We have been going to Troncones every year for 8 or 9 years and consider it to be paradise. Headed there next month and can't wait. But I have heard a number of reports - unsubstantiated - of crime and/or gang violence and action there. Really? Things like a friend telling me that his friend's friend has a friend that said that "drug gangs' had 'taken over' 2 of the large beach houses"... or that people have been kidnapped..that sort of thing. I just can't find any actual documentation or direct proof about this stuff. We will continue to go, and we use common sense in regard to safety wherever we travel...but can anyone provide a realistic picture of the situation?
