    pr safety

    i've never been to puerto rico before, and im thinking of heading down this winter for a few weeks but i dont feel like paying for a hotel. i was thinking of just finding a nice stretch of beach or something and camping out while im there. does anyone have experience or input on whether or not i would get all my **** stolen or killed while doing this in the rincon or aguadilla area?

    Technically camping on the beach is not allowed in Rincon although I have seen it done. PR is very safe especially in the Rincon area, but that said I would not leave my stuff on the beach and expect it to be there when I get back. Aguadilla is also safe, but there is probably even more petty theft there. I would look around and find a cheap place to stay. There are plenty if you don't need to be on the beach.

    you are out of your mind if you try living on the beach in pr. its not as safe for a gringo as you would think. if you do good luck.

    KB4L loves sleeping on the ground in PR too! Just remember that in addition to a potential @ss-whoopin', you are going to be sharing that ground with everything else that occupies it. IE rats, cockroaches, satos, centipedes, broken glass, hypodermic needles, etc. Sounds about as safe as volcano luging.

    Those days of camping on the beach are long gone. It's kinda like hitch hiking in the USA - used to be easy, fun, safe and quick. No more. Central FL has some campgrounds as does Calif and Oregon.

    I have been to PR, I usually went to Jobos Beach. From my thoughts.. It isn't good idea to set a camp and sleep on the beach... But I do know one spot you could do that. Keep on road heading east from Jobos Beach, til you will see small spot with rock surrounds and there is ocean, always have good waves on big days. It called Secret's Spot. Often campers slept there since it is in nowhere off middle of the road. You know that hotels are that cheap in Isabella, a big town up the mountain from Jobos beach.
    If you want to go other beach than Jobos Beach then I got no idea. You could try Surfer's Beach near Aguadilla airport. You know hotels aren't that expensive in PR during winter.
