Hi there,

I am planning my travels to Guatemala in November and am hoping to stay in and visit a number of the villages around Lake Atitlan including San Pedro, San Marcos, Panajachel, Santa Cruz, Jaibalito, San Juan, Santiago, and possibly Solola.

I will be traveling as a solo female (20-something Caucasian Canadian) and am wondering if there are any known safety issues or concerns in these towns? I would be taking a boat to each one and do not plan to be hiking between villages, as I have…

I'm number 14

I just now noticed the circled number 14 by my screen name. Don't know how long that's been going on. Anyone know what that means? Kind of making me a bit nervous that someone chose to put it there without asking me or telling me.

Buen viaje!

Entry stamp

Hey!
My friend and I arrived from Belize into Guatemala yesterday and we've realised we don't have an entry stamp for Guatemala (we do have an exit stamp for Belize).

We tried going to the airport in Flores to get it stamped with no success. Our options now are to go back to the border which would be a big hassle and lose us a day or risk it when we try and leave Guatemala for Honduras.

Does anyone have any knowledge about this? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

(Sorry if this is similar…
