The ‘central park’ found in most Central American towns is a great place to hang out and people watch while chowing down on some delicious and cheap street food. Use common sense and buy from popular stalls where the food looks fresh. Recommended dishes; pepian (traditional meat stew), pupusas (a sort of quesadilla), rellenitos (a stuffed plantain) and bunuelos (sweet fried donuts).

This is a true Central Park as it's the center of activity in Antigua. It's especially buzzing on weekends - tourists meandering, sweethearts strolling, families congregating; There are folks peddling ice cream, photos, balloons, trinkets, Mayan goods. We've often seen free concerts staged at the park, normally set up on the church steps.

Central Park is 4 blocks from our location! This is the main central spot for Antigua, with nice colonial buildings and the main Cathedral. There are coffee shops, restaurants, and shops!

In front of the Cathedral de Santiago, and right in the middle of Antigua. This plaza is a beautiful example of Spanish colonial architecture, and is a wonderful place to sit down and enjoy the sound of the fountain while reading a book

Nothing not to like about this central square at the heart of the town of Antigua. Lovely architecture and an ever-evolving street scene.

The Main Square is the center of our City. It is a lovely park that surrounded by our landmark colonial architecture: the Cathedral and Archbishop's Palace ruins, the Royal Palace, etc., and where you will see how the local population (including our Mayans) mingle and enjoy it.

Beautiful in the day or night, Parque Central marks the public square of Antigua. Come here and enjoy an ice cream while sitting on a bench during the day or soak in the atmosphere in the evening after dinner.
