Daughter arriving ahead of us in January and needs to get to Hotel Mercedes in La Madera Beach area. Does the transport company at the airport try and put people together if there is room in one of the vans, $600 for a single taxis is rich.

Sub question. Is Tako Taco open still on Paseo del Palmar she will be hungry when she gets there around 9 pm on a Thursday night, Jan 2? Or other suggestion close to there?

The taxi that took me from the airport to Centro 2 weeks ago charged me 200 pesos.

I paid 150 pesos for a shared ride to Centro on November 20th. I got the ticket at the taxi booth.

So if the Airbnb we've booked offers to have a driver pick us up for 30.00 (US) we should say 'no thanks', we'll go it alone? :-)

Your first mistake was renting through AirB&B instead of one of my recommended lodgings. ;-)

On top of that it looks like they're trying to gouge you for the ride from the airport. :-o

Ha ha. Live and learn, Rob. Next time, I'll know better. But thanks for the info, I think I'll let the hosts know that we'll make it on our own. That's why I'm loving this board. Soaking up all the info I can find and tucking it in my pocket. ;-)

Hi, are you saying it's cheaper to buy from the ticket booth in the airport as opposed to hailing a cab outside ?

You can't hail a cab at the airport. You have to walk off the airport to the restaurant just off the airport property. I've always just bought the voucher. After a long flight it's just easier.

Well this was going to my follow up question about cabs just off site. We are just taking a short hop from MEX to ZIH. Is it still worth walking off the airport grounds to find a taxi, I remember Rob or someone suggesting this is the past?

You pretty much have to hail a taxi that has just dropped someone off then meet them outside the airport gate since they're not allowed to pick you up on airport property nor to wait outside the airport for possible fares. It's a gamble and a bit of a hassle.

If you click on his link in the post above you will see that the cab you hail outside is the same cab for which you would buy a ticket inside.

Thanks everyone
