Antigua is a city situated in the south-central area of Guatemala. It is also commonly referred to as La Antigua. It is a famous city in Guatemala for its Spanish Baroque style, medieval architectures, and the ruins of many colonial churches. It was once the capital of the kingdom of Guatemala. Antigua literally means "ancient" in Spanish, and there is a reason why is it named so. It was founded on 10 March 1543 by Spanish conquistadors and was the third capital of the kingdom of Guatemala. The city is not just landlocked but in fact, surrounded by three huge volcanoes and other small mountains, hills, and plains. Unlike the capital city of the country, Guatemala City, Antigua is considered to be more tourist-friendly and is much safer in terms of tourists- safety. With a population of just about 45 thousand, it is very small as compared to other cities in central and Southern America.

Stay Safe

Due to the presence of the "Tourist Police", Antigua is much safer than any other city in Guatemala: you're very unlikely to be mugged or robbed here, at least during the daytime. (At night, things get a bit more questionable.) However, the flip side of that is once you leave the city center, you're mostly on your own, so it's inadvisable under those circumstances to engage in risky behavior such as displaying valuables conspicuously. If you plan to visit sites outside the center of town like the volcanoes, make sure you go with an officer of the tourist police who accompany tourists there at least once a day.

Armed robbery is depressingly common. If this happens to you, rule number one is don't try to resist, as criminals will not hesitate to use their weapons on uncooperative victims.
