I wish I could keep traveling with them!Katherine A.
