Taxi from airport to La Ropa?

Hello, we are excited to visit Zih after two long years. We are staying on La Ropa and received a shocking email from our hotel offering a taxi pickup for $116.00 USD? Two years ago they charged us $60 USD. $116.00 USD seems like we are getting ripped off, have they gone up that much? Is it safe to grab any taxi outside the airport terminal and how much should it cost to La Ropa? I did not see the price from the airport to la Ropa on the taxi page. Thanks in advance

When exiting customs, turn left and when passing the frosted glass partition, turn right and go to the taxi desk and buy a trip to La Ropa. The cost is 600 Pesos. When exiting the terminal, one of the cab guys will take you to one of the taxis. US$116.00 is, indeed, a ripoff; so was US$60.00. 600 Pesos is roughly US$30.00

Which hotel is trying to rip you off by charging so much? People need to be made aware.

Here are the official rates.
Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa Airport Ground Transportation

Why would Transporte Terrestre charge you less than normal? Are you a friend of the driver? The official rate from the airport to downtown is MX$550, A/C or no.

Thank you for the information we will order a taxi from airport taxi stand. I really appreciate it! The hotel is the “new” The Thompson. We have previously stayed at that location under “The Tides” and “Villa del Sol”. I wonder how much the new hotel will charge for a beer? We will find out soon. Thanks again I really enjoy this blog and find it useful and fun when I miss being down there.

Our daughter recently spent 2 nights there for a special occasion. Beer $8.00 US. She said the food was incredible and given the quality they would have spent much more in the States.

Not my cup of tea but they are young and having fun.

Maybe it's me, but for 8 bucks a beer I'd walk over to the Oxxo and grab a six-pack of Cerveza Indio, Bohemia or Tecate and a bag of peanuts or chips, and plant myself on the beach away from the Thompson and see who wants to party. Those prices are abusive.

I eat mostly home-cooked food, and every day I've been here for the past 30 years has been incredible and the food the best I've ever had, each and every day.

We prefer to go downtown for dinner each night. The food is so delicious off-resort and we love meeting new people. You are lucky to live here! The downtown area is so festive and authentic.

My sentiments exactly! We pull our beach cart with chairs, umbrella and cooler down the beach and plant ourselves for the afternoon. My wife cooks most days (3 times) with creative and varied menus.

I was merely answering the ladies' question regarding the price of a beer at such an expensive resort. Our kids who were celebrating a 50th birthday had a great time. And having lived in San Francisco for 20 years know something about gourmet food. They were impressed.

Yesterday we had lunch at Los Braseros on Ejido. Fish tacos (large) Baja style(battered deep fried) 119 pesos, chile relleno (cheese) 96 pesos, guacamole 59 pesos. Perfect and budget friendly. A couple of Modelo Negra Especial - 35 pesos each. A little more than OXXO but they chilled, opened and brought them to our table.

You are staying at one of the most expensive hotels.
So of course their food & drink prices are higher than most!

However, it's quite lovely, and the service is great. There is a time to be pampered!

We do our best to hit the beach with our chairs and umbrella every other afternoon and we sit right in front of The Thompson.

Do realize that we have already spent 3+ hours on the beach doing our "thing" much earlier!

We paid 320 pesos to Embarc in a shared cab a little over a week ago, yes we had to wait 15 minutes for someone else to show up to make it worth the cabs while. He took the back road into La Ropa a road I had never been on in the past. Daughter paid 400 pesos the night before to La Madera.
