Hi, can anyone give some specific road travel tips as the reports of robberies and rape are a little worrying. I know I need to be sensible and stay alert, but some really specific tips would be great as the last time I travelled to guatemala was 16 years ago and I'm a bit rusty on the alert travelling.
Maybe you are expecting a response with useful tidbits like "keep your rented AK on your lap while on any buses". Things have gotten so much better for travelers and they were never that bad. There are a lot of reports, mostly older than a couple of years, of dangers to tourists. Here are some useful tips:. Do not get drunk and wander around that way anywhere in Guatemala. Do not wander around Guate City's Zone 1 at night. Know where you are going and go straight there. I don't recall seeing a travel advisory on the US when they were targetting foreign tourists here in Miami some years ago.
And even now if you watch the news every day you'll think that the USA should have some kind of travel advisory. I saw in national geographic the case of a serial killer in australia that was targetting backpakers until it finally got caught. Another one, the case of those young tourist that got killed by alligators in the outback. So you see, nothing like has ever happened in guatemala.
There is no such nothing as frequent rapes or serial rapist in guatemala like in the US. Prostitution is legal in guatemala and that's what makes the big diffrence.
Of course, there is street crime, specially amongst narco trafficers. Just like in the US. So I don't know what those guys in the state department are smoking. The problem is that some times they send guys that have a very low level of fluency of the local language and they end up missundertanding the local people's idiosincracies.
