They have a HUGE cocaine problem down there. It is now estimated that 75% of cocaine now is sourced from Guatemala. It is getting more and more dangerous and you would be crazy to travel to Guatemala right now. Traffickers recently stole back from police 1/2 a ton of coke valued at $6.2 million. The drugs had been seized in recent busts but the cartels are too strong and took it back. Great story from Reuters here. The scary part is it took 2 and a half hours to load the cocaine back into SUV’s. Doesn’t sound like too many people tried to stop them.
