Have you been to both Granada and Antigua?

Jump to last reply

If so, can you please tell me how they compare as far as being touristy and/or gringoized? As some of you know I am looking for a Spanish school for a week. In some ways Antigua would definitely fit the bill, but I have to weigh that against how much the town is devoted to tourism, English-speakers and ex-pats.

We were in Nicaragua earlier this month (maybe next week I'll get a trip report together) and did find Granada a bit touristy and overrun with English speakers in some places. That's why I am wonering about Antigua and would like to know how they compare. In Nicaragua we spent a day in Leon and did like it, so I am wondering if Xela is comparable. So, if you've been to both of these cities too, I'd appreciate a comparison. Thanks in advance.
