How long in Guatemala and what's this I hear about safety concerns?

Jump to last reply

Rather what are the safety concerns? We went to Mexico about 9 months ago, and despite the drug wars, felt perfectly safe there, though we were in Central Mexico and not a border town.

I heard Guatemala has the run of the mill pick pockets, petty theft, and better not leave your luggage or car unattended, but what country doesn't have those concerns? Anything else to be concerned about? I'm more worried about food safety I think.

Does anyone have other thoughts on the matter?

We just booked flight to Guatemala and plan to hang around Antigua and the lake for about 11 days. Is that too long?
