@Laurenplusalex:  I spent 2 months in guatemala last summer.  I got zero vaccinations and took no malaria medication.  Maybe my vaccination were already up to date? I didnt get any bug bites while i was there.  That being said guatemala is an amazing and incredibly beautiful country.  Visit lago atitlan if you can, i am pretty sure its paradise on earth.  Seriously one of the most beautiful places i have ever been to.

I’m lucky, as in the UK we get most vaccines, with a few exceptions, free. Malaria meds aren’t covered, and likewise rabies vaccines; but I think a 2 week course of malarone (which is the most expensive one they sell here) is about $120, so, still not crazy (it’s subsidised).

But yes, this is definitely something people need to be aware of, likewise insurance (esp if you have pre-existing medical conditions as this can be pricey).
