The most recent incident involving assault & robbery on the Caracol Road occurred in December (reported in Amandala). That incident didn't involve tourists. So there is good reason to go with an armed escort.
And today, LoveFM reported an incident of robbery in Guanacaste National Park. This is the second or third such incident this year in Guanacaste.
