Truth About “Tourist Inflation”

Never mind the taxi drivers sit around all day to get one ride for the day. I don't see how they feed their families. With the fees, upkeep of vehicles, gas prices, and too many taxis, no one makes money. It's always the little guy who gets the blame, put it on the ones who created these conditions.

The state government screwed this situation up by issuing too many taxi concessions. We have over 600 taxis in Zihuatanejo. Half that many is what we should have for them to be able to charge what taxis in places like Morelia charge and prosper. They will NEVER prosper by raising their rates and continuing to have this many taxis. We used to use them quite a bit. Now, almost never. Our situation is similar to hundreds of our neighbors.
