OK, I've searched this and found several sites that seem to copy each other that say I need to hide in my hotel because there are guys with guns out there throwing debris in front of my car so that they can brutally rob me.
I've been all over the Caribbean and have never felt threatened. I'll be staying at the Hyatt for a week in November and do not want to stay secluded. I always want to go out and meet the people that live in the island I'm fortunate to visit.
So, seriously. Is there anything to worry about walking alone in places like downtown?
