    I went from tropical bliss to fearing for my life in about 5 seconds…but no harm (to me).
    I can't figure PR out, I've been down twice since Jan in Rincon/Aquadilla, and other than the locals being a little twitchy about the lack of swell 2 weeks ago everyone's been cool. That said, I understand that the theft situ is totally nuts, you can't leave anything on the beach or in a car. Sadly, I want to bring my college daughter there for her spring break, but probably won't because I don't want to have to be on guard duty the entire time. It's a shame, easy trip, reliable swell and generally a great place, minus the globally epic petty crime rate (and worse I guess).

    Oh, I forgot to add that what you really have to worry about are the drivers - there is nothing scarier than a Puerto Rican driving a Hummer - or anything for that matter.

    a guy I grew up with,a Puerto rican,went down there and was found naked shot 17times.he wasn't a surfer,just somebody in the wrong neighborhood.hes gone now.nobody knows what happened but it did.pr is good for the most part,aslong as u stay near the coast.if u go out lookin for drugs or prostitutes youll enter some dangerous territories

    Flying in a small helo over a boat load of migrants in the middle of the night and watching the yola capsize off of Rincon beach in 6ft surf.

    There was a killing of a tourist just south of Rincón 6 to 8 weeks ago. A junkie broke into a condo, a guy staying there went downstairs, a fight ensued and the tourist guy had his throat slashed. Shook up the ex-pat community quite a bit.

    jobos. stiff ends up on beach in prime time where the whole town promptly sets up
    camp to do photo ops w/double bullet holes to head…

    That's a crazy story, I have been to Rincon twice and both times were super laid back, no drama was witnessed, just good surf, great food, and chill vibes
