In the center, you'll find the pretty fountain with the sirens. Wander around and read about the flowers and other plants. One plaque explains a group from California sent some flowers a long time ago to thank locals for helping start avocado production in California....More

Banks are here (I used BAC bank, it was really easy to change $50 to Quetzales, it took about 5 minutes for the whole transaction). There's a McDonalds here, there's a library, restaurants... you can feed pigeons by the fountains!

I love the Plaza Central. It is full of people, colors and smells. If you ever get lost, this is the place you want to hit that restart button. That is the best way to locate yourself better in Antigua

The plaza is a relaxing spot to sit and have a refreshing drink while sitting on bench watching the people. Beware of vendors.

This place is really cool and a good place to people watch or to mingle with the locals. One of the things that I liked was sitting and looking at the sunset on the buildings of Antigua.

Central Park is a hub for venders selling small typical handcrafts. If you stop for one you’re likely to get a dozen surrounding you. Remember that what they offer as Jade is not. The fountain is the focal point but the far end with The...More

Great place to go. Especially with kids. They chase the pidgeons while you get to drink your fresh brewed coffee on one of the many benches

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)
