    This is true for the most part. Sh*t can happen anywhere. I have witnessed some seriously f*cked up Americans on trips and actually would have liked to kick their arses as a gift to the locals. Might want to know a little about a place before you go. If it is impoverished I would suggest not to bring the bling. Most of the time if you treat people with respect you get it back. Learn how to say, or at least attempt, thanks, please, beer, bathroom and sorry in the native language. Don't be a d*ck!

    You might get jacked on Singer Island late at night. Definitely across the bridge in Riviera Beach. You don't have to catch a plane to be in the wrong place.

    Just wanted to add my 2 cents here. I, perhaps naively, travelled around Nica for 5 months a couple years back and never had any issues. Bought a car in CR and cruised up the coast checking out all the different surf spots along the way. Spent most of my time in a small town of Aposentillo, next to a wave called "the boom". Grant it, it's much more remote and touristy than SJDS, and I'm sure that in itself made it safer. Either way, it wasn't until I got back home that I heard all the horror stories...

    Nicaragua is pretty crowded now was there 15 years ago. You want sketchy and crime ridden head to el Salvador. Cheap weed and beer costs 75 cents. The ms 13 ain’t so bad either
