Directions to San Miguel Escobar for Tours/Workshops from Antigua
BY TAXI OR TUK TUK: Cost is Q25-30 for a tuk tuk, or Q50 for a taxi. Tell the driver that you want to go to the plaza of San Miguel Escobar. (¿Me podría llevar a la plaza de San Miguel Escobar?)
BY BUS: Cost is Q3. At the Antigua bus terminal behind the market, or at the Santa Lucia church in the southwest corner of Antigua, ask for the buses to Ciudad Vieja. Tell the driver you want to get off at Esperanza. About ten minutes into the ride, you will see a long white wall on the left-hand side of the highway. Where that wall ends is a concrete bus shelter that says San Miguel Escobar. Get off the bus there and cross the road. Walk up the street and take your first right, then your second left. At the top of the hill you will see a yellow church, which is the plaza of San Miguel Escobar.
