    North Side of the island, we spend a day there alone and maybe see 4 people.

    i have been reading a lot about muggings and attacks against tourists because of the struggling economy, which is making me rather nervous considering i am leaving in 2 days. did you notice beefed up security? did you feel safe while there?

    Not to say that crime does not happen, but I can say that we felt perfectly safe while on the island in June .

    Take the same precations as you would at home.

    Do not walk unlit areas at night and do not walk alone at night.

    Ditto to Lisa, just know your surroundings. Aruba is much safer than most downtown's we live in or near.

    I travel all around the world for my career and I agree, use common sense, your not at home, research the areas you wish to travel.
    We have never had a problem even at 3 AM leaving the High Rise Casino's.

    Yes, I agree the water was warm and the island is busy yet not overly crowded.

    I echo what everyone else has said. It's all about common sense. I traveled to Aruba by myself in June (I'm a female), and had no problems at all. Of course, I stayed near the resort in the evening but was able to walk down the street or across the street for shopping.

    thanks everyone. i guess hearing these stories about groups of local youths hanging out and looking to start trouble scare me. i think it's the unpredictable behavior of the younger generation that scares me.....a group of young kids seem to be more "ballsy" and i shudder to think of being approached or attacked by a group of unruly teens who really don't have a conscience.....
