    Murder in Tobago… never mind 4 murders… was unheard of when we first began visiting there in the 70’s. this is one reason we have stopped visiting there: last time we stayed in Black rock there were several attacks, and 1 murder, in that area, and it scared the daylights out of us. We also felt being in Black rock left us quite defenseless ; police took ages to get there following a complaint of any kind. (according to victims we talked to or saw interviewed, etc.) That combined with a few personal experiences with locals who now seem more intimidating than friendly, and who had their hands out for tips and payment for anything they did from singing on the beach to giving us directions, really turned us off the a former paradise.
