How it works:
- Scam 1: if you go on a tour, a photographer helps to take photos of you with their camera. They then offer to send a CD of these photos to your hotel for $50-100. After paying however, you may never receive a CD, or only receive a blank CD.
- Scam 2: at the beach, you will encounter many touts (e.g. massage touts). You agree on a price, but services you did not ask for will be provided to jack up the final price.
Places to beware:
- Isla Saona
What to do:
- Decline the photo taking offer.
- When dealing with touts, clarify the price and services and stand your ground.
