In past interviews, the director of Municipal Tourism, José Ludvig Estrada Virgen, has recommended that visitors and locals go to the maritime terminal and official places where information and prices can be provided to take a tour since there are many people who take advantage by selling alleged tours that turn out to be pirates.
