Pathfinder has indicated that this thread is about Guatemala

My wife and I will be spending 17 days in Guatemala beginning March 19.

Are there any suggestions of places to visit that might prompt us to cross the southern and eastern Guatemalan borders for a brief sidetrip. (Belize is for another time.)

Border hassles, or otherwise???

I don't think you are having any problem at the border.

Guatemala is a great country, enjoy.

About warnings, maybe in the capital, we were told that there were places not very recomendable, just ask to locals.

From Guatemala City are now luxury and first class buses daily to Copan Ruinas in Honduras and San Salvador, El Salvador (Beaches Galore only 45 minutes from the city)Hedman Alas to Honduras, King Quality to El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica Pulmantur to El Salvador and Tica Bus to El Salvador through to Panama Tickets can be purchased any travel agency in Antigua I recommend Rainbow Travel, 7a Av. Sur No. 8 in Antigua their info on request. From Antigua to Guatemala City take a "Shuttle Bus" $7 pp direct to your destination..some areas in the capital (We call it GUAT CITY) a little rough around the edges..more info send me a message.
