Flowers of San Juan

Set in the foothills above Antigua and boasting a nunnery of some fame, San Juan also hosts a number of fantastic artisanal shops and some beautiful flowers.

You can find the pods from these on sale at the market here in Antigua - more photos available upon request for identification purposes.

Grenadia flowers, relatives of the passionfruit.

They call these the camerones flores, or shrimp flowers.
