    Don't worry at all I can assure you of that. I will be out there soon, and again in July and September. It is safe even for locals...the only problem is that they will be poorer but Cypriots are warm and they are very hospitable.

    I do not see any reason why it should be unsafe unless there are demonstrations that lead to more serious trouble, but i doubt that !!!

    My mother lives out in Cyprus and apart from a few (still peaceful) demonstrations in the capital Nikosia there is nothing that should disturb you as a tourist. Just don't pay any money into any banks whilst you are there and perhaps take more of your funds in Euro notes than you otherwise would normally as cash machines may run out of money or banks may close depending on what happens in the coming days or weeks with the banking situation there. Certainly no reason to not go though.

    My family is also in Cyprus and I agree with Troy. You better have some cash (euros) on you just in case but by that time you get to Cyprus things would be ok. There is a possibility that many things will be much cheaper compared to what they cost now. Just don't worry go for it and I am sure you will enjoy it.
