This story caught my attention and thought I post here. This is some crazy stuff and a warning that women traveling should be more careful to not go outside by yourself. The other issue is that US citizens traveling to Central American and Carribean countries are being attacked. There was another story not to long ago of a couple vacationing in Costa Rica when a man was attacked by a maintenance worker at a hotel he was staying at with a machete. Luckily the man was able to fight his attacker and subdue and kill him in self defense.
This story is graphic, and I hope that US citizens think twice before going on vacation to this places where US citizens are becoming targets of vicious random violence. At least be better prepared in case of an emergency, but also be cognizant that traveling to any South American country is dangerous, especially in these times where the drug trade and human trafficking is at an all time high, and laws of the certain countries are non existent where corruption reigns supreme as the law of the land!
