I have no problem with Aruba or Curacao. San Marteen was nice too. Mexico or Jamaica, though. Nope. Too many "hey Joes*" loafing around looking to separate my money from me for my tastes. It's bad enough the resorts are rip offs much less serving questionable spirits. I'd much rather vacation in Canada where at least everybody's polite and the beer and wine is decent.

* back in my Navy days, there would always be panhandlers or con artists selling inferior goods hanging out at the pier waiting for us to get off the ship. The only English they seemed to know was "Hey Joe, spare a dollar?" or "want to buy something?" and literally shove it in your hands. Ironically, I worked for a guy from Columbia who one day bumped into me to "educate" me on how I need to carry my wallet.
