"Do not wear expensive jewelry..." Acapulco Warnings Or Dangers Tip by barbaraq

Acapulco Warnings and Dangers: 33 reviews and 26 photos

Do not wear expensive jewelry while touring. Showing off your riches is a sure invitation to get mugged. There are lots of places to buy jewelry here and the workmanship is beautiful - just be careful not to flaunt the stuff you buy and make sure you store it in the hotel safe and not just in your room. That goes for your passport and travellor's cheque as well. Remember that you are in a third world country. It is hard to believe sometimes but crime does exist here. It is not just a paradise for vacationers - real people live here too and not as well as you.
