Chuckie you are right on. Don't think beating a local would work out well and calling the cops has never worked out for me in Mexico!

rtts551. My wife walked out of the showers and around to the back of the building and CAUGHT the guy standing on the propane tank where he was peeking into the showers.

This reads like the old book, "Eating Your Way Through Baja" but for hotels!
It's actually a pretty good read. Maybe a page here on just hotels (as a sticky that could be added to) so everyone who wanted could make a short comment good or bad of where they stayed, how much and conditions?
Like a NomadsTripAdvisor, but then again maybe the suggestion has been offered before and I'm not aware of it.
Or maybe someone with nothing to do but watch the sun come up over the Gulf could codify all the comments and make a separate post in an organized fashion?

Depends on your navigation skills.
Personally, I haven't done it.
I have seen it done up close and personal and it involved something that started with Louisville and ended with Slugger.
The cops talked about it, said it was deserved and asked if charges were to be filed over the stolen and subsequently recovered surfboard.
The guy declined to press charges since he had his board back.
Cops don't like dirtbags anymore than anyone else does.
And, just like in the USA, your justice is often predicated on your ability to smooth things over.
That being said, these were cops that all the involved parties see everyday.

It sucks to even have to make that decision, though.

Sorry for your troubles, and thanks for the heads up. I have not had anything stolen in Baja yet, but I can sure be a lot more careful!

Or, maybe even more so.
I know of a cop who did his cuñado with a bat quite willingly.

Ain't just in Mexico; it's a universal situation. Had a friend about 6 years ago stop in Tucson on the way north, favorite motel, well-lit lot with video cameras. Woke to find his camper door window broken, and his enclosed 6x8 trailer with the lock cut.... long story short, cops called, figured it was an inside-job set up by employees.... no arrests, no return, yes insurance. Cameras and laptops are replaceable, but contents are not. Still very upsetting. Even locks just keep honest people honest.

I think though in Baja, and especially most of Mexico the rise of the lawlessness over the last 10 years has created even more of an 'open-door policy' for thieves to thrive and enforcement to diminish. IF YOU LOVE IT, LOCK IT. I don't see or believe there will be any changes in trends in the near future, from Corvallis to Los Cabos.

Another short story; years ago in San Lucitas there was a local tweaker wreaking havoc stealing to feed his habit; no one was safe, Americano or Méxicano. He was warned a few times by the local Constabulary... then they gently 'persuaded him one night on the outskirts of town with a blanket/sock-and-soap party. He's been a model citizen ever since.... but i'd leave it to their Countrymen..... like vehicle accidents, an Americano is guilty until proven innocent; Napoleonic Law prevails. That is, IF you get caught.....




If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

If it don't stink, don't stir it....

and if it ain't disgusting, it ain't discussed.

Have never encountered any sex deviants in Baja. But years ago, I was in the bathroom on the Staten Island ferry taking a whiz only to note that the guy next to me was beating off.

Never encountered anything like that in Baja.

I doubt Mexico will ever have as many sex deviants as the USA. Different culture.

Mexico only has 1/3 the population of the US so you are correct Tio.

Regardless of the culture there are a lot of sex offenders in Mexico. Read the local news, there are stories all the time about women and children being abused, I've personally heard first hand accounts of some pretty sick stuff that goes on here in our little village.
