When going to the beach
Leave all valuables in the hotel safe and just take what cash you need for immediate use pool side or at the beach.
We had one fellow who follwed my wife from the pool to an ATM, followed her for two hours after and then picked her beach bag at a hotel pool lineup for drinks.
She had 500 US in her open beach bag and he got the works along with a Prada wallet from Japan.
Now we leave all credit/debit cards in the safe and carry $50 to the pool and in my pants pocket. And not even hotel safes are safe in Mexico or central America.
It was a costly lesson for my wife. She now makes sure her beach bag is zipped up. And this was at a 6 star resort.
