Sit in the the Plaza for a while and watch locals and tourists. The vendors are extremely colorful and delightful. Take in all the history surrounding you while you enjoy this shaded area.

Pretty place to have rest and watch the sights around you. Plenty of trees for shade, and a lovely water fountain in the centre. I found the number of people trying to sell you things continually spoil the atmosphere a little; although I also understand...More

You'll find that most places in Central America will take U.S. currency but you will most likely get a better conversion rate if you have the countries local currency ( Guatemala Quetzal)
