Planning to travel to San Juan next month, but article like the one below is really giving me pause.

Puerto Rico's former police chief won't go outside after 6 p.m. amid violence, officer shortages

I come from a big city and I understand using common sense, staying alert, etc. In all the cities that I've been to, there are safe zones and war zones. Tourist areas generally are in the safe zones. The article makes it seem like the tourist areas in SJ are now open game and in broad daylight. When the former police chief said she is too afraid to go out at night, that sounds really bad.

Can someone in SJ please tell me how things are in SJ?

Thanks in advance.

Ask the Mayor of San Juan Carmen Yulin. She says it safe but what does she knows she is hardly there,,,,she only shows up to dance and spends more time in the states with the Democrat donors.

You shouldn't be too affected in tourist areas like Condado and Viejo San Juan. I was there a month ago and it seemed fine. Stay out of La Perla (though even there seemed to have calmed down significantly) and caserios and just enjoy your trip. Don't go to the beach late at night just because it'll be dark and you may not have too many people around if something happens. You'll be fine, enjoy your trip!
