How it works:
- Version 1: a local posing as a boat captain, offers to bring you to a lancha/boat, helps you with your luggage and then demands payment for a boat ticket.
- Version 2: touts will claim that there are no more public boats or that public boats are not worth it to get you to take the more expensive (5-6x more) private boats.
Places to beware:
- Panajachel: Lake Atitlan
What to do:
- Head to the public boats and only pay to the real boat captain.
