A popular tourist destination located in the central highlands of Guatemala. Many first time visitors to Central America will use Antigua as a jumping off point, as it is very safe, full of tourists, and English is widely spoken. While local women aren’t particularly beautiful, there are a handful of sexy tourists!
IS ANTIGUA, GUATEMALA SAFE?
Antigua is safe. You shouldn’t have problems here.
DATING IN ANTIGUA, GUATEMALA
Easy. All you have to do to trap a tourist is seem interesting and exude liberalism. I try to avoid backpacker girls while in Latin America, but when in Rome…
With locals girls it’s slightly more difficult. Many come from Guatemala City and will have to head back the same night.
Online dating in Antigua, Guatemala: Latin American Cupid allows you to talk with local girls and set up dates before you arrive in the country. For this reason, I recommend it. Try it today!

RENT AN APARTMENT IN ANTIGUA, GUATEMALA
$400.00 should get you a private apartment in Antigua. You won’t be able to bring anyone back to your place if you do a homestay (very popular here) so I’d advise against it.
NIGHTLIFE IN ANTIGUA, GUATEMALA
Tourism has given rise to a moderately impressive bar scene in Antigua. There are plenty of bars around, but they change ownership/names with frequency, so ask around to see what’s hot at the moment. PLENTY of tourists here who love to party, so you’re in for a good time. And, if recent liberal arts graduates aren’t your cup of tea, there are a couple nightclubs in town that draw in girls from Guatemala City.
I recommend: Reillys. An Irish bar, but it’s mostly Guatemalans that go there. Go figure.
