$100 USD from airport to Thompson’s

I have read many different prices about taxis in the area.

My last trip to Mexico (Cabo in May); it was like $80 USD to get in a taxi and go about anywhere. It felt like a racket.

I have a quote from my hotel of $100 USD (plus 60% tax) per person from the airport to our hotel.

On this site I see a chart that shows $160 but the chart says pesos.


Basically, I’m confused and kinda feel el hombre’s hand in my pocket already.

Can someone give it to me straight about what I can expect when landing at the airport for the first time.


The latest gringo.

I'd like more specifics, please, on who quoted you those prices. Do you have their name? People need to be warned, and the person who quoted you such prices needs to be either corrected or called out. Was it someone who works for the Thompson? Are they in Zihuatanejo or somewhere else? And that 60% tax is simply nonexistent. It could give the impression someone could be working a scam with one or more local drivers. So, with your help, I'd like to get to the bottom of the matter and clear things up so that hundreds of other tourists don't get bad information that may even cause some to cancel their vacation here and go somewhere else altogether.

¡Saludos y bienvenidos! We really aren't a bunch of bad hombres. B-)
