In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

There are many Evangelical Church's as well as Catholic Church's. Accepting differences?? Depends how you look at it, for my taste it crosses the line a bit. For example every Saturday you can expect people knocking on my door doing some preaching and fund raising.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Cuidad Vieja is the Coffin Capital of Guatemala!! Also this is where those old school buses are completely refurbished and really it's amazing how they turn a old bus into something really nice inside and out.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

Mainly here life revolves around work and family.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

If you are thinking about living in Antigua remember the prices there are ridiculously expensive in everything. Cuidad Vieja is very close to Antigua (10-15 min.) and everything here is very inexpensive. Example I have big 5 Br. house 3Br. Garage and a killer view of the volcanoes all for $187.00 per month, not even possible in Antigua. Cuidad Vieja is a very quite city and very low crime. A Great Place to retire to.
