Safety concerns?

by SallyMander Online Now Sep 19, 2011 at 7:05 PM

Was hoping to stop in Mancora on the way south to Peru. Can anyone speak to current safety concerns here? I'm well traveled but have had some unfortunate luck in Quito with theft and really wished I'd paid attention to the forums beforehand.

Anything besides nomadic crabs to watch out for in Mancora?

    I guess my answer might have arrived too late however all you need to be aware of is that Mancora is a party town for surfers etc and there seems to be a pretty liberal code of conduct. Some locals have been known to con visitors so try not to trust too many locals or fellow backpakers.
