Tunisia Security Update

Visit Tunisia

Tunisia Landscape

Greetings! My name is David Santiago and I just LOVE Tunisia!  I discovered this Mediterranean pearl back in 2000 when I was assigned to the American Embassy in Tunis, Tunisia.

After my embassy days I went on to serve as the Security Manager for the American Cooperative School of Tunis for almost 10 years.  During that time I had some amazing experiences!  

For a long time I’ve been advising expats & travelers about how to explore and enjoy Tunisia Safely!

Everyone should visit Tunisia!

“Tunisia has enough history and diverse natural beauty to pack a country many times its size. With a balmy, sand-fringed Mediterranean coast, scented with jasmine and sea breezes, and where the fish on your plate is always fresh, Tunisia is prime territory for a straightforward sun-sand-and-sea holiday.”

Beyond the beaches, it’s a thrilling, underrated destination where distinct cultures and incredible extremes of landscape – forested coastlines, Saharan sand seas in the south – can be explored in just a few days.”

Security Awareness

Terrorist attacks in 2015 that targeted foreign visitors caused damage to the important tourism industry, something that Tunisia has struggled to overcome, but the removal of travel advisories for the country by Western governments has given the industry a chance to start to rebuild.
