Antigua, Guatemala – Camping in Antigua

Just arrived it’s time to say goodbye to Tessa. In Antigua we re-meet Petra and Klaus who left a day earlier on the parking lot on the opposite side of the bus station. Despite the city’s proximity we are well away from the street and in the middle of green spaces. The guarded and fenced lot costs 50 GTQ each per night and day, this makes 100 GTQ for 24 hours. Contrary to reports of other travellers we found even Parque Ecológico Florencia 10 km outside of Antigua open where camping for 30 GTQ pp is possible. The car park at the tourist police on the other hand isn’t available to camping any more. The guided walks to the hilltop Cerro de la Cruz and to the cemetery accompanied by the police also don’t take part any more, but these routes are regarded as safe. Those who really don’t want to go alone can hire a guide at the tourist information at Parque Central.
