I'm not so sure if this is a trap as such but...
In the airport they have the phones that are free to ring the hotel that you are staying at to get a shuttle to come and pick you up. IT'S NOT FREE as one would think. It is sometimes cheaper to catch a taxi or even better a bus. We got slapped with a US$7 charge each along with the 6 other passengers - a grand total of US$42! Total trip time was about 5 minutes!! On the way back we caught a cab for about US$8.
