Why Your Small Hotel in Mexico/Lake Chapala is Likely Safer

March 23, 2013

Hi Everyone,
 
Most every hotel or bed and breakfast guest house I’ve ever stayed at in the Lake Chapala area or driving back and forth to Texas had the old fashioned dead bolt lock on the hotel  door.
 
Of course this is not a complete protection against someone gaining access to your room and it’s contents. I may be a bit old fashioned myself because unlike most folks I carry my passport etc. on my person rather than leave it in the hotel or room. I trust myself to protect my valuables over even a dead bolt on my hotel room or a hotel safe. Yes, I can be a bit paranoid
 
Most of the places we stay while traveling are older places (less expensive) and Have not yet installed the new locks that use a plastic encoded card as a room key which allows the code to be changed and so if a visitor forgets to return the key it can be disabled and a new code put on a new plastic card.

 Watch the below video to see why high tech can lead to more crime until they find a way to improve this type of door lock.

 

All for now, Siempre tu amigo, Sid
