Been a number of times and the crime rates listed above seems a way off, peaceful place but like all developing countries, you need to be careful of where you wonder too.

Yes i was here in 2008 didnt see or hear of any crime but saw lots of begging and hustling people selling things on the beach being very forceful into you buying stuff. One young lad took a can of coke from me i was about to drink. I was told not to go on the beach at night on my own it looked peaceful but dark and kind of spooky i did go out of the hotel but only at the hotel grounds i didnt use the beach i was only there for 3 days. Hotel staff lovely i cant remember what hotel it was but you could walk out of the hotel onto the beach it was that close. Would i go back here no i wouldnt i didnt feel safe it was to hot and not really much to do. Some of the group i was with fell quite ill with stomach problems
