Interesting article. I'll heed this advice if we ever move to St. Maarten and decide to open up a business. But, for those who visit as tourists many of these same pre-cautions apply. My three pieces of advice would be as follows: (1). Carry as little cash and jewelry on you as necessary. Use your room safe to lock up anything that you don't need or require for that day, including your passports. (2). Never, ever walk alone at night unless you're absolutely certain of your immediate environment. This especially applies to the beaches, side streets, and boardwalks. (3). Use taxis and forego the rental car if driving after dark and unsure regarding directions, parking, etc. We've never had an issue on SXM and don't intend to let there be a first time in the future.

My advise would be a little different.

No matter how much cash you have on you , the thief doesn't know until the act of robbing you.

Exactly. Totally agree with Wendell.

But, if you get mugged it would be a lot smarter handing over $75 rather than $750. I think the key here is having some cash on you rather than the whole roll. Of course, the goal is not to be in a position to get robbed in the fist place!

I have a different take on this. If the courts step up the problem might go away!!!!!!
