Crime

Sure, we have some.
Petty theft tends to be directed at the tourist. This past year there have been some “hold ups”.  It continues to be the case that the more serious crimes are “inter-community”, domestic and drug related.
Be smart. Be careful, no matter where in the world you are these days.
General “rules”/suggestions:
DO NOT leave valuables unattended on the beach, in a car, or near an open window in your rental house/hotel room.
Lock your doors at night. Don’t get too’ wasted’ partying!

We recommend secure houses with security doors and windows and an alarm system. If you own a rental property, put a “House Book” on the kitchen counter with tenant security measures.

The Chamber of Commerce distributes a very useful public safety brochure as well for tourists..
