I have researched getting to Barro de potosi from Zihua( thanks for the taxi rate info) but my question is are there taxis in Barro de Potosi readily available to come back to Zihua?are the rates the same etc? Or is it a better option to just rent a car for the day? We are traveling with a 14 y/o who is not a well versed traveler. Thanks for any advice!

The taxi rate page says 380? meaning it is an educated guess. I would think a little higher ,but not a lot higher. You see taxis regularly going by. I've always left by about 4PM, so I don't know about nighttime availability. Many taxi drivers will come pick you up.

You can now take a bus also. Catch an aeropurto bus and get off just before entering the airport. Then go around the corner to the right and catch the Barre bus. Don't know the hours it runs,

Hello,
It depends on the time of the day. Sometimes if you leave later in the day there are no cab drivers. Another option is to negotiate with the driver that takes you to Barra to come pick you up. They probably need to give some money to the cab drivers in Barra (if they are still there).

Take a combi to the airport then another to Barra. It's not difficult and you'll save a bunch of $. I am pretty sure the combis run into the evening at least but check with the driver on the way there.

Thanks for the info. Another maybe stupid question, where do people grab combis for different destinations?

Depends where you are. I live in El Centro so I would go to the Mercado Municipal where many combis park and check their windshields for one that says Aeropuerto or ask around. Also on Avenida Morelos in the same vicinity as the mercado. But if you're coming from La Ropa or La Madera maybe you can catch one at the bus stop at Plaza Kioto.
