What happens if you eat Street Food In Guatemala


  Today I ate street food (papusas) and I got a horrible stomachache for nearly a week. We (well, not we) thought it would be fine because there were all sorts of people eating them. When the other tourists nearby saw us, they probably assumed it was fine, and they ate it too. Oops. The moral of the story? Don’t eat the street food. How to stay safe – make sure the food you eat is cooked, washed in clean water, and made with good ingredients. And if you get sick for more than a week, you’ll want to see a professional. Well, anyways, it was not a nice thing, because my parents said it would be fine (Great job, mom) and I really wish I hadn’t done that.

Don’t eat street food. Really.



Hello, I am Zachary, and I love math science, and athletics. I also love video games (duh, I'm a kid) and I love writing. I will be talking about my travels in Guatemala for a few months. I hope you will enjoy my posts, and I wish you well! I will also be in Nicaragua, Honduras, Panama and Ecuador.

  1. Oh, so sorry to hear that you had this experience. Sometimes our gut is just not used to what the locals are use to, and sometimes the preparation may be at fault.

    I hope you got the medical attention you needed soon enough and didn’t suffer too long. Lessons learned on the Road! There were many times when I was in China that I wanted to eat with the locals, but did not brave the street vendors! Be well Z.!
