How it works:
- Situation: you may encounter this scam after disembarking from a cruise from San Juan, as there are many tour operators there soliciting customers.
- Opening: a rogue operator will claim that wherever you are going is currently closed or for instance, that your hotel is not ready yet and you cannot leave your luggage there.
- Set-up: instead, he offers to take you to some other places (where he gets a commission) while taking care of your luggage in the vehicle.
Places to beware:
- San Juan: Port of San Juan
What to do:
- Always see for yourself if a place is really closed or unavailable.
