Vieques safety

I have seen a previous post on this same topic however it is dated several years ago and would like updated advice.

I am a 30 yo woman traveling to Vieques alone for 1 night. I am wondering how safe is the island? The more I read about it the more dangerous it sounds. Is there a lot of crime? Petty theft? Violent crime?

Thank you

Just use the same common sense you do when traveling around where you live and you'll be just fine.

I believe that nickieph has a legimate concern.
The US media has been commenting on the crime in Vieques for many years:

I agree with Roamaround, the common sense approach is the best when you travel.
