  Parque Central, Antigua
by bellatrix

The gathering place for locals and visitors alike, on most days the plaza is lined with villagers selling handicrafts to tourists; on Sunday it?s mobbed and the streets on the east and west sides are closed to traffic. Things are cheapest late Sunday afternoon, when the peddling is winding down. The plaza?s famous fountain was built in 1738. At night, mariachi or marimba bands play in the park.

Directions: In the center of town, you can't miss it!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
