Incident Outside of the Airport

I have gotten the feeling that the ratio of taxis to colectivos may be manipulated. When we ask about colectivos in February, we invariably get the message that it's a long (very long) wait and that we should take a taxi.

However, when we have arrived in December, there is a whole fleet of collectivo vans waiting and many fewer taxis. People were being encouraged to take colectivos.

I suspected that they lay off taxi drivers in slow season and transport more people per driver. I think it may be profit motive plain and simple. Maybe I'm overly suspicious but I am forming that opinion nonetheless.
