Buenas dias. checking your taxi rates show them at $35 for in town, but there is no date anywhere to indicate how old are those prices. There have been many price increases for gasoline and so for this reason I ask. Anywhere in town taxis are EXPECTING $40 pesos, to the point of debate. Thanks

The officially authorized rates are what I publish here. Anything else is not authorized for the taxi unions of Zihuatanejo.

Unfortunately there are too many taxis trying to make a living off of a diminished market, so some will continue gouging and trying raising their rates, but if you know the official rates you can correct them if they try to overcharge you. Any hassle and a quick phone call to their office will resolve the problem. I've ridden taxis recently and no one has tried to charge us $40. I may have a gringo face, but I have a local accent in fluent Spanish that works wonders for me. ;-)
