Water safety is always a biggie. The most dangerous time for riptides (and apparently stingray stings) is the two hours before and after low tide. Tide Charts are available in the free â€śDominical Daysâ€ť magazine. Swim between the flags when the lifeguards are on duty from 8 a.m. till 5 p.m. (to help the Lifeguard Program out with a donation see Mike Witte at Roco Verde Hotel and Restaurant).
Party sensibly. Donâ€™t tempt petty theft by leaving stuff lying around or even in locked cars. Take extra care of your belongings if youâ€™re camping. The local tourist police can be reached at 2787-0369 or 8324-2647.
