Recent travel warnings
During my current trip I have found that the recent US travel advisory about drug violence in northern Guatemala and Tikal area is not directed at tourism. Other travelers I was talking to did not feel threatened, and all services are functioning as normal, buses etc. Dangers really seem to be exaggerated. On another note, the food at La Casa De Don David was very good, so was the lodging, I highly recommend it.
Watch the Beef at Don David's
Ate lunch at la Casa de Don David, which looked like the nicest resturaunt in town. My wife got a 'steak burger' that was rotten in the center. She was sick as a dog the next day (Tikal). I had one bite and was quite sick the next morning...luckily mine wore off quickly.
