Top Guatemala


Up in the hills on the way to Guatemala City, Cuilapa has a refreshingly cooler climate compared to the lowlands below. The capital of Santa Rosa department is a small, non-descript town with one distinctive claim to fame - this is the absolute center of the three Americas and at the end of a dusty carpark, there is a crumbling map to prove it. You can find the monument next to the central market at the top of 1a Avenue.

A couple of hotels in town are good for a night. Hotel Shekina, two blocks down the street behind the market, has clean rooms with private bathroom, cable TV and a pool for $10 (one person) or $15.50 (two people) or Posada K-Llily, three blocks uphill of the park, just off 2a Avenue, has similar rooms (without pool) for $9.50 (one person) or $12.50 (two people). A tuk tuk around town costs $0.30.

Near the central market or on 2a Avenue, there are clusters of food stalls, fast food vendors and comedores. 1a Avenue and 2a Avenue are the main streets in town and run either side of the central park. Both have a couple of banks with ATM’s and Internet cafés (open from 8 a.m. till 8 p.m.).
