E-Ring stolen from safe in Majestic Colonial Punta Cana

Recommended Posts

Okay I know I am reviving a really old topic here, but I wanted to ask this question.

 

1. Short of just never going in the water and constantly carrying a fanny pack with your valuables, how do you keep your passport, money, and credit card secure while on a vacation away? It is impossible to not travel with these and these are things that would be a target for thieves.

 

2. Do they sell water-proof flat fanny-like packs that you can just strap onto yourself and swim with while on vacation? If such a thing existed then at least you could keep all your important documents and money on your person at all times.

 

3. Would it not be prudent to encourage all guests to check the resort's policies on theft before booking so that you know what to expect if something were to happen? That way, a hotel with an inadequate theft policy can expect to see a lot less bookings than one that did.

I remember this... I was actually at the resort for a friends wedding when this happened and the entire resort heard about this girl.

I do feel bad for her, however, why are you bringing a $25k ring with you?

I think if you can afford a ring like that, you can afford a replica of it made. Its not worth taking chances on something with that value.

Okay, so now after reading this, and reading many peoples opinions about the DR...is it safe to travel to? I have been there before, and had no problems what so ever. I also know a lot of other people who have gone 2-3 times and would go back again...

 

But now this makes me nervous...

I believe DR is just as safe to travel to as any other popular carribean spot. This story, honestly, sounds like one of those freakish incidents where the accounts of the events really don't add up from either of the two parties involved (I researched it on the net and there are a lot of holes in this story from both sides, probably due to pending legal actions). The truth here may never be known. I think the only take-home points from here are to

1. Be smart with your valuables to minimize the chance that this will happen to you.

2. Have the numbers to the embassy of your country in the event that you end up in a crisis.

3. Have the number to your tour operator or whoever you booked your trip with for support.

4. Please, insure your $25K ring.

 

Now my question: What are measures that other people take to prevent theft/loss? Maybe someone has a unique strategy they use? An water-proof pouch? Hide their credit card in a sock? Lock up the suitcase? These would be more practical things to talk about and quell some fears.

Here's a thread I created not too long ago with some tips from me and others:

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
