How safe is Guatemala?

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip to Guatemala sometime within a year, and I'd like to know how safe some destinations are. Not many guidebooks elaborate on this. I've heard that many mountains are unsafe to climb at certain times, even with a tour group. I've heard also that car jackings are common. Is all this really a problem? Is there any way to avoid it? Has anybody had a problem?
