That was my take too: wild west. the drug trade is everywhere and unlike the rest of central America it is not hidden. but it doesn't seem to interfere either. still I can't say the area is not dangerous. I personally never felt in danger and I cant wait to go back and explore the area more. but objectively, there definitely is some danger. Still I don't think anyone should think twice about taking this route for danger reasons.
