If you are planning to travel in Mexico, specifically to Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Cancun, or any other Riviera Maya destination, we hope this video helps make your trip more enjoyable. These are ways that we were scammed in these cities in Mexico, despite speaking Spanish and currently living in the country.

We think some of the behavior in Playa del Carmen and these other locations is unethical, wrong, and dishonest. We don't want other people to fall into tourist traps (ike we did) because they didn't know what to look for or how to stick up for themselves. Most of these scams happened on 5th Avenue (Quinta Avenida in Playa del Carmen) and also in Cozumel.

- Taxi scams in Cancun, Mexico
- Tipping cab drivers in Mexico
- Extra charges on the bill for substitutions
- Two for one drinks in Playa del Carmen

- Ordering water at a restaurant in Mexico
- Forced gratuity added to the bill in Playa del Carmen and Cozumel
- What to tip in Mexico
