We're going to Placencia next month and were tentatively planning on staying in a private cabana at The Village Inn - not our first choice, but many of the other places we wanted to stay are booked. I've ready through many old posts about theft in bungalows and hotels, and some posts said the Placencia authorities were going to start cracking down.
Our biggest concern is security since we're going to be traveling with a lot of expensive dive gear, camera equipment, etc. So now I'm starting to rethink The Village Inn. Even the owner admitted they had multiple break ins last December.
Can anyone give me an update as to the security issue at the present time? I know theft can happen anytime, anywhere. I'm just trying to decide if we're taking too big of a risk staying in a small bungalow on the beach.
