If you want a heads up with what's going on in and around Santiago I recommendyeah I hear also that PN sometimes be in complexity with the police , according to NURIA NEWS
That must be just your area , cuz I hear differently.I live in the center of Santiago.
Live is good.
Your more likely to be robbed by the
PN around here than the stick up kids.
No doubt.That must be just your area , cuz I hear differently.
but especially just outside Santiago , the Stick up kids have never ever been this out of control.
People are afraid in their own neighborhoods ..
At night I was instructed to NOT have my window open when driving slow. and to speed up when a couple of them on Motos approached anywhere near the vehicle .. They probably Look for and specifically target RENTAL Cars more than residents .
And Driving in the middle of the night from the Airport is not recommended at all , so those cheaper late night arrival flights are no longer an option.
Last saturday there were both police and military all over Santiago, including on the Duarte highway. No idea why but as soon as the highway entered La Vega province there weren't any. I have no idea why. I go to Santiago at least once a week and I have never witnessed any crime. Guess I am just lucky.
Sometime ago ; my problem is that I like to live as they say in DR with “YO VIVO CON LA GENTE” which translate I live in the nice neighborhood; So I move in on a rich neighborhood which it was beyond my means ( LOS JARDINES METROPOLITANOS/ santiago ) …. So I got behind on my rents and the rest you can imagine ; I move back to the states where I could live rent free ( sister’s house )What year(s)?
I know people living on half that amount now.
