Fortunately, La Antigua Guatemala is still mostly a pedestrian town, but it gets its share of vehicular traffic and before it gets completely out of control, the new municipal administration is taking steps to put some order in the streets.
On the same topic of vehicles and traffic, pretty soon, perhaps in February, the Municipality of La Antigua Guatemala will begin charging an entrance fee or parking fee to all non-residents of La Antigua Guatemala. Also, no huge trucks will be allowed within or pass through the colonial town. The City Council says some of this money will be used to maintain the streets clean and in perfect shape. Let’s hope they follow up on their word. ;-)
