Do not become a Target
Based on the official numbers and statistics, San Miguel is a safe place. But the most important is how you take care of yourself. It does not make a difference if you are in Paris, Tokyo, Atenas, or London, please do not bring trouble to yourself.
Some troubles we have in San Miguel are directly related to the small measurements a person takes, there was a client – who asked: “Is it true that women can be rapped in some neighborhoods in San Miguel?” – and the answer is: “If the woman is dressing very attractive wearing fancy jewelry, walking by herself in a dark street at 2 a.m. and finally under alcohol influence; – The probabilities are big that she will get in trouble here or also in any another city in the world”, and this is just the example because it could apply to any gender or preference…
Another example is if someone buys a house, but does not use it, it has low walls and has not any staff that takes care of the property, the numbers say that the house could be also targeted even for rats and cockroaches.
The good news is that in San Miguel, 95% of the citizens (national, native, and foreigners) have reported good experiences like:
“I lost my wallet and some nice couple delivered it directly to my place”, “I left the car windows open and nobody stole my computer”, “I left my cellphone in the Plaza and they asked on Facebook who was the owner…”.
There could indeed be some problems, but most of the people in San Miguel have never “directly” experienced any difficulty in their whole stance/life in the city, and the main reason is “because they take care of themselves”.
But, what about the conflictive behaviors? or what about the accidents caused by impertinent visitors? – That will be described in the next post.
