Where our Tours & Workshops Start
DIRECTIONS TO san miguel escobar Plaza
BY TAXI, TUK TUK OR UBER: From Antigua the cost is Q40 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? or Me voy a la plaza de San Miguel Escobar.) An UBER costs Q20-25.
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 or helper "ayudante" 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 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.
