What are some safety tips for traveling in Guatemala?


Answer by  oroberts (24)

Never cross the street leisurely as one typically does in the America, but cross quickly. Keep your wallet in your front pockets. You can also keep your hands in your pocket while walking around in a city to further discourage anyone who tries to invade them. Only drink bottled water. Never drink from the tap.

You should avoid traveling at night, but if you really have to go better take a cab or tuk-tuk. Please dress ordinary and in any way don't flash any signs of wealth. Keep all important documents and large sums of money in your hotel safe. Don't resist a mugging you better cooperate to avoid get injured or killed.
