Everything centers around Plaza Central Park. Nice place to sit on a bench and "People Watch". You can use the Park as a location to find other places.

Central square of Antigua. Has some nice buildings but there isn't much happening. Nice to sit down in the shade of the trees.

As old spanish colonial style cities, everything goes around central park, and Antigua is not the exception. Recentrly improved, nice place to watch people walking, and to be stalked by ambulant sellers. Beautiful landscapes and building views.

Great place to people watch. I saw 2 girls dressed up for quinceañeras, getting their pictures taken there. There was also a concert going on in front of the gov't building Friday afternoon.
