What to do in Antigua, Guatemala

What to do in Antigua, Guatemala

[ 0 ] April 6, 2011

Planning a trip to Guatemala? Antigua is a popular stop-off point for travellers who love Colonial charm, 16th-century architecture and horse-drawn carriages.

It’s also one of the best – and cheapest – cities to learn Spanish in Central America and many find themselves staying for months.

Where to party

Nights out in Antigua consist of salsa dancing, afterhours bars and live music. Head to La Esquina to watch the locals spin themselves round on the dance floor. For a more ‘gringo’ vibe go to Mono Loco for super-cheap cocktails and disco classics.

What to do

Love adventure? Summit the dizzy heights of Pacaya – Antigua’s very own active volcano.  If shopping is more your thing then you’ll be spoilt for choice: the local market is packed full of  handpainted murals, pretty woven bags and stalls full of fresh fruit. You can also hire a bike and explore the city on wheels.
