The island is very friendly and is pretty much safe everywhere you go, however, when visiting any strange country for the first time do not go off wandering by yourself, accept any tours from any non-reputable companies, drinks from strangers or rides.
MORAL: Anything you or your Mom wouldn’t approve of back home isn’t ok just because you’re on vacation…BE SAFE!
ICE your Phone:
Emergency personnel will look at your cell phone if you are unconscious for “In Case of Emergency” contacts.
Make sure to mark your emergency contacts in your phone by labeling them with the term “ICE”
Enable GPS on your phone as well.
