We paid in advance. For some reason these people didn't believe we paid and hassled us to show proof. We sent proof with screenshots. 3 days later we had to fill out another form and we paid 50 euros cash for the local taxes. For very odd reasons they then took our passports, it was on a Friday, and when 15 minutes passed behind their closed door, we returned and asked for them back. He said they had to take them to the bureau of tourism and they would return them in the evening or next day. We were immediately suspicious for such an odd request, as it is illegal to hold anyone's passport for only a few minutes (just to make a photocopy). We demanded our passports back, suspecting criminal activity, and immediately left, 7 days early. We left the 50 euros to cover the 3 days we had stayed. Avoid staying here at all costs!!!
