Mesón Panza Verde

Mesón Panza Verde was established in 1986 as the first luxury boutique hotel and restaurant (European style) in Antigua. Ideally located at the quiet end of famous Fifth Avenue, it is a pleasant five minute walk from Antigua’s main Plaza and Cathedral down cobble stone streets past wonderful ruins and delightful shops. The hotel has a total of twelve rooms. Nine uniquely decorated suites and three double rooms. Just beyond the entrance, there is an inviting central garden and fountain surrounded by a veranda that is quintessential Antigua. Mesón Panza Verde has been selected as a Fodor´s Choice Establishment. The restaurant has received the coveted Medal de Oro (of Gold) award, which is the best in the country.
