Got robbed in Antigua last night, they stole my $900 phone. Going no phone for 6 weeks, NEED TIPS.
February 12, 2019
I’m on a motorcycle trip from Mexico to Argentina, and although I’ve heard about cases of robberies in Latin America, I didn’t think it would happen to me… but as I was walking in Antigua late at night alone on my phone, 3 motorcyclists surrounded me, about to start hitting me, and letting go of my phone was the only thing stopping a brawl and all of us being hurt. So, I’m taking this as an opportunity to travel the old school way… by asking strangers and locals how, where, and when to do things. Also will be using paper maps, Spanish English dictionary, and all communication with friends and family just one time a day on my laptop. Any tips to ensure a safer journey? I’m doing this solo and will be riding into El Salvador Tuesday morning.
