    Would be nice to know what the top safest Latin American countries are, after Costa Rica.

    This is difficult to believe. Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador are not even mentioned. And even if the thing about reduced crime rate is true, it won’t be for long, what with 700,000 persons here between the ages of 15 and 24 are desperately looking for a job, but lack formal education, a solid work history, and have no marketable skills. Those without family to provide for them have only the shady side as an alternative.With these kinds of unemployment rates a soaring crime rate is the inevitable result.

      there is not, nor has there ever been a study that shows poverty as a cause of crime. indeed, the reverse is more likely true. rather an insult to every honest poor person.

    We certainly are not safe from the economic abuse being wielded by those that have set the exchange rate at 492

      Exchange rates are not “set”. Not even in Costa Rica. We have a bandwith which is being monitored by the Central Bank of Costa Rica. Panama has a set rate, pegging the Balboa to the US dollar – one to one.

    I am not the least surprised. With the possible exception of Panama, Costa Rica is certainly the safest country in Central America. Mexican crime figures have gone through the roof, thanks to the demand generated by drug users and abusers in the United States of America.
