Is Guatemala Safe?

Jump to last reply

I am planning to go to Antigua, Panajachel and Chichicastenango with the final night near the Airport in Guate City after Xmas.

With political events unfolding and the current elections, the situation seems dodgy. The Foreign Office report does not sound that good and the US State Department's verges on hysteria... Can anyone tell me of recent experiences? or assure me that if one avoids certain areas things will be OK? Or should i go to Costa Rica instead?
Many thanks
