    Our tender stomachs can cause a real ache if you drink coconut drinks and the nut is green. Vendors do not advise you to be careful, and I saw the unripened nuts around. So, be careful what you sample for the local drinks. Beer is better anyway.

    The sun can get hot, and if you are sitting around drinking alcohol, it can take the toll on the head pretty quick. This cruise patron looked like an example of "having a good time" having tried to local beer for the island. Prices for a 12 ounce beer is $5, and that seems steep to me, and no cheaper than of the cruise ship. Mixed drinks and exotic drinks range from $5-10, depending on what size and content you order. You may run out of money before you can the the "buzz on" with the prices to shell out for a liquid.

    The flavor for classy statuary and sculpted pieces lack on the island. The closest thing to a fountain for display is Freeport harbor which has The fish and flamingos in the water; not real. The phone boot is on display by the shops in Lucaya town, and the symbolism is beyond me.

    Don't go beyond the chainlink fences.

    Was warned that tourists that venture beyond the chainlink fences around the resorts were not promised protection from pickpockets and muggings. Resort security constantly reminded the tourists not to go past the fences.

    Although not really a danger, be aware that most any type of outdoor stall vendor will try to push you into buying something. Most things like t-shirts and coffee mugs are pretty cheap so you probably won't get ripped off, just don't buy more than you really want to.

    Toilets-Hard to Find When Needed

    Toilets in yellow building by fountain

    There are toilets at Freeport harbor, but you need to look hard to find them off to the side and behind some shops. Maybe the lines in que help to find the way.
