Snooky itself is not dangerous, IMO anyway. I've been down there on visits for the last several years and have had nothing but good, safe times. It's the ride down and back in a taxi that'll scare the hell outta you.
Late April last year, me and a friend were heading back to PP in a taxi when we drove through a squall and heavy downpour. It rained so hard that the windshield wipers couldn't keep up with the amount of rain. Yet, the cab driver still had the pedal to the metal, essentially driving blind on that crazy two-lane highway. After a couple of minutes of this madness, we politely requested that the driver to slow down. He turned and yelled at us "I drive everyday, you not know.
" Had we not been in the middle of bumfuk, I would have bailed right there. The storm eventually passed and shortly thereafter we came upon a horrendous wreck involving a big rig truck. In any event, we eventually arrived in PP safe but there was no way that clown was getting a tip.
