    Default security

    Hi. I would like some advice on my security situation. I am about to move from a hotel which has security guards 24/7 to an apartment which has no security guards. I live in juan dolio nuevo which is one of the safest places but there are not too many people on the streets which is not good. The place I am moving too has a 5 foot wall around it which one can easily climb and an electronic gate for cars. There are bars on the entrance to the building and my apartment but no bars on windows. I live on the 3rd floor with no balconey.
    Yesterday, I found out that my ex girlfriend had been living with a motoconcho the whole time we were together. She fooled me and a lot of other people. She just lost her job, and I am afraid she may do something desperate for money since she lives in a shack with 4 kids. Her boyfriend leaves when she has no money. She is usually trankila, but can become tigeraje when it comes to money. How safe is my living situation? I am going back to the states for 2 weeks. Can you recommend anything I should buy to improve my security?
    Please, no snide remarks that I am being paranoid from anyone who has not lived here. One has to live on this island in order to understand the living situation.

    No bars on windows that is looking for troubles...in your case you must hire a security guard from a company and tip him extra before you leave or ask somebody of your friends(who is not corrupt) to stay at your place during your absence
    Good luck!

    T.E.

    If you're just renting then I'd suggest move to a gated community. If the apartment is yours then do some more investing.
    Juan Dolio is one of the safest places? I have lived in JD and I can probably name 2 dozen people who have been killed, shot, raped or robbed. Good luck and for the future, choose better women.

    I know of a 75 year old Canadian who got robbed there and in addition had to watch his girlfriend being raped for several hours.

    I think I will be safe once I'm inside. The main concern is if someone gets to me when I am entering since there are not too many pedestrians. I rarely go out at nite
