It is not a tourist town.
    Buyer Beware!!!!!!!!!!!! Security is the number one priority for gringos and gringettes. If you are looking at the property see what level of security is at the location. Just because they call it a gated community may mean very little. If this area already has a bad reputation I would quickly look at something else.

    I wouldn't let a reputation of crime deter you. Helll, ther's crime all over the island. I live on the Haiti side of the island an it's no different about crime/safety where you live. The most beautiful safe areas get broken into. I have colleagues, who have licensed guns, got broken into and held at gunpoint, while the thieves stole the guns, ammo, TVs and all other spendy things. They were Canadians. The security guard was in on the heist, of course. If the guard sees you carry it in, most likley cousin joe will know about it too.

    Theft can be mitigated. Bottom line, you put a bunch of valuable sh*t in your house, and sooner or later, someone will try and take it because, it's a poor island and thieves a plenty looking for opportunity.

    I never have a phone worth more than $150 on me. I buy the cheapest LCD Vizio TV and not much more. Leave nothing in your car and leave the doors unlocked so they don't have to break a window to understand there is nothing there. Paddle lock the battery down under the hood.

    Just my 2 cents.
