I have had a week of "timeshare" salesman,drug dealers , teenage scam artists,and thieves. On Thurs. while a group of us were doing yoga on a friends beach we saw a timeshare salesman haranguing tourist on the beach. We stopped and were watching him , seeing us he began screaming at us ."I can do what I want to here, you gringos go home to your own country etc (Many expletives). Yes, my friend did call the authorities (nothing)
Two days later my grandchildren were sitting on our pier and were approached to buy drugs twice within an hour. Same day their snorkling stuff was stolen from the same pier while they were swimming under it. Yesterday, I watched the kids feeding crocodiles and of course , still using the ploy of raising money for a basketball team. When that didn't fly they started harrassing them verbally. I can only guess how impressed these tourists were with our island. Before anyone asks, yes I have contacted the authorities over and over to no avail. Hopefully, someone else can succeed in putting a stop it all this.
