This is a small park in the center of the city. It's pretty. . .shady. . .and has plenty of places to sit and watch the activity happening all around the square. It's surrounded by restaurants and shops.

Viewed at night. Breath taking. A lot of vendors present, enjoyed after a meal nearby. The walk on the square was an awesome way to relax.

It's really hard to get lost in Antigua. Simply, make your way to its Central Park -- and from there you'll get oriented and find your way back to your hotel or to your restaurant or church of choice. Truly, the architecture of the buildings surrounding the Park is wonderful. And, while there, find Cafe Condesa, which is my favorite restaurant in Antigua.

You can't miss the park in the heart of the city. Great views and people watching. Look closely at the fountain.

Make sure you spend a bit of time in the park just watching life go by. Great for reading, although be prepared for lots of street sellers who will approach you !
