Sunbathing at Antigua’s Parque Central

Rudy Giron: Instagrams &emdash; Sunbathing during the Rainy Season in Antigua Guatemala

As we can see, sunbathing is among the favorite things to do by visitors to Antigua Guatemala. Why do think that is?

    It’s really just white people thinking life could be better if you’re more tanned; while many “tanned” people probably believe their lives could be better if they were white. It’s nice to soak up the rays, but I wonder what local people feel about their dignified park, with its old-world elegance being used like a beach by visitors?

    I’ve spent many on hour on that same bench, reading and laying in the sun like a lizard. For me, it’s extremely important to have those sandal tan lines.
    When I return home and the magic warm fuzzy feeling of
    vacation in Antigua starts to fade, I just look at those tan lines and it brings me a little joy.
    The tan lines seem to last a little longer than the magic!
    It’s true that most women in Guatemala wouldn’t show that much skin. But doesn’t that just make it easier to profile the tourist?

    I don’t know, Rudy…if I spend more than 5 seconds on that bench, I have an army of Kaqchikel ladies asking me if I want to buy a necklace for my girlfriend, ja-ja-ja. Normally, I reserve my time on the benches for shoeshines, and save the sunbathing for the beach… :)
