$100 USD from airport to Thompson’s

Keep in mind that the $160 pesos is for a "collectivo", which is a shared van, and there may be a wait until there are additional passengers. Depending upon how many people there are in your party you may prefer taking a private taxi ($600 pesos for up to 3 people) or a van ($1200 pesos for up to 8 people). In any event, it shouldn't cost anywhere near $100 USD per person.

A few years ago in Negril, Jamaica, we ended up staying in a very nice but more expensive hotel than we normally do. Taxi prices we were quoted to and from there were significantly more than we were used to from our usual accommodation, the perception being that based on where we were staying, we could afford (and would be willing) to pay more.
