Security in Guatemala city. (Guatemala City)

Hi guys! We are a couple from Germany and we have received a job offer for Guatemala city. We would like to know sincerely who is the security situation in Guatemala because depend on these we will make a decision to go or not go.

By reading advices from the Guatemala Embassy, Spanish Embassy and German Embassy we are a bit scared. It sounds to us that you can not go out from house without having fear of being mugged or whatever. As well it sounds that you should not on the street when the sun goes down (about 18:00h ?? ). We know Germany is super safe but what about Guatemala, Is it really as dangerous as it sounds to us by comments????

Please, we are really happy about every honest answers. We would really appreciate answers from people living in Guatemala city as well.

Thanks a lot.
Roberto
