Welcome to Tropicana

La Antigua Guatemala is a happening destination, and the cultural hub of Central America. With a population of around 30,000 and visitors from all over the world you’ll meet people from all walks of life. The mix of the easy going lifestyle, the great climate and the buzzing nightlife make it easy to see why so many people just …. stay

Tropicana is Guatemala’s ultimate experience in budget backpacker hostel accommodation. Centrally located in the heart of Antigua, Tropicana is amongst some of Guatemala’s finest bars and restaurants and offers a range of accommodation options.

Antigua Guatemala has a vibrant backpacking scene with lots to see and do in and around the town. For the outdoor type, there are hikes, mountain biking, zip-lining, horse riding and much more. For the culture enthusiasts there are countless colonial ruins, museums and art galleries to visit, there are hundreds of restaurants for the foodies and enough bars to keep the party enthusiasts going 7 nights a week.

Tropicana was born out of traveling and is owner-run, so the pride and passion we have helps us to create the type of environment we enjoy when being away from home.

Book directly here in advance and be the envy of all those who can’t get a bed with us. Tropicana is the only hostel in Antigua with a swimming pool and hot tub. So either relax with a beer by the pool or head to the back garden and get comfy in the hot-tub when the sun goes down.

We offer various different activities & tours to do in Antigua and the surrounding areas.  We have our own Acatenango Trek so don’t miss out, this will be one of the highlights of your trip.

We are happy to help you plan your trip by booking different transport within Guatemala, Central America and Mexico.

We offer breakfast, lunch and dinner. We have a variety of foccacia breads, salads, smoothies, etc. You can enjoy a really nice meal in our bar or on the terrace whilst taking in the views.
