There is a good amount of graffiti that happens on the trains in town. Drugs and what I call "mini gangs" are a problem. However, police are very present and respond quickly when needed.
It is very humid. There is not a lot you can do unless you drive to a bigger city. Teen pregnancy rates are extremely high. The general community is improving, but not very quickly. There is a lot of resistance to change. It's a good area to live if you want to stay in your comfort zone. Otherwise, you might go stir crazy.
Lots of old, dilapidated houses in neighborhoods. But also a lot of new builds, growing community.
The people are friendly. The teachers are great. But there is not enough for teenage children to do o entertain themselves.
