Don't carry €6000 with you.
Never mind I though its only about 100M to my complex it will be OK just this once, but was jumped just at the Paradise Park and relieved of a few Euros.
Luckily I had nothing else on me and I had my keys in my hand so no real damage done I suppose.

When in Tenerife, it's surprising how many spot You as a Tourist.
Shorts, Sandals and Socks are a dead giveaway.
Watch how Others Dress and even play a guessing Game spot the Tourist.
I have carried a Spanish Newspaper at times and even that can cause doubts of Your Status.
Yes I can read and understand a little too, so it's useful.
Try to blend in. W"e don't take valuable Jewelry, We don't have any.. Personal choice...
I am convinced that Residents are not attacked, as They aren't such a good Target, and
They have the time to follow up later. A Holidaymaker doesn't usually..

Never ever take all your cards out in purses and wallets I see so many Woman and Men rumaging through a fully loaded wallet or purse with every conceivable Bank Card Credit card they own. Carry cash in a hard to get at pocket, take 1 card as a standby, some people grudge to pay the Hotel deposit for a safe....its a small price to pay given the tears that follow should you become a victim!!
Don't get too drunk unless you are going to get into a taxi......these scum will spot you a mile off.
What a great thread, YG.

I have stickied it for the benefit of all members (especially those who are not to familiar with the island)
Keep the tips coming,
