I know that the airport taxis are regulated but is it possible to arrange your own taxi driver or is that not allowed? What would they need to do to pick me up from the airport?

It's not allowed. The airport taxi's own the concession.

You can, however, walk outside of the airport grounds and catch a cab just outside of the parking lot. Do be sure you are ready for the heat.

What would they need? A federal permit, something local taxi drivers don't have. They only have state permits.

I would think that if they had access to a private vehicle (not a taxi) that they are then just having a friend pick you up. May not be worth the hassle in many cases.

In the past when that tactic has been tried visitors found themselves surrounded by angry taxi drivers demanding a payment from the driver. Not worth the hassle. Each to their own workplace.

You can also walk off the airport grounds and take theCombi. But…if you have “lots” of luggage…1. Best to not occupy more Combi space than one person requires. 2. And/Or if things are slow at the Combi stop you can pay addition pesos for the additional space…But again…you may be depriving local folks from a seat on the Combi.

My choice is to walk off the property and see if there is a cab waiting for a fare. And if Yes…it becomes the driver’s issue. Not yours. ✌️
