    if you are going to drive from SD

    Make sure you never leave your car at the side of the road unattended. Buy Mexican insurance, or check with your rental company, some will sell it, (for about double the price, but the convenience may be worth it - up to you)

    many hotel / motels have "gated" parking lots. The extra $$$ for the room, may be worth it.

    The tap water is NOT safe to drink. Fortunately, bottled water isn't hard to find. However, it's important whenever you order raw foods in a restaurant that you ask if they were washed in 'agua purificado.' If you're not sure, do not eat it unless you want to spend your vacation sick to your stomach!

    I got ripped-off when I bought what was supposed to be a huge firecracker (supposedly was a 1/4 stick of dynamite), and it did nothing when I lit it---it was a fake. I suspect the locals rip-off the tourists in other ways too.
    ALSO, beware of the women in some of the bars that want you to buy them drinks---they might be prostitutes, who allow you to sit them on your lap and touch them (I saw lots of other customers doing this). SOME of them are not even real women---they are transvestites or transexuals, craftily disguised as women! (I know this, cause an unlucky friend of mine went there once, and after making-out with a beautiful 'girl' over several nights, found-out 'she' was a 'he' (he found-out the hard way...and yes, he hates to be teased about it! Dan, are you reading this?).
