Guatemala Security Overview

Guatemala has one of the highest violent crime rates in Latin America. Although the majority of serious crime involves local gangs, incidents are usually indiscriminate and can occur in tourist areas. Theft and armed robbery are the most common problems encountered by overseas visitors. Travelers should be alert to criminals impersonating police officers. There have been reports of tourists becoming victims of theft, extortion or sexual assault by criminals dressed in police uniforms. Car-jacking and armed hold-ups are increasingly common on the main roads between Guatemala City and the border with El Salvador. Narco-trafficking, transnational organized crime groups and gangs are present throughout the country and influence local and regional dynamics.
