Former members of the Guatemalan civil defense patrol blockaded roads in the Peten in mid-June, including all roads to the Flores airport and to the famous archaeological site of Tikal. Many people had their movement restricted and a group of tourists were forcibly detained at Tikal for 36 hours until protesters and the government agreed to negotiations, which are now underway. If talks are unsuccessful, protests and blockades could resume, and travel to the Peten region, including Flores, Tikal and La Libertad, could be disrupted, or worse, dangerous.
