Worry more about being mugged by police.
I was out near Playa Zicatela last night smoking a cigar listening to the waves. I made sure that I was still in a lite area so that I would not get in any risky situation. Down the beach, I see coming at me five very dark black figures. I soon realize it was 5 police officers walking the beach looking for any issues. I did not feel any need to be concerned. I am a 55 year old man that is calm, innocent, and 100% sober so what did I have to be concerned about.
The five officers surrounded me, flashing lights in my eyes and asking me if was smoking marijuana. One male officer started going through all my pockets looking for drugs while the other interrogated me. Another one grab my cigar from me and they started to smell it. I must have said "only tobacco" 10 times. After a couple more minutes of being spun around, they told me to go back to my hotel.
When I got back to the hotel, I opened my zipped pocket to realize that they had taken all my money. About $35 US.
The police robbed me! Some people have no shame.
