Hoping you ladies can give me some advice on visiting Guatemala solo in February. Thought I’d fly into Antigua and spend a few days - suggestions? Things to see and do, places to stay - is it safe to walk alone? (Usual precautions of course). I could stay as long as two weeks…..are there other towns and places to go? I’m more into culture than hiking but I’m active. Appreciate any and all tips. Oh - I’m not a hostel stayer. Mid range budget.Posted: November 17, 2022
I would recommend visiting Tikal. It is amazing. I haven't been to Guatemala for many years but I remember it as fairly safe although I was in a group. You can get some amazing crafts at the markets almost anywhere. Take a filter water bottle with you as sometimes the bottled water is refilled with tap water. Check your vaccines at a travel clinic and you should likely get something for malaria depending on where you visit. A friend contracted malaria there.
