Buenos Aires Warnings and Dangers: 182 reviews and 96 photos
When we first moved to B.A. we noticed that locals were wearing expensive watches such as Rolex. So we felt fine doing the same. We were robbed in broad daylight at an outside cafe having lunch. The mugger jumped on my friend and ripped the watch off his wrist before we knew what was going on...then jumped on a waiting motorcycle!
A few months later I was eating at another outdoor cafe and saw the same thing happen only this time to a local!
Be warned...it happens daily! Do NOT wear anything that you can't afford losing...if it has value you will be a target sooner or later!
