Tell me; have you found Costa Rica to be a hell of a lot safer than Brazil? Or, are you still getting robbed on a regular basis?
I was robbed a very disproportionate number of times in Brazil because I was criss-crossing the city all day in public transportation and on foot. And I also must have been unlucky because others doing the same weren't robbed as much as I was.
In any case, I've not been robbed here at all, and though I take the usual precautions (e.g. I don't count my bankroll outside on the street or somesuch) I don't worry about much.
