Mendoza Warnings and Dangers: 23 reviews and 14 photos

This "warning & danger" tip is not neccesarily related to Mendoza or Argentina (and I can really get furious if travellers complain about thieves in Mendoza - alone).

While I was there, I heared of 2 robberies in the peatonal (pedestrian zone).
The tourists were sitting in cafés, their backpack with all valuables sitting on the floor or a chair.
Someone passed by and dropped things, either keys or money - the tourist was helpful, picked it up and brought it back to the person who "lost" it.
Neglecting to take care of the backpack.
When the tourist got back to his table - backpack was gone.

This can happen everywhere in the world, so not necessarily only here.

But - wherever you go, put your valuables in a safe place, which is NOT the backpack.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
