You should be fine as long as you do not go out drinking at a strange bar at 3am with a bunch of locals you just insulted by saying the U.S. men's soccer team can beat their national team.

I used to live and work in a country that was on the US travel advisory list. It is just a way of the government shedding any kind of legal responsibility.

I've been to Trinidad and Tobago. Spent 10 days. Stayed on the oceanfront in Tobago. I felt very safe there, enjoyed their outdoor market. Didn't go out at night except to hotel dinner and steel band concert. Mostly natives and tourists around. We found the locals very welcoming. Never felt uncomfortable.

Trinidad is a different story. People from all over the world, crowded, kinda crazy and busy and no way would I have gone at night anywhere. We were on an eco vacation so avoided the most dense areas. Just ate late meals at the hotel.

Didn't care for Trinidad.....even then we were warned about thieves going after tourists....mainly in cities.

Great for a eco vacation though! I'd go back to tiny Tobago any time....

Ignore it. There's a Level 4 country that I was in 3 years ago, went there by myself, strictly tourism. Loved it, felt perfectly safe.


In my experience, the level 3 and 4 countries are the ones where the people will be the most hospitable and solicitous to a visitor's safety.


Many level 4 are nearly impossible to get a visa or even transport to in the first place. I was told I might find a boat that would take me to Yemen, but it might take weeks go get one back out.


So the only real question would be if I would go to a level-3, yes, without hesitation. I live in a level-2 now; been to my wife's hometown which is level-3 and very close to a level-4 zone. Went to the docks for trip to level-4 but a storm tied up the boats.

I'm more concerned about being in downtown Baltimore, Indianapolis, and Miami than I am going to a Level 2 country (which includes much of Europe).

Yes, I do. There are, for example, lovely safe areas in Guatemala.
