    • Safety/flooding in coban Guatemala

      Cobán Jul 12, 2014 at 6:41 PM

      About to take my son to coban next week. Any concerns about safety or flooding?

    • 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.



    • 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?

      Transportation to Montericco

      by Karen10019 Online Now Nov 7, 2003 at 7:25 AM

      What's the best way [ most direct] to get to montericco from guatemala city? I am a woman travelling alone. Everyone I know who has been to Guatemala has advice for me. I've been told not to use the chicken buses, to shuttles or taxi's. with that said... My concern is getting there as quickly... or shall i say... directly as possible. I'm leaving in two weeks. I hope to hear from someone. Thanks karen
