Colourful houses, ruins, police and a lot of Cafés – La Antigua

La Antigua

After another long drive we reach Antigua. We like the city with its cobblestone, cafes and colourful houses and ruins. Unfortunately there is no campground but we can park at the tourist police. It’s not really nice but it’s free and they offer restrooms and showers (super cold though) Also it is very close to town. In less than 5 minutes we can reach the center afoot.

Standing on Pick Ups while driving is usual here, as well as the loaded trucks.

Poor street dogs everywhere.
