This is a project that began around a year and a half ago and has been thanks to the help of Guatemalan filmmakers and authorities that have been able to establish connections with Hollywood productions so that they choose the colonial city as their destination.
The project represents an important source of income for local entrepreneurs such as owners of hotels, restaurants, farms and tourist sites and an opportunity to make Antigua Guatemala known worldwide.
