Typical Post Card from Parque Central, Antigua Guatemala

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Typical Post Card from Parque Central, Antigua Guatemala

Having one shoes shone is among the most popular things to do in the parque central of Antigua Guatemala. Eating ice cream, talking to other people, meeting tour guides, reading, hanging out with friends, are other things that come to mind. What else am I missing?

    …..so the muni is bothering the women who sell artesanias in the parque and the streets, but they don’t bother the shoe shiners, ice cream vendors and fruit vendors ???? Where’s the logic and the justice in that ???

      What do you mean by the “muni bothering”? Could it be because the shoe shiners and ice cream and fruit vendors pay for a permit to be there and the artisan vendors do not?

        ….the people who have a cart selling fruits and vegetables will probably have a permit, but I really doubt the shoe shiners or the people with a little basket standing on the street corners or walking around selling food have permits…. they should treat everyone equally. And I’m sure if they would sell permits to the women in the parque and they knew that they wouldn’t be harrassed anymore afterwards, they would buy one…

          I agree that people should be treated equally. However, you are merely assuming that they are not. You do not have all of the data required to come to your conclusion. I suggest you follow up to see what the local laws/regulations are regarding the permitting process to sell goods and services on the streets of Antigua and the Central Park. Then you might want to ask the vendors if they have the required permits. You might be surprised by what you find.
