Safety in Antigua compromised

Although violence is present in Guatemala, taking normal precautions will be sufficient for your safe visit. Recently this footage from a surveillance camera in Antigua made public very angry. A majority of people in Guatemala are very hospitable and kind, and definitely, don't want to lose tourists. One of those two attackers on a female tourist was today reported killed in the prison.

Footage is excellent for educational purposes. It shows how a most common type of attack occurs: criminals use motorcycles, come very fast in front of the victim and then try to take victim's possessions. Antigua was so far considered very safe heaven, but lately, attacks on tourists do occur.
