      safety in antigua

      Guatemala City Yesterday

      Hi guys, I've just booked my flights and my accommodation in Antigua for the whole summer. I never thought about crime over there because I've heard bad stuff about Colombia as well, which I know for a fact are not true (to an extend). I wanted to know how safe Antigua is? If tourists (gringos) are the main concern I should be fine as I'm half latina myself and I might be considered a local?idk but please let me know about the safety over there,if there's any way I can be less exposed to being robbed/raped/killed or anything? And I've read bad stuff about transportation over there and I'll need to use the bus literally every day so I'd appreciate it if you could help me with that as well

      My husband and I plan to spend a couple months in Guatemala with our small dog and are wondering which area will best suit us. We are mid 30's and my husband teaches yoga and meditation. I am a designer and would like to work with local artisans to make my designs. We live in Downtown Los Angeles, but also love to be in nature. We are total wimps when it comes to weather, so if the climate is different in these two areas that would be something for us to consider. Our housing budget is around $1000 per month for rent alone. I would love suggestions on where you think we should consider and why.

    • Teen Safety

      Tecpán Guatemala Apr 12, 2012 at 7:55 AM

      My 15 yr old daughter wants to participate in a volunteer program in Tecpan this summer. She would fly into Guatemala City airport and be picked up direct by the volunteer organization and driven to Tecpan. Can anyone please advise me regarding any safety or violence issues that I should be aware of in deciding as to whether or not to allow her to participate? Most appreciated.

      Hi -

      I'm leading a group of college students working with Habitat for Humanity in May, and we're staying in La Villa de Don Pancho in Tecpán. Does anyone have first-hand knowledge of this hotel?

    • How do I contact the Katok restaurants in the Tecpan Guatemala area?

      Tecpán Guatemala Jan 5, 2007 at 11:01 AM

      Anyone have any idea how I can contact the Katok and Katok II restaurants? (I'm assuming these are the restaurants on the main highway just before the turnoff to climb to Panajacel?)
