Thieves in Lima

While there is not much violent crime against tourists, opportunistic theft is rampant. Watch out for pickpockets constantly. If you carry a purse, a camera, a backpack or just a pair of sunglasses hang on to them at all times. In crowded areas, put your back pack on your front and hold shopping close to your chest. Some taxi drivers have been known to spray their customer with a substance to incapacitate them. Hold your breath, wind down the window, open the door, get out ASAP.
