It seems everywhere we turn, someone is giving us advice: "Oh - don't go here - not worth it, don't go there, nothing to see...Stay away from this anchorage - the people are all terrible hustlers...You're going to Grenada? Well, you know about hurricane Ivan right...Why would you go to Martinique - it's horrible...etc. etc.". Rumors of theft, rude locals, rolly anchorages and more pour (unsolicited) from the mouths of well meaning travelers who have been here before us. While we definitely appreciate the advice (which is almost always in the form of a warning) - we have learned not to take it all the time.
