Theft is a common vacation mishap.
Leave the bling at home, don’t carry excessive amounts of cash and don’t bring with you unneeded credit cards. Dressing in overly expensive clothing, wearing a Rolex and flashing your cash screams steal from me.
In case items do get stolen, you should make two copies of your passport identification page before leaving. This will help expedite the time spent getting your passport replaced if it is lost or stolen. Leave one copy in your hotel room and the other back home with someone easily contacted.
