Solo Girl Travels in Guatemala?

Jump to last reply

I'm planning to move to Guatemala for a couple of months next summer or fall to study Spanish, and it looks like I will be going out on my own. Is this a terrible idea? I speak enough spanish to get from point a to point b, to ask for help, and to purchase things (high school spanish, basically, it's just been a few years). Is this a totally crazy idea? People I know tend to think so- I'm young, blond, pale, and fairly attracticve. But I've been to Guatemala once before briefly, as a side trip from Belize. I studied abroad in Ghana, so I'd used to being alone and experienced in dealing with aggressive men. Does anyone have any tips or advise for me?

Thanks!
