I was planning a 7-9 day trip around Guatemala in December with a friend of mine who just bailed, but I got so intrigued during my research that I am thinking of going it alone. I am 30 years old, Asian, female, and consider myself pretty attractive. I've traveled alone before and have always had an amazing experience but always get a little concerned with my safety, but at the same time I enjoy meeting new and interesting people.
Are there any safety concerns I should be aware of, and if so, what are the activities or places I should avoid? I am considering hitting Antigua, Lake Atitlan, and the markets at Chi-chi. I also welcome and appreciate any suggestions and tour operators you may recommend.
Thanks for your input!
