"AVOID THE AGENCY UNIVERSAL & PLUS +" Guatemala Tourist Trap Tip by rvivac

Guatemala Tourist Traps: 14 reviews and 6 photos

I strongly recommend to avoid the travel agency UNIVERSAL & PLUS +

Why? Why they are cheap but not a deal. If you think your time has more value than USD 12,00... And if you discover other better agencies, they do not refund!

I took a shuttle van (like a little chicken bus, `cause it was full like a chicken bus) from Panajachel to Coban. Not at all. A shuttle from Panajachel to Guate City, connecting in Antigua. They are always late. In Panajachel and in Antigua. I lost the bus (Pullman) in Guate City and had to sleep in Cobán.

Unique Suggestions: It depends on the value of your time

Fun Alternatives: Other agencies charge from 32 to 50 US dollares
