Antigua Central Park (Parque Central) Tours

star-4.5
29 reviews
Antigua Central Park (Parque Central)
Antigua Central Park (Parque Central) is considered one of the most beautiful parks in Guatemala. It’s the main outdoor area in town and where people go to sit, stroll, or meet up for an afternoon of relaxation and nice weather. From Central Park you have a superb view of the Agua Volcano, which towers over Antigua.

The Basics
The park is surrounded by a cathedral and arch-adorned colonial buildings, including the Palace of the Captain General (Palacio de los Capitanes Generales), City Hall, the Archbishop’s Palace, and the Portal of Commerce. By day, handicraft vendors line the tree-covered walkways, selling their wares. By night, marimba bands set up shop, entertaining passersby with their live music. Be sure to check out the Fountain of the Sirens, a 1936 reconstruction of the original that was built in 1738.

Visit the park independently or as part of a Colonial Antigua sightseeing tour from Guatemala City.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Central Park is the perfect spot to sit or stroll and observe the day-to-day goings-on in Antigua.
  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces.
  • Take normal precautions to avoid pickpockets and petty crime, especially at night.

How to Get There

Central Park is located in the center of Antigua, between Calles 4a and 5a. If you’re staying in town, it’s an easy walk to the park. Antigua is 25 miles (40 kilometers) southwest of Guatemala City, a 75- to 90-minute drive.

When to Get There

The park is open year round and is almost always crowded, especially on Sundays when streets on both the east and west sides are closed to vehicular traffic.

Fountain of the Sirens
In the center of Central Park, a fountain depicts buxom mermaids spraying streams of water. The Fountain of the Sirens (Fuente de las Sirenas) was originally built by Diego de Porres in 1738 and inspired by the Neptune Fountain in Italy. Although a replica, the 1936 reconstruction maintains the original’s posterity. When visiting Central Park, walk around the fountain to see it up close.
Address: Between 4a Calle and 5a Calle, Antigua, Guatemala

Antigua Walking Tour

star-5
This tour, by Due South Travels, is a 2+ hour guided walking tour of Antigua, one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. Our local guide will give you tons of great information, including the history of the city and its architecture, the geography, culture, and religion of historical and modern day Guatemala. During the tour we will visit and discuss Antigua's significant landmarks. We will talk about the volcanoes and earthquakes Guatemala has experienced, the Mayan ethnic groups, the Spanish invasion, and modern day life here.We are different from the four hour walking tours offered in town because we don't take you shopping (too much pressure!), however, our local guides would love to bring you AFTER the tour if you'd like a thorough explanation of jade or if you're interested in bargaining for some beautiful handicrafts. You'll also receive plenty of other suggestions for things to do in and around town.
