Safe to shop???
My husband is curious about how safe it is for me to go downtown shopping by myself. (He is not worried about the amount of $$ I may spend, just about my safety) I would only go out during the day by myself. I am a little nervous even about riding in a cab alone. It's funny I work in downtown San Francisco, and have no worries about the problems that occur there, but since it is in a "foreign" place and this is our first time staying in PV for a week we are just curious. Comments would be appreciated.
The main shopping area is very safe and filled with American & Canadian shoppers, including women shopping alone. Have fun!

Not a thing to worry about.
I would not be worried shopping alone during the day in downtown PV. Save money--take the bus.

Vicki, after several trips to PV solo, I have found the city to be extremely safe for walking around alone. And I prefer to shop by myself. Just take the normal precautions about not showing large sums of money at one time and if you use a credit card, make sure it never leaves your sight, or it might be cloned. I also keep my purse closed and on my body at all times. But as far as personal safety, I have never had a problem or even a situation that made me nervous. Enjoy!
PVDEB IS RIGHT ON THE MONEY , IT"S NO DIFFERENT IN PVR THAN ANYWHERE ELSE BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS AND ENJOY THE GREATEST VACATION YOU"VE EVER HAD .
HAVE FUN !!!!
Of course its safe to shop in P.V.After midnight maybe not as safe.Thats nice that your husband cares so much about your safety I think he deserves a Corona ,for being such a nice guy.

It's safe, but if you have a problem, seek out one of the "tourist" police who frequent the tourist areas. They wear white uniforms and speak English (and Spanish).

Just as safe after midnight as before. Safer than any of the US cities I've been to.
Thank you for all your helpful comments. My husband and I feel better after reading all your helpful input. We leave on Sunday and we can't wait for our vacation to begin, and I can't wait to shop, shop, shop. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Vicki
