I dont know how long this tip will stay up but here it goes.......
It is said that Montanita is a place where anything goes. From what I have heard weed, cocaine and acid are found very easily here. I have also been told that no one really cares if you do thiese things, everyone minds their own business and even one advertisment that I read said " When you come, forget your prejudices, and criticisms, Montanita is a place to live with your heart."
I was told that you can walk around while smoking a joint...This is not true. Some people in our group did that when they were stopped by some Rasta guys and were told that they could get in trouble for doing that. So its not as free here as one might think. As a matter of fact some of the locals said that just recently some guys got busted . An undercover guy hung around the beach and was trying to score some weed. When the guys brought it to him, they got busted. I dont know specifics like how much weed and what happened to the guys but be careful because certain drugs are tolerated but still not legal.
Another thing is that although I didnt see any acid or coke, the weed wasnt exactly the best quality. One guy brought Rob some stuff, Yes it was cheap but it was pretty much crap. The next time they got some more they had the guy get them some better stuff. It took the guy a long time because he had to go up the mountain to get it. This time it was better but if you are used to good quality you might be alittle disappointed. Bottom line is if you are going to do anything be careful....
