A warning about guides in El Peten

Jump to last reply

Make sure if you hire a private guide for expeditions that you obtain a price quote in advance. Numerous members of this and other forums recommended Luis Olivaros as a guide to Tikal and surrounding sites. He brushed off or responded jokingly to several inquiries about his daily rate, and then at the end of 3 days demanded an exorbitant sum. If your guide won't provide a quote, insist, then find someone else. I was too trusting and hadn't expected such unethical business practices from someone who seemed so well known.
