My wife and I spent a week at the Courtyard Marriott Isla Verde Nov 14-21, 2019.
Monday evening we were robbed by 2 thugs at gunpoint on the sidewalk just down from our hotel at 8pm!
Police responded to the Courtyard and filed a report.
Our hotel never mentioned anything B4 r after that it might not be safe in the area! Our hotel mgmt never visited with us after this, nor did they check on our status r offer any "kind" r reassuring comments, nothing!!
When we checked out they still were NOT telling guests to "be aware" and that it may not be safe!

Piropos are disrespectful and unwanted. They make women feel uncomfortable and men thinking that they are entitled.

Miguel Serrano,

Cat calling is disrespectful, vulgar and unwelcomed. It's sexual harrasment. It's common and those guys won't attack you but let's call a spade a spade, please. Women don't welcome those "piropos" at all. Just because something is common, it's not right

Another note. There is something in Puerto Rico that some would call sexual harassment but it really is not. I am talking about Puertoricans and NOT illegal aliens. The term is called "piropos" is a flirtatious remark. That's it! It is not vulgar nor is it considered sexual harassment. It is very very common in Puerto Rico but IT IS NOT a call for sex or inn any way meaning disrespect. It is something very true to the local culture.

Just a couple of words. I lived for three years in Loiza which all say is the most dangerous place to live in Puerto Rico. NEVER HAD A PROBLEM. As in any part of the USA if you are into drugs you will get in trouble. If you are partying and get out on hand you will get into trouble. If you go into a bar calling attention to yourself... you may get into trouble. And finally, There are drug point where people buy what they want... if you go there and it turns out that the dealer was off his corner... y and the dealer stand a chance of getting killed.

Most of us Boricuas are nice people and relaxed. We do have a rising population of illegal immigrants that have created havoc in our country. Most of the drug killings are local dealers defending their territory.

Oh and for those use to doing things the New York way... a word of caution... you will probably get hurt.

Sabrina, there is "Worries attacked" and "Worries being insulted". It covers many types of assaults of harassment.
Sabrina on Mar 22, 2017:
Please, can you do a category wich includes sexual assaults and/or street harassment.

There's almost nothing helpful for women here...!
