Where to stay in Antigua

The grid-like but picturesque central streets of Antigua abound with accommodations catering to all manner of travelers, with a selection of budget, mid-range, and high-end boutiques. Most cluster around the city's central landmark, Parque Central (Plaza Mayor). If you stay in this area, you'll be close to all the best attractions in Antigua, as well as the city's most visited eateries, bars, and cafes. If you want to stay in a slightly less crowded area, look just north of the city center to the streets around Iglesia La Merced.
