Are the areas we are traveling to safe?
Safety is always a concern when traveling and living in third world countries. Third world conditions may result in circumstances beyond the control of FHe.
SHe and FHe have been operating successfully in Guatemala for several years and is familiar with the areas to which we will be traveling. Be assured that your safety and security are a priority. In addition to following any instructions your expedition leader gives you, you should remember to avoid walking, traveling, or being out after dark in urban or rural areas. If travel is necessary, do not go alone. Also, when in city areas, be sure to keep a very close watch on all of your belongings. It is recomended that expedition participants protect themselves from being targeted by thieves by not packing or wearing nice jewelry or expensive-looking watches.
