I am a giant chicken.

Jump to last reply

I admit it, and I also posted in the Mexico/Central America forum. It also may not happen, so I may be posting here for no reason.

However we are considering taking a cruise to Key West (no issues), Costa Maya (looks nicely manageable), Trujillo (makes me a little nervous), and San Tomas de Castillo (makes me much more nervous).

How justified is this? My sister was concerned that even shore excursions might be targets in Honduras and Guatemala (and she's much less of a chicken than I am, in many ways).

We would be inclined to take shore excursions, usually exercise common sense (although DH is LOUD), and speak reasonable Spanish (mine is probably the best, although I read it better than I understand it, and I'm a hesitant speaker--DH reads it not all, sometimes understands, and wades in yelling, often fairly profanely, when it comes to speaking--Kid can read and understand a little but can't speak it).

This may not come to pass, because I may not be able to get the cruise at the price I want to pay, but feelings about safety and enjoyment will play into our decision.
