This is where all the locals and tourists meet. It is located in the center of the old city around all the little shops.

A very pleasant Square to sit in and pass the time. A great place to watch families. It does have an abundance of local vendors flying their wares. Free WiFi in spots.

Located in the central of the square, this little park is really so pleasant, especially with a constant light breeze. The fountain is loved by little kids. Do expect Mayan vendors selling you local handicraft, textiles and musical instruments.

Beautiful Spanish style City main square in Antigua. The fountain in the middle tells the story from earlier days about the wet-nurses several hundred years ago. Excellent photo opportunities!

The Central Park is surrounded on 2 sides by shops public buildings and a church. Any day or evening there are venders and other local life to enjoy. the Arch is down one street and many other places to visit located close by.

This park is beautiful, but not a place you can quietly go read a book if you’re a tourist. The vendors are kind, but relentless. If you’re not buying, be prepared to kindly say “No Gracias” every 2-3 minutes.

You'll find that most places in Central America will take U.S. currency but you will most likely get a better conversion rate if you have the countries local currency ( Guatemala Quetzal)
