The police patrol the beaches looking for tourists to exploit. If you are caught with marijuana or public drunkenness, the police will intimidate you and try to get a bribe out of you. Stay calm and use a video camera to protect yourself. There are also fake police who do the same thing. If they are not in full uniform, they are not real police! They are simply trying to scam you.

In addition to the above, some places work in cahoots with these "police" to try and sell you something you have no interest in and then claim you owe them money and therefore mobilize these "police" to pull out handcuffs and threaten you with arrest. Muelleazul (on the left after you get off the ferry) is such a place.

Muelleazul (on the left after you get off the ferry) is such a place: my girlfriend expressed interest in getting icecream but after the price ($80 pesos for 2 scoops) we moved on. The corrupt staff member who was hanging out with one of these "police" officers tried to have me arrested after we refused to pay. We explicitly told him "no sale" and left without having even seen this icecream served. In the end 2 police officers came up and refused to hear my story so we paid the $80 pesos and left. DO NOT go to Muelleazul they are corrupt and I hope this post saves someone from a similar experience.
