    We visited here while on a cruise this past March. We were a large group and we hired a driver for the day. He was excellent..his name is Clyde and he is a very sweet man. Anyway, he took around the sites and then back to the ship where a few people stayed back. After lunch he took us to the beach and we arranged the our pick up time. The beach was absolutely beautiful (Carlisle Bay Beach) and we had a great time. While we were waiting for our driver to come back to get us we were constantly hounded by other taxi's who wanted to "help" us out. It was awful. It was so bad that they even approached us and handed my husband the phone saying it was Clyde and he couldn't get back to get us because he was tied up in traffic. It was all a lie and when we were getting worried and prepared to take another cab, Clyde rolled up and saved us. He did not call us, nor did he tell anyone he would be late. It was a scam. Needless to say, we were all pretty shaken up. I loved the country and it's beautiful landscape, but I can tell you I will NEVER go there again. It's is a shame that people have to be so rude and disrespectful to their fellow workers and not to mention vacationers. It certainly tainted our experience and I have told everyone about our experience and warned them not to go there. I think it was mostly because we were a large group and an easy target for some big $$. Of course, we hadn't paid Clyde yet for our day..but his "buddies" were more than willing to take our money to "give to him later". What a shame, for a country that relies on tourism, they certainly need to take a better look at all areas of what the island covers.
