    Safety of travelling in Guatemala

    I traveled to Guatemala three different times in 2009, and it was wonderful. I am a white American female with light hair, so I would be considered one of the people they would call a target while traveling there, but everything went smoothly. You can't ask for a more beautiful country, full of life. Yes, in general, it is an unstable country with a high crime and violence rate, but if you take your precautions I'm sure you will come out unscathed. Especially if you aren't planning to go to Guatemala City, where it is much more dangerous than the rest of the country. Don't walk around looking rich. Be aware of your surroundings. You should be fine! about 9 years ago
