The Black Cat Antigua

by eburgio

Hi.
Can anyone tell me what the best transportation would be to Central Square/Black Cat Antigua from La Aurora airport?

Re: The Black Cat Antigua

by Chenbaaxal

You could almost trip over guys just outside the airport offering shuttle rides to Antigua for $10. Be sure to tell the driver where you want off. Another more comfortable approach would be to share a $25-30 cab with others.

Take a shuttle,
I think it might be the best option if there are manny drivers at the airport,plus it is the most comfortable one.It is also very easy to get although I suggest to ask manny of the drivers for their prices before you actually take one...Don't let them rip you off!

Travel Tips for Antigua Guatemala

After the earthquake of June...

by la_beba

After the earthquake of June 1773 and February 1976, life continued with colonial environment in Antigua Guatemala. It being imposed by nature and by law, almost the same as decreeing exile to a dying city...... and now beautiful to admire all those ruins that talk of the past! This here are Las Ruinas de Capuchinas.....

The layout of this cathedral...

by la_beba

The layout of this cathedral was typical of the Spanish cathedral of the period, grand in its architecture and decorated with great artistic treasures by contemporary sculptors, painters, and silversmiths. Elevated to the rank of 'metropolitan' in 1743, its was probably the largest and most luxurious in Central America.
Among the ruins, we may still appreciate the elaborate decorations sculptured on the dome, columns and pillars, cornices and vaults. For almost 100 years, it’s survived three major earthquakes, but the earthquakes of 1773 destroyed it completely. Two of the chapels at the entrance remained almost intact; they were restored at the beginning of the XIX century and today are called the parish church of San Jose. This is a picture of the backside of the Cathedral.

Public Laundry

by Hopkid

Just across the street (2a Avenida Sur) from the Iglesia de Santa Clara on the east end of the plaza are a series of sinks used to do laundry. The Tanque de la Union was constructed in 1853 in a neo-classical style. Local women can still be seen in the early morning or late afternoon using the water from the fountain/concrete pond to do their laundry. It's a very interesting and unique experience. It is not uncommon to see similar facilities in the plazas of small towns surrounding Antigua.

Comfy.... comfortable.... yeah: think COMFORT!

by la_beba

Jeans, t-shirts, loose linen pants, maybe a hoodie for cooler nights/afternoons; or buy yourself some folk/local wear... "tipica" skirts and short sleeve blouses.
Also, all the roads in the city proper retain the original cobble design, so wear comfortable, flat walking shoes. Heels or platform shoes are not practical as you could easily twist an ankle.

Iglesia El Calvario

by thelukey

One of my favorite sights in Antigua Guatemala, the mustard and white Iglesia El Calvario, seems to be ignored by most visitors. This is likely due to the church's location well south of the city center. The interior of the long, narrow, and relatively unadorned Iglesia El Calvario contains a series of paintings of the stations of the cross. Inside the church grounds, there is a single specimen of a certain type of tree (unfortunately, I can't remember its name), said to have been planted by Saint Pedro de San Jose Betancourt. The brown and white flowers of this tree, which are said to have various medicinal purposes, are collected by locals who then use them to prepare traditional home remedies for a wide variety of ailments.

To get there, walk south of the park for two blocks, turn left onto 7ma Calle, then turn right onto Calle de los Pasos and follow the road past the Iglesia de San Francisco, past the Escuela de Cristo, and across the Rio Pensativo until you reach the entrance.
