Drugs and other annoyances in Antigua Feb 16, 2008
Long-haired males are not only likely to get special treatment at security control and customs at many airports, but are also seen as potential costumers to buy drugs in Antigua. That's probably the reason, why I was asked so many times, if I want to buy some ganja or whatever you may call it. I don't know about the legal status of cannabis products in Antigua, but I am surely not interested in them. Fortunately, a friendly "no, thanks" works quite well.

In addition to that, avoid to be close to a cruise ship when its passengers are disembarking. Taxi prises will rise to unbelievable heights if they know you aren't a local. Locals will aproach you trying to get you into their van for a day tour. Some others are trying to give you a special offer on braiding your hair (back home, I wouldn't have the slightest idea how to explain that to my boss...). And of course, also the drug dealers are looking for potential costumers around the cruise ships. So, if you do not want to feel like a wounded gazelle in the Serengeti, look for your taxi or go shopping at any other time or at least somewhere far away from the cruise ship terminal.
Evil Cruise Ship!
