  • Central plaza is quite lovely and great place to meet after exploring the city on foot. It's safe to roam and soak up the culture in Antiqua. So beautiful and great vibe.

  • Nice place to relax and have coffee. One of the best hand-crafted ice creams from street vendors - from what looks like a miniature "chicken bus." Great experience watching people get their hair braided by the indigenous women. Beautiful artisan items can also be purchased. And the cathedral is right in front. Surrounded by excellent coffee shops and restaurants.
  • A beautiful plaza. I really can't describe it well enough with my short visit. But many old and historical buildings. Many shops and also places to just sit and take it all in. Everyone drives slow so it is a very walkable town
