A relatively high level of violent crimes are committed against foreigners in Guatemala, so travellers should always be alert to potentially dangerous situations. Incidents of bus- and car-jackings are quite common, and Guatemala's larger cities can be dangerous after dark. Intercity travel after sunset should be avoided. Kidnappings, rapes and assaults do occur during daylight hours and in some cases affect entire groups of travellers. Travellers should be especially careful in the Biotopo Cerro Cahuí, in the El Remate area, where there has been a spate of rapes and attacks. There has been a recent rise in vigilante justice, especially in the countryside, and outsiders who have attempted to interfere with such phenomena (public lynchings and the like) have been dealt with harshly by instigators.
