Where do I begin? This central plaza has all of the requisite buildings that one expects of a central plaza, PLUS. There is a cathedral which was torn down, except for the facade and bell tower and replace by a newer more modern one. I personally would have preferred the old one. There is a municipal "palace" with a beautiful garden atrium. There is a museum with one floor of archaeological effects. There is a 1900's building which reminded me of a train station in Paris because of the arched glass roof and the wrought iron. There are Greek columns, Egyptian columns, a gazebo and a fountain. There is plenty of seating for people watching while drinking a nice cup of Guatemalan coffee from "& cafe" or eating an ice cream from "Pops". What more could one ask of a central plaza. There is also a schedule of entertainment from marimba bands to other local bands.
For the more mundane needs of life, there are ATMs located here as are many restaurants serving everything from typical foods to Tex-Mex and everything in between.
