It is this. ‘Guatemala, are you serious? Very dangerous, should you choose another country? “” Guatemala will you be robbed? “,” Guatemala ?! “Do not leave your hotel after 8pm! “” Guatemala! If you go there, you will definitely die! ”

Amazing people …
Almost 4 years ago I traveled to Latin America. Due to the rather precarious history, you can imagine that I received a lot of security warnings … especially women who traveled. I will ignore this popular idea. As passionate as I have become about this area of ​​the world, I refuse to pretend that this reputation does not exist.

I hear the horror of the tourist shuttle being pulled off the highway in a neat manner, causing both theft and theft. rape I was told that if Acatenango trek alone to have a man on the path with the emperor awaiting to rob me … amidst the wealth of the tourist group? Maybe not a farmer who has a chance to go home from work or an illusion. Worry from people who never give a chance to Guatemala

Lake Atitlan is a large, navigable lake surrounded by 15 navigable waterways. Every day here feels like a perfect spring with towering volcanoes to add to its charm. What about the volcano?

They are wonderful, they are passionate, they are helpful, and they play an important role in making my experience as good as ever. I made a lot of Mayan friends and Guatemalan friends, it was so easy, they were open for me and excited to share their country with me. Some took me out at night to show me the best places to visit. They were satisfied. They always smiled and spoke English better than the Spanish. They make me happy Do I feel insecure with them? No, they really care about me, especially the driver.
