Does anyone know the new rate from Zona 1 to the airport? Trying to decide between a taxi and private transfer.

Thanks much!

Taxi

Going to the airport from Playa we always use the ADO bus. It's dependable and always leaves on time and cost a lot less than taxi or private car. Very comfortable with A/C

I would much prefer that, but we have a small dog with us. Dogs are not allowed on the ADO bus except in cargo, and we would never do that.

I never did find out what the taxi rate to the airport is with the recent fare increases, but since the transfer companies haven't raised their rates, I went ahead and booked with a transfer co. Just didn't want to risk haggling with a taxi driver at the last minute, especially with our limited Spanish.

Taxi Taxi

I would like to suggest the Playa.info conspicuously post a CURRENT taxi rate chart somewhere. The historical charts buried throughout this thread are of questionable value. Some of the postings of the maps for the newer charta are of such low density as to be almost useless. Can't see where zones begin & end.
Thanx to all those who have posted rate info & went through the hassle of scanning etc. I do appreciate your effort.

An easy to find easy to read chart would be of great benefit

How 'bout it?

Thanx again

Hello Baba or is it Mr Loo?

I started to look for it. A previous post said it was on page 7... I couldn't find it. Of course, that doesn't mean it isn't there. Hidden somewhere in in a long thread is not what I meant by conspicuous.

Also the last time I found a scan of one of the newer charts the map portion showing the zone delineation was VERY hard to read.

Again I really do appreciate all you guys do... I'd just like to have a quick & easy way to get the info.

Thanx again

I have to agree with this. I printed it off and took it with us, but it was difficult to figure out...at least for us. So, we just walked everywhere.

Yeah. It seems the link is wonky on page seven.
James picked up a copy when he was in town. He said he would scan and post it.
Hopefully one that is easier to read.

My cousin will be heading down to the Valentin Imperial Maya(VIM) in a week for his honeymoon. He really loves craft beer, so I suggested he take a ride to Club De La Cerveza. How much do you think a cab would be to go to 5th and 38th from VIM?

take the colectivos... forget the taxis.

Playa to Puerto Morelos, 22 pesos
Cancun to Puerto Morelos 20 - 22 pesos depending on what part of Cancun.
EACH, but air conditioned. Playa Express is the most consistent.
