About the neighbourhood
MORE LOCAL TOURIST ATTRACTIONS: Guatemala City is just 30 minutes from your vacation rental property. Mercado Central is a must!

Wandering through is an amazing experience. A short walk from Mercado Central and you will be in Central Park in front of the White House (tours also available). Central Park is the perfect place to relax and see the beautiful fountains and churches. Also in the City, you wi...
