Is Guatemala City a Safe or Dangerous City?
Like any other big city, crime is a big concern. The city is divided into zones, and you must be alert in all of them. Zone 10, Zona Viva, is popular among tourists, but petty crime is common here. Other area where you must be extremely careful is Zone 1, which is the historical center where most of the cheap hotels are located; we recommend that you stay in hotels slightly more expensive in zone 10 or zone 13. Avoid areas known for their drug activity like some parts of the Peten. The most dangerous zones in Guatemala City are zones 3, 6, 18, and 21.However, you can still enjoy this beautiful city and what it has to offer as long as you take care of your personal belongings at all times and be aware of your surroundings.
