  • Specific precautions? Yes. Take a heightened sense of awareness.

    My husband and I had to jump out of a taxi in the middle of the street at night because the driver was ignoring our repeated requests to stop the vehicle and let us out. Language was not a problem, and we were both certain that he was taking us into a very bad area of town "on purpose."

    Guatemala is a wonderful country, but theft is a problem. Hide your money WELL in various places on your body.

    And when you ride the public buses, don't be surprised to see folks packing pistols!

    Have FUN!
