So you have all your Christmas gifts, and possibly 3 Kings gifts if you're lucky (or tricky!) but now is the time to hang onto them!
Fuerteventura is a low crime rate area but those Bandits that we do have tend to be especially active this time of year and target the tourist community because :
You can't stop a determined thief, but DON'T make it easy! Those Mobiles, Tablets, Cameras,Watches, Sunglasses etc. if you leave them laying around and on view you are tempting our petty thieves to "Nip in & out" (typically less than 3 minutes!) grab your stuff and disappear. So when leaving apartments and cars make sure doors and windows are locked, just like you would at home, remember you may be on holiday, but the thieves are not, don't leave things in view or laying unwatched on your beach towel. If you make a police report for insurance purposes remember, unless you speak spanish, you must take a translator.
