  They're Nice, But Pushy
by bluewilldo

The local peddlers are VERY pushy and demanding... even frightening at times. If they offer you something, be very firm about not wanting it... especially drugs. At night on the beach it is (or at least was for me) very common to run into a handful of drug dealers. They'll stop you and ask if you want some 'smoke, dope, or coke' just tell them no and walk away, don't give them the opportunity to ask again. Cocaine and pot are big drugs on the island that carry stiff penalties, so it's best to just avoid them.
