Buy extra beds and have someone clean the house. I should blend in nicely since I speak Kanjobal and the town I will be staying that's the language they do speak. So people might think I am one of the locals until my Spanish will be what is going to give me away since it is different. Sounds like a great trip for the family. We have good friends in the US who are originally from Sta.
Eulalia in Huehue and also speak Kanjobal or Conjobal, or Q'anjob'al They took their kids to see the family a few summers ago and had a wonderful time, but I think the kids were a bit surprised that it was so cold and damp. So, in case you've not already thought of this, plan on bringing some warm clothes. Also, when you see the pediatrician you could ask about whether to bring something with you in case anyone gets travelers' diarrhea or upper respiratory infection, both of which seem to be fairly common in visitors to the area.
We are currently staying at beautiful Lake Attitlan. YES, the once pristine lake is becoming more and more polluted and the corrupt government is doing absolutely nothing to protect the environment in Guatemala!. This is our 3rd week in country. While this particular area and Antigua are relatively safe. We have talked at length with local families because we have done a home exchange with a very wealthy family here.

They have ALL been robbed at gun point. While the families of European heritage we have met here are very nice. This country is not only the most dangerous place we have visited, it is also the most dirty. The roads are also in very poor repair. We have been told by many people that if someone looking like a policeman tries to stop us on the road, and if there is no police car or military truck visible.
We will not be visiting Guatemala again, as we have found South Africa, Mexico and Costa Rica to be much more safe, clean and enjoyable. There are certainly thieves in those countries. Many robberies take place even at the airport in Guatemala City. You are the only forum or YT poster that has described Guatemala in such a negative manner.
Maybe those rich families were transported in Land Rovers and displayed a lot of jewelry? We must have have been very lucky the last 26 years poking our way throughout the country, visiting many different regions All of your saved places can be found here in My Trips.
