Food/Restaurant prices in Guatemala

We are a group of 8 ladies planning on visiting Antigua this coming March. We are planning to rent a house in Antigua and have breakfast and dinner at home, but wonder about the price of restaurants at lunch time. We are also planning to visit Chichi and La Atitlan, as well as the small towns close to Antigua.

Any ideas?

Prices are much less than in the states -- wide range of restaurant prices -- You may consider bringing a few staples from home if you are cooking -- spices, pasta, -- make sure you visit the local market, located near bus station (not the handicraft market) for vegetables/flowers. This is a wonderful small town and beautiful country.

If you're adventurous at all, leave the spices at home and pick up fresh spices from the market - incredible aromatic. Pasta is widely available, too - so many expats live in Antigua that the markets are well stocked. My favorite locals restaurants are about $2.50 for a good, full lunch; the places that cater to tourists range into nice-restaurant-in-the US prices.

Sounds like a wonderful time!! Check out my 2012 blog for some great Antigua ideas - local bus to Jocotenango's museums, fat tire bike tours, the luncheonette hidden behind the counter of a tiny store, and a wonderful chocolate making class. The blog is linked on the main page of the 2012 photo collection below. Happy trails!
