Antigua Prices & Travel Costs

Last Updated: Jan 2024

Antigua is a charming little colonial town that can make you forget the chaos and filth of Guatemala City itself, but once you arrive you quickly notice that this is a tourist town and prices tend to reflect that. Hotels and hostels can be found for low rates, but those seeking luxury have many options at the high end as well.
