How it works:
- Opening: a friendly local discusses about your time in Cuba and asks if you have bought any souvenirs. Next, he recommends a shop run by a cooperative that helps the poor or needy.
- Set-up: however, he claims that the shop is about to close and you need to move fast to nab the bargains. There, you find low quality products sold at inflated price tags.
Places to beware:
- Baracoa: Playa Blanca
What to do:
- Decline. Shop at licensed and reputable shops instead.
