Yeah, when I went to the Bahamas last year, the cab driver who took us from the airport to the hotel had a DVD player mounted to his dash. I figured it was for passengers, but no, he watched it the whole time--one eye on traffic, the other on the movie. Scary.

Yeah, it is about time someone started teling the truth about the Caribbean, especially the Bahamas.

It all it's cracked up to be, that's for sure.

Read the news on BahamasB2B to get a better understanding of how dangerous the place really is.

Having read all of the "blogs" at this site I only wish I could print them on toilet paper to get some use from them. None of you has the pulse of golfers or people who watch golfers.

another interesting, but slightly off the mark blog. The fact is, no matter where you vacation there are scams, weird laws, crazy cabbies and hotel employees who know where your money is.

The fact is, you don't have to travel far to find this out. Memphis, Honolulu, Orlando, Chicago. Our own backyard is full of the con, grifter, sleaze that is also found in the caribbean.

Wise is as wise does. Being prepared means being aware.

CJ, I lived in Chicago for two years and I never had a cabbie that drank beer on the job or watched a movie while he was driving.

What do you people expect? Most of those countries are dirt poor. Well off Americans come in and expect to be treated like a King. Its really an insult for a lot of those people who have to watch snobbish Americans day in and day out. Next time leave a better tip and look at and not down on those who are less fortunate.
