Half Day Experience in Antigua Guatemala - Collective tour

11 reviews
No trip to Guatemala is complete without visiting Antigua, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed city widely considered Guatemala’s crown jewel. This half-day sightseeing tour from Guatemala City makes it possible to visit on even the shortest of time frames—squeeze it into a long layover or make the most of a quick trip without skimping on any of the sights.

Huge market that actually can feel intimidating if you end up in the wrong part! Food stalls, arts and crafts, garden decorations and household goods are all on different floors and if you're a foreigner and you end up in a section only the locals go in you WILL be stared at haha! It's all good though, everyone is super helpful if a little pushy on occasion. I was told I could bargain there but I didn't feel comfortable doing that as everything is pretty inexpensive anyway.

Mercado Central or Central Market is a large 3 level indoor market selling goods. It is more like a flea market and you can shop for souvenirs here. It is located behind the Cathedral of Guatemala not far from the Central Park / Plaza.

A good place to eat a meal or shop for souvenirs. Prices seemed reasonable for both. Well worth a wander around to snap pics.

Massive size with multiple levels! While I did not buy anything (don’t need more stuff at my age); however, I loved the vibrant action & local beauty. I saw virtually exclusively locals—which is the point: a real market. Delighted to visit this landmark! El baño is interesting (sense of humor noted)

I've seen many a market in my life and have also spent quite some time in Guatemala now, but have found this market to be the most complete in the traditional Guatemalan snacks that can be found throughout the country. The food court is fantastic with its food court, as well as the area with all types of delicacies and the typical sweets section. 5 stars for the food!
