One Hundred and Forty Pesos charged by Taxi from La Ropa con Casa Que Ve Al Mar to Barceló Hotel in Ixtapa!!!

When I asked the taxi cab driver to show me the Rate Sheet he gave me a double faced plasticized placard with print twice as small as the print on the stock quotes page in the newspapers.

As many of you know a bus or combi ride from Zihua to Ixtapa is only $14 pesos each way!!!!

I know. I hate it, too, but those are the new official rates. Careful for the taxis at hotel sitios who also have rates sheets with much higher rates. You got the new standard rate from La Ropa to Ixtapa.

See my recently updated Taxi Rates.

Pretty funny that downtown to La Madera is an extra 5 Pesos for 1 block to the top.

Crazy rates for people grabbing one outside of Banditos when the tourism season ramps up this Winter. I've seen them deny local workers a ride in favor of over charging the tourists dining at Banditos.

It looks like the rates are basically $20 per kilometer

Something is definitely wrong when you can go from downtown to the bus station for $35 but it costs $40 from downtown to the top of the hill at La Madera or the Hotel Irma. And in Ixtapa it's simply highway robbery anywhere you go.

Buses, combis and micros are more popular than ever.

What's the difference between combis and micros?

“Micro” is short for microbús. A small bus. A combi is like a van.
