Dangers & Annoyances

All in all, it's fairly safe here, but there have been multiple reports of late-night robberies. Be wary of your bags in mototaxis, as there are some reports of taxi drivers running off with people's bags. Don't walk the beach late at night, even in groups.

Many travelers extend their stay by volunteering in hostels or finding employment in a restaurant or bar – fun for the traveler, but not great for locals who also compete for these jobs.
