It's generally safe but it's no no crime free paradise without problems
Crime rate. Is it safe place to visit
Canadian can be cheap, however we don't tend to tip the gas bar, the taxi driver or on ever bloody drink we get at a resort. We do tip on food services as bars and restaurants. America's tip (over tip) on everything they touch.
We are not haggling for cheap purchase's when vendor's want to pay equal for something we can buy at home it's not a good deal. Example, we are here right now and they want 400 pesco for a women's Beach hat. That hat is worth 10.00 CDN, why you can buy the exact same beach hat at home from the Bay for 25.00 bucks.
Majority of these comments come from people that have a no clue about anything.
Go educate yourself, talk to the expats that spend time in Mexico or PV. Get away from the resorts and cruise ship port people and truly meet PV.
The people of Mexico are by far and away some of the nicest people I have ever met. The idiot Robert below is probably an inbred racist who still thinks the earth is flat, Putin is Americas new BFF, and the sun rises and falls over his house and Trumps and no one else.
I get it you want to have fun, just don't be a knuckle head.
We've been coming to PV for over 35 years for 2/3 months stay. Never had a theft before. True, crime rate is not as high as corrupt Chicago, Il. People do not usually vacation in Chicago.
We are well traveled, in our 70's, and have never been robbed anywhere, until now. Make with translator and follow up on police report. Police came back, in a few hours, without translator, to returned some stolen documents: driver's license, social security card, after making police report at approximately 10am. Could not ask the police details on where/how they found my documents. Jewelry/watch/phone/cash/credit cards, misc were not. Lack of communication makes one skeptical. We will return once more to conclude business here, then not excited for future visits.
Thank God, we were not injured.
