Antigua Guatemala

is small. If you leave the tourist areas, carry valuables conspicuously, or walk the streets at night, there is risk. This is especially true when the police change shifts. It is probably best to leave your passport in your hotel safe or local home and to carry a photocopy instead. If you are robbed, you will not need to go the consulate for paperwork. ATMs are available, so an ATM card should be carried for instant cash. Never resist an armed robbery anywhere in Guatemala, as criminals will not hesitate to use their weapons on uncooperative victims. Hiking the Volcan de Agua is highly discouraged. Numerous robberies and some kidnappings have occurred there. Most reputable tour operators do not offer this hike, as it is too dangerous. Some guides will take groups up, but it is not recommended unless they are armed and willing to give their lives in your defense (such as a police escort). If you have to travel much, a money belt can be strapped to your waist, and a simple wallet with few dollars can be handed to a robber if one is encountered. There are many places on your body and clothing to hide a few extra bucks or a credit card. Crime committed against women is often not publicized. While Guatemala might be a safe place for some, a woman might be safer riding on a crowded public bus than hailing a tuk-tuk or taxi from an unknown driver. Almost all bars and restaurants will be happy to call you a taxi. Asking the bar staff to call the taxi for you, instead of looking for one yourself, can be a good idea since the staff tend to know the drivers they are calling. Ask them what the price should be beforehand, and also ask them to confirm the price with the taxi or tuk-tuk when they arrive. In Antigua, many locals consider the buses safer than a tuk-tuk. In crowds, it is unlikely that you will be robbed. However, tuk-tuks have been blamed for taking tourists to obscure areas to rob them. If your bar or lodging arranges your tuk-tuk, it likely will be safer. During peak tourist times, like ''Semana Santa'' or any major festival in Antigua, pickpockets abound and it is wise to keep a hand on your wallet. When walking through the crowded market, keep your bags in front of you, since there are thieves who use razors to cut the fabric to gain access to the contents. If you plan to visit sights like "La Cruz" outside town, make sure you go with an officer of the tourist police who accompany tourists there at least once a day. The municipal water supply in Antigua is treated with chlorine. However, it is not completely safe. Still, drink ''agua del garrafon'' or ''agua embotellada'' (purified bottled water), and not ''agua del chorro'' (tap water). Some homes and restaurants have purified water in 5 gal bottles and serve it in glasses. Ask if the ice is made from purified water. If you are lucky, you will not have any illnesses in Antigua. However, most long-term visitors may encounter a case of food poisoning or bacterial or viral enteritis. The best way to treat it without a physician's intervention is to buy packages (''sobre'') of re-hydration solution (''solución de rehidratación oral''). It is a simple mix of potassium, sodium, and glucose. Most cases of food poisoning or intestinal infections can be blamed on street vendors with unrefrigerated sauces or paste, but home cooked meals can also be the cause. Street vendor food is cheap, but you should avoid it unless you have been eating it daily. A virgin stomach often cannot handle the common bacterial toxins found in unrefrigerated sauces, slaws, and cold marinades. Piping hot, wrapped, boiled food is likely safe, but might not be completely free of all toxins. It is best to avoid ''ceviche'' due to potential risk of bacteria like cholera. Fresh salads should not be consumed for concern of contaminated irrigation water. Strawberries have been known to pass hepatitis A due to contaminated irrigation water. If you prepared your own salad or strawberries, soaking in bleach solution or iodine is advised. All fruits should be washed or peeled before eating. Undercooked meat should be avoided due to encysted parasites, unless imported high grade beef is assured at a well-known restaurant. Fresh cream is often served at the table, but unless you are sure it is pasteurized or precooked by the family, it is best to avoid putting it on your food. Going barefoot or with sandals is the norm, however hiking with them or going barefoot might lead to "cutanous larva migrans", where hookworms larvae penetrate and cause itchy red curves and lines a few days later. Wear shoes and socks, if you walk off the pavement. Cope Laundry Laundry can be done by various ''lavanderias'' around town. You drop off your laundry, they weigh it and charge you a price per pound (not per kilogram, interestingly). The laundry is dried and available for pickup in 2-4 hr. Locals advise that you inventory your laundry, to be sure that none is lost or exchanged. Two full backpacks of clothes weighed about 16 lb. *
