Quick question. We have NEVER had a problem in Huatulco but something happened this year that made me more cautious. We usually walk to our fav beaches.....in particular Playa Punta Arena. We had been there twice this year and went for a third time, but hubby had stubbed his toe (broke it really) and walking was out of the question so we took a cab. The lady driver issued us great warning about watching our backpack and money....she said there were people watching and to be very, very careful....ruined my day at the beach (please note, we had no problems!).
So, have any locals heard of any safety issues at these quiet beaches? Was this just an overprotective cabbie?
