NOTE: My preferred method of communication is through notes on the cache page in question. However, should you wish to use email - please do not select "reply". In general, a replay to the mail bot will not reach me. Instead, please go to your cache page and e-mail GeoCrater from the log there or email me directly at, referencing the cache URL, or waypoint number.

Additional translation added as I support a number of countries:

Lamento archivar este caché, ya que no ha habido ninguna comunicación del propietario en el tiempo transcurrido (un mes o más) desde que se publicó la nota del revisor. Si deseas reactivar el caché durante los próximos dos meses, por favor, ponte en contacto con GeoCrater para ver si esto es posible. Si el caché cumple con las directrices en vigor, se estudiará dicha petición teniendo en cuenta las circunstancias que llevaron el archivo original.

Geocache Description:

Antigua Guatemala

The Antigua Guatemala is the city of a great historical value in Guatemala.

In this cache you will walk in to the park, coffe shops, and comercial stores to a hill (Cerro de la Cruz) with a nice view of the city. You will need to go out to the road and walk up to the hill in no trail. Take a nice pair of hiking shoes but the walk will not be so long, so do not worry and enjoy. Look only on day, there are police until 6:00 of the afternoon. This one revives the cache from Lahontan "Bienvenidos al antigua"
Stage 1
You will find a plaque look for two dates denoting an anniversary. To calculate waypoint 2 determine how many years the plaque is commemorating (XXX). Also determine what day in March the plaque was dedicated (YY).
Stage 2 from S1: Northward ((XXX+YY+109)/1000) Minutes
Eastward ((XXX-YY*11-2)/1000) Minutes

Stage 2
At waypoint two you will find another plaque. Use the number of men named on the plaque (Z) to compute the location of the final.
Final from S2: Northward ((YY*3+Z)/1000) Minutes
Westward ((YY*5-Z)/1000) Minutes
