Generally I'd recommend asking on the Thorntree forum -- a fair number of Antigua resident posters. But Thorntree is down right now. You could try asking here: expatexchange.com/guatemala/liveinguatemala.…

You can get an apartment in Antigua for about $300 month, 1 bedroom, with internet and wifi. Of course it varies by size and the nicer ones are twice as much. Food/groceries, if you eat like a local, at the market and local type places, its about $10 day max, eat like a expat and enjoy nightlife and cafes for westerners, 10 times more. Transport is cheap, but to where? Busses are the way to get around. If you have not been there, go and get a nice room for a week in a hotel for $20 night, then look at the all the ads for apartments and ask around...

Agree, LP Thorntree is the place to get better info
