Fun & Adventure

I wouldn't call it a scam when they are upfront about the money, just some enterprising men looking to show you a good time for a nice dinner and drinks? Many Canadian and American men here have relationship's "of convenience" with local women, maybe helping out with a bill or going out for nice dinners. I expect people will respond calling it exploitation or prostitution but I personally know many couples here in that situation where they are very happy and there is no reason why women can't as well. Btw I am happily married for 17 years to a beautiful Mexican lady.

I tend to agree with your take. It's not a scam. When I was 14 living in St. Croix and working on a tourist boat called The Buck Island Ferry taking folks snorkeling at Buck Island I met lots of tourist girls, and often they'd ask me to show them around and maybe take them dancing. Sometimes I'd have a couple of dates a night and we'd usually go to Mahogany Inn (affectionately called Agony Inn) which had a live rock'n'roll band that played a lot of Stones, Led Zeppelin and The Who where we'd dance our asses off and I'd drink cold green ones (Heinekens) or rum punches all night long (made with our local Cruzan Rum, of course), but I sure never asked for money or expected the girls to pay for anything. I think local guys are just looking for the same fun and maybe some "adventure". If it's fun then why not? Life's too short not to.
