Unfortunately, as in most places, muggings can happen, so keep photocopies/electronic copies (in a Cloud – not on a device which may be stolen!) of all important documents. Equally, never leave your worldly goods in a car – even hidden away. Wherever you are – even if you are on an idyllic Caribbean island – be aware of your surroundings. Do not make yourself vulnerable, especially late at night. Yachties make very good targets – particularly in poorer countries.
French law requires that you carry photo ID with you at all times.

However, taxis are very hard to come by, particularly at night and night buses are pretty rare. Stay Safe! Ideally set yourself up an Uber account.
