Exercise caution and be vigilant if you’re visiting the Bahamas.

Due to a recent crime wave, the U.S. State Department has issued a travel warning for anyone traveling to the popular tourist destination.

This week, the federal government released this statement: “Violent crime, such as burglaries, armed robberies, and sexual assault, is common, even during the day and in tourist areas.” There are four levels of advisory in the State Department’s warning system: Level 1 (“Exercise Caution”), Level 2 (“Exercise Increased Caution”), Level 3 (“Reconsider Travel”), and Level 4 (“Do Not Travel”). The advisory is designated as Level 2, which means “Exercise Increased Caution.”
