Antiqua on your own

Recommended Posts

Will be taking the Princess Antiqua on your own transfer in February. I've read several posts about hiring a guide at the drop-off point for something like $10 per person. Do experienced cruisers suggest we do this or just go it on our own? And if you suggest hiring a guide, any advice on to go about that? Thanks in advance!

Thank you for the information Daryleann. I am still interested in information on hiring a guide at the tourist center where the bus drops us off "on the fly". This would leave our option of doing it on our own or with a guide open. And if we chose to hire a local guide there how that process happens.

Look at the forum on Guatemala and do a search for Antigua. You will see what others have done.

 

In some of my reading I remember a guide saying that the tourist area is only a few blocks each direction. Not sure where I read it and will try to track it back down.

Antigua is very walkable and easy to get around. It's also safe and friendly. I recommend just getting dropped off in the center square and branching out from there.

Download the Antigua offline map from google maps prior to your departure. Works with no internet connection and will help you find your way around.  In Central Park there always seemed to be people offering walking tours if you decide to. Not sure how much?  Do your research on Trip Advisor before you go to know what you want to see/do in order to maximize your time.

This is a good tip.  But you resurrected a thread that has been inactive for four years! 🙃
