As for general safety, though Guate has taken a beating for some years according to U.S. Gov't travel advisory and so forth. For the most part the people in this country are passive, and very open to travelers and tourist, with tourism actually standing out over the last several years as the country's leading industry. Just as anywhere in the world that is a tourist attraction, from time to time someone will be the victim of petty theft, and as every where someone will go where they should not and get themselves mugged, or start a fight in a back alley doing something stupid like looking for drugs and get themselves beat to shit or even shot. What's New?
What to expect
For quality sex the girls are as good as anywhere. They are in the business, on the upper end, the private escorts, and show club girls, because they are very attractive Latin and Caribbean honey's and enjoy their work. Some, as women everywhere, have more fire than others.
Massage Parlor: You sit down in a nice living room and girls come out, sit down with you, and cuddle up. This old guy brings you a drink. If you don't stay, its Q20 for the drink, if you stay, the drink is on the house. These girls are THE BEST. They come from Guatemala, Panama, El Salvador, and Nicaragua and they are beautiful. Two girls will cost between $150-180.
The back alley brothels are a different story. There is at least one of these places in every shit hole little village, with a curtain for a door, where men sit around drinking cheap liquor with mostly fat, ugly, pregnant chicks stuffed into spandex, spitting on the floor. It's a real Billy the kid sort of Mexican whore house scene where the girls are working to pay off family debts, hooked on drugs or booze, and only trying to sell over priced hot beer. It can be a very exciting experience if you really want to have a story to tell, but it ain't about getting laid.....it's about saying "been there, done that." Of course it takes all kinds and some people go for that sort of thing. The point being this country, Guatemala, has it all for sex and adventure from the top rung of first class to the bottom of third world. As a whole the country is incredibly beautiful, the weather is perfect, the babes are young and hot, and the people are kind.
