There aren’t too many places in the world you can travel to and feel perfectly safe, as a traveler or visitor. Limassol, however, is one such place.

Cyprus was recently rated one of the safest places in the world, and Limassol – even with its large traveler base – is equally safe and pleasant for the visitor.

Although you need not feel unsafe in this coastal town, there are always precautions you can take when traveling. Be sure to keep your passport on your person when traveling, and when you’re in town for a few days (such as when you park in Limsassol for a few days) keep it in a safe place, such as your room safe or the hotel’s safe.

Many visitors to Limassol enjoy shopping, but if you purchase anything valuable, be sure to conceal it well, again, either in your hotel safe or you might even choose to have it shipped home ahead of you.

As a traveler you can sometimes fall prey to pickpockets and thieves. Although Limassol is generally safe, you don’t want to create a crime of opportunity. Be sure to keep your money concealed and don’t keep all of it on you. Don’t share your hotel information with anyone and in particular, don’t share room numbers or keys.

Finally, enjoy your trip but keep your eyes open. A tiny bit of paranoia while traveling never hurt anyone.
