Have just returned from a week in Barbados and had a wonderful week, apart from one slight issue that may be of concern to some tourists. This was around the Cherry Hill area where we got stopped. THe very friendly guy asked us if we knew about "little Tenerife" and the "blow holes" and gave us directions on how to get there. I had heard how friendly the people are in Barbados and thanked him very much for letting us know. He then asked if we could give him a lift as it was on his way home. He got in the back of the car and I did feel slightly concerned but not unduly. He was full of information and took us to the two sights, we took lots of photos etc and about an hour and half later dropped him back to where he had stopped us. I was going to give him some money but he then asked us for money to feed him and his family - he said us normally charges USD50 - I was then quite worried as to what would happen if I didn't pay him, so ended up giving him USD40!! This sounds like a different scam to the road bandits demanding money which I have subsequently read about on this forum, but seems to be in the same area. Perhaps they have just changed the way they work??
Anyway, just thought I should warn people - Heather
