Ok, "trick" question: Diagonal Aeropuerto, is considered Playacar or still Playa (for taxi purposes)?

All I'm thinkin is...Why would you take a taxi to the airport, when a private transfer would cost less?

I can't speak to Route307's particular situation, but the last time I took a taxi to the airport, (April 2014 6 am), I paid 450 pesos. How many pesos for a private transfer at that hour?

I would be surprised if that was the fare to the airport from Playa these days, given the rate increase. Of course you could stop a number of taxis to ask and try to get the lowest rate possible. But a private transfer (that I use) is $60 (USD) one way, less if you book round trip. I personally like all my ducks in a row and rather not deal with a taxi at all no matter what time of day. Just personal preference I guess.

Does anyone have an updated taxi price list from the Iberostar Paraiso Complex with various destinations such as Tulum, Chichen, etc...looking to gather info for an upcoming trip and don't really want a "tour" per say but want to compare it to the cost and hassle of renting a car for a half day trip.

gonna cross post in the AI forum as well but figured I would as here too!
Thanks.

I just booked a private car from the link on this site for our trip in April and it was $62 USD each way to Pueblito Escondido from the airport. Believe it's between Ave. 38th and 40th right close to the beach.

Even said they would stop on the way for beer/drinks. I hope that's true.

Every taxi or private ride Ive ever booked stopped for "refreshments" if I asked...one even opened our beers for us with his seatbelt.
