Taxi question for Playa regulars

5 of us will be traveling in March. Will we need 2 taxis, or will we find taxis large enough to squeeze all of us into? And, are fares charged per trip and/or per person?

Can we get by with one taxi--- if I put one of us in my backpack?

I see you live in my neck-of-the-woods, Critter. Did you spend your weekend bailing out your basement, as I did?

Doug has been sitting at his computer since 2003 waiting for that answer. What took you so long?

I would think that would depend on the driver and the size of the taxi. 5 of you plus one driver makes six passengers. Might be a little snug in a Nissan or similar make. Plan on putting four of you in back if they allow it. Put largest person in front seat. It might work if you are young and thin. For me and my group, we would probably need two taxis (although I would gladly let my wife sit on my lap in back). An offer of an extra buck or two tip might help persuade the driver to allow all of you to ride in one taxi if he is hesitant to allow it.
