There's a slight chance that you'll get mugged or attacked if you go out walking on random non-touristy streets, or any empty street at night. Use your own logic and don't go to any sketchy places. If you're a tourist visiting, stay on the most visited/active areas, use uber/taxis as your main transport method and you'll be fine. I've lived in puerto rico for many years and never had an issue!! It's like most places that you go, you'll be fine if you don't go anywhere weird ,and don't mess with the locals.

Puertoricans are often very polite and normal people. But sadly, not every local will be like that. Be aware of that.

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.
