This photograph was taken at one of the newest gated residential developments within the San Pedro Las Huertas, one of the villages of La Antigua Guatemala.
Slowly but surely, fincas cafetaleras, coffee plantations, are becoming gated residential communities. Well, maybe not so slow. In ten years I have seen many new gated residential communities pop up within coffee plantations and other kinds of land lots. Sometimes it feels like around Antigua Guatemala there was never a real estate crisis. For sure, the real estate prices are still high around Antigua Guatemala.
Or perhaps I am wrong, often I am, does anybody know what’s the real estate situation around Antigua Guatemala?
