off to Guatemala in February...

Jump to last reply

Was researching about St. Petersburg, Russia (going in May) and read about getting booster shots. Which made me wonder about my Guatemala trip this February. Checked my Guatemala Footprint guide which mentioned the basic over-the-counter meds but couldn't find anything about shots. Any recommendations? Going to Antigua and Lake Atitlan. Want to hike the volcano near Antigua - visit towns aroudn Lake Atitlan, I've been to Mexico 5 times - went in Fenbruary - ate from street vendors and lived - knew i didn't need any shots. Do I need shots for Guatemala? Not that I'm a neurotic germ freak but the question has popped up in my mind. Any recs besides the standard precautions - bottled water, sunscreen, etc. Thanks.

PS - besides Footprint - are there any other guides posters feel strongly about - good or bad?
