I lost my black Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 pocket camera Sunday Feb 18 around 8 to 9PM.
It was between getting in and out of taxis near the paseo de pescadores in Zihuat and our return to Ixtapabetween Holiday Inn and Amara. The taxi had a Disney Donald Duck figure in the front window and a playboy bunny sticke near the passenger rear door.
There are many precious family pictures of our stay I would like to recover.
Please contact Thomas at tander@scimar.com
Reward for return of camera or just the memory SD card.

Good luck. Hope you get it back. There have been some pretty amazing stories of people getting cameras, etc. returned if they were lost in a cab. Good that you have some form of identification of the cab. Perhaps if someone who reads this notices the cab they can get a cab company name and number to send to you.
Years ago I left our camera hanging on the back of a chair at after having dinner at Planet Hollwood in Cancun. I didn't realize it until around 11:30 that evening. Tried calling the place but no answer so I jumped into a cab and went back. The place became a nightclub after about 11:00PM and there was a lineup of people outside waiting to get in. I made my way to the front of the line and explained to the security guys at the door what had happened. One of them went in and came back a short while later. He asked me what type of camera it was. When I described it he pulled it out from behind his back and handed it to me. We had spent two weeks in Disney World prior to going to Cancun and a large part of our vacation photos were on the camera so I know where you're coming from. Hope you have the same good fortune.
The funny part was when we returned home and had the film developed (pre- digital) the first two photos were of a very nice looking Mexican lady sitting behind a desk. My wife immediately asked where I had taken them. For a second I thought we had gotten the wrong camera back. Then it became apparent that the staff at Planet Hollywood had some fun with it.

Unfortunately there are not many taxi drivers reading this forum. But if you go to any of them and describe the cab and offer a reward they will find it I guarantee.

Agree, not many cab drivers reading this. Do you remember the color of the pants the cab driver was wearing? That often gives you a clue as to which "agrupación" they belong to. I am certain if the cab driver saw it, you will get it back.

Best of lucks!

Have you tried calling the cab company to report it lost?

Their numbers can be found on my Local Transportation page.
