Some perspective on crime in Nevis

Jump to last reply

On several other travel sites and via word of mouth from fellow travelers, I keep hearing cautionary tales about how crime on Nevis is steadily rising, especially violent crime. While I usually take these things with a grain (and sometimes a shaker) of salt, I'd be interested in hearing some perspective from locals or frequent visitors on what the situation really is.

We are renting a villa on the island early next year, and people keep telling me to be wary of break-ins, etc. We always use our common sense when traveling — no flashy jewelry, locking car doors, keeping valuables out of sight, etc. — but do we really need to go above and beyond basic precautions like this?

Thanks in advance.
