1. Keep your luggage with you until the luggage is checked. If it’s must put your bag down, keep one foot on the handle.
2. Keep with you important papers; don’t check anything that you simply cannot afford to lose. Photocopy your pp, credit cards etc.
3. Bring with you a small flashlight. At the night time, keep your flashlight near your bed.
4. If it’s possible for you travel with only one or two credit cards.
5. Change your schedule; try not to come and go at the same time everyday.
6. Try to avoid unmarked taxi cabs.
7. When traveling sit behind the driver so you can see him, but he cannot see you.
8. You should park only in well lit and well traveled areas.
9. Bring with you along a basic first aid kit with bandages, iodine, mosquito repellant, diarrhea medicine, etc.
10. Exchange your funds with reputable and recognized exchangers only.

yeah, great tips, as for South America i would reccomend using public trasport to get around Argentina but never do it in Brazil, Bolivia is strict with women driving and even catching taxi on their own, Peru is ok, just noisy and dirty all in all it is like travelling in Italy plus Ukraine and Russia-lots of fun)
