Does anyone know what the fare is from the La Ropa area to the airport using the new road? Is it the same price no matter which way you go?
Thanks

Same rate unless you can negotiate a better one. You’ll find them listed on my Local Transportation page.

As you know Rob I was in Zihua for 2 weeks and just got home today and I have to say it appears none of the drivers are following this list. The difference may not be huge but it is a 5-15 pesos difference quoted all the time from Centro to La Madera and La Madera to airport was reduced from 340 to 300 yesterday...And telling them they are not following the official rates did not seem to bother them at all. And coming back from Ixtapa at night is even worst as the rates quoted are all over the map but none following remotely close to the list...

Always the case during gringo season. When given a price that I know is wrong I just say no es 30 and sit there waiting for my correct change. A casual mutter of Profeco will also do the trick.

If they don’t respect the rates please report them. No hike has been authorized. We don’t let them overcharge us and you shouldn’t either. They count on you not being willing to report them. It’s very unfortunate so many appear to be abusing the privilege of being allowed to work as taxi drivers here, but if you report them they will be sanctioned and you will be reimbursed.

This is why I HIGHLY advocate getting in a cab, telling them where you want to go and pay them the correct price.

Saves lots of headaches!!!!!!!!!!

Would they have to negotiate an official rate before taxis could use the new road? Or will it automatically be the same as the regular route through town? That might give the taxi drivers a little break.

By the way, Doug and I got home tonight after two wonderful months in Zihua. We are sure going to miss all our very special friends there.
