Puerto Barrios is not used to a lot of tourists and, although not unfriendly, it is worth taking care. Chose carefully where you stay. Be aware of your possessions when you’re walking around, and even in your hotel room if you’re traveling on a budget. If you go out at night plan where you’re going first and don’t walk down poorly-lit streets. Barrio Rastro, where some of the bars and clubs are, is full of local flavour and cool place to hang out but be sensible, take taxis instead of walking in the dark and always look for a registration number as well as ask the driver not to pick up anyone else.
