I took the Transmetro BRT (bus rapid transit) to get to the city center of Guatemala City. I could’ve taken a street taxi, but what’s the fun in that? The city center of Guatemala is where all the action takes place and it’s full of architecture, history, and culture. The Centro downtown part of Guatemala City is also known as Zona 1 or Zone 1.

The first thing I noticed when I stepped off the bus was that the one of the main streets were closed to cars. I saw bicyclists and the first thing that dawned on me was that I visited on a Sunday where Ciclovia happens in many cities.
There were a lot of street performers on the now pedestrian only street.

This is the famous Metropolitan Cultural Centre which is also known as the old National Post Office Building.
