I agree with other comments. I have been in Puerto Rico three times since this fall, and I felt perfectly safe, at all times, in Old San Juan. I am certain there are parts of the island that are less safe, but that is true of any place. Still, my son lives there so I have spent a lot of time in the area , always feeling safe and respected. I was there alone for a couple of days as well- still felt safe and no inappropriate remarks. In fact I found everyone as vert friendly and I felt safer than I do in most American cities..
