Airport taxi in US dollars

Do NOT use a credit card. It will be treated as a cash advance and accrue interest on the entire balance from day one. Only use a DEBIT card at ATMs.There are three ATMs at the airport, so there is no need to use dollars. You buy the voucher from the counter outside of the exit doors to your right as you exit. Drivers are traditionally not tipped unless they provide a special service. When we were last there the rate to La Ropa was 550 pesos (rates have gone up). They would accept $31 which at the time was about 620 pesos. Wherever you go, always use the local currency that you get from an ATM. Wherever you are you will always get a lousy exchange rate if you pay in dollars.
