Things to do - general

Guatemala’s Capital is the largest city in Central America. Fast paced and vibrant, Guatemala City or Guate as it’s referred to locally is a interesting blend of old and new and possesses a distinct Latin charm. Today, Guatemala City has more than two million inhabitants. Its location, facilities and the only International Airport La Aurora (GUA) make it the starting point for visits to the rest of Guatemala.

Guatemala City was founded in 1776, after a devastating earthquake destroyed the former Spanish capital of Central America, “La Cuidad de Santiago de los Caballeros de Guatemala”, known today as Antigua Guatemala (or simply Antigua). Sitting on top of three tectonic plates, Guatemala City is spread out in a valley with the Agua volcano reigning on its horizon.

Guatemala City has an active cultural life throughout the year. Most of the country’s Museums are to be found here. There are also more than 30 galleries showing Guatemalan artists in painting, photography, engraving and sculpture. Theaters present a wide range of plays, especially national playwrights.

Visitors interested in handicraft will find them in the Central Market, located a block away from the Cathedral. At the Central Market you will not only find unique Guatemalan handicrafts, but also see the colorful variety of local flowers, fruits and vegetables. The Relief Map in Minerva Park is a good place to see the extension of Guatemala and if you have never been to Paris you should visit “Torre El Reformador”, the world’s only scale replica of the Eiffel Tower.
