    • Is Coban safe for tourists?

      Cobán Jul 12, 2014 at 5:59 PM

      I am traveling next week with my 11 year old son to Coban, Guatemala and i picked up two disturbing things online. So, I'm wondering if i need to rethink my trip and not go to Coban now.

      Two concerns:
      1) Drug cartels from Mexico in Coban. I should have seen this earlier, but i was just checking on the weather and the safety of the roads due to the heavy rain when i saw a few articles about the fact that cartels were killing people in Coban. Is this still happening? Is this something that happens off the beaten track or should tourists worry about this, should i change my plans?

      2) Flooding. I expected rain in the rainy season, but when i looked at the last ten days, it looked like there were severe rains and i saw flood warnings in other parts of Guatemala. If anyone is visiting there now, or recently, it would be great to get a sense of if this is a real problem or just the typical intermittent rain this time of year.

      Thanks,

      Paul

    • Transportation and Spanish schools?

      San Pedro La Laguna Jun 29, 2014 at 1:10 PM

      Hi there!
      I'm planning on spending August studying Spanish in Guatemala, ideally at la Coopertiva (but open to suggestions). I know next to no Spanish and will be a solo female traveller, so I'm a bit concerned about getting there alone. My two questions are:

      1) What's the safest way to get there from the airport for someone who can't speak Spanish (yet)?
      2) If anyone has taken classes at La Coopertiva or another Spanish school in San Pedro, would you be willing to chat one on one about your experience?

      Thanks!

      do you know of a gym?

      Quetzaltenango Oct 27, 2005 at 11:04 AM

      This board is so cool and interesting. I'll be spending some time here and reading everyone's posts.

      My question is: is there a gym in Xela where a lady can work out? I'll be studying there for five weeks in the spring of 2006, and that's too long to go without lifting.

      Any recommendation will be appreciated.

      Another question: how are things going after the flooding from Hurricane Stan? It is so hard to get news from there. It seems as if everyone's weblogs are out-of-date. If you have any news at all, please post. Do they have electricity, water, telephones etc? What's a good place to send aid...? Is the road open to Guatemala City?

      Thanks for any answers you may have.
