According to the map, it looks like 25 pesos (zone 1 to zone 2), plus 10 pesos from the ADO cab rank (sitio), total: 35 pesos - but for that distance, it seems a bit low. Am I reading it right?

The chart says 165 but I'm thinking that is to the entrance on the highway and not to the beach.

You are reading that correctly.

Sorry, I was reading the from zone 1 to 2. That's 25 pesos. Then, generally add 5-10 to the overall price leaving from a sitio. I didn't know it was more than 10 from a sitio.

I don't think it is. I think the union is playing fast and loose, but seems like everyone, especially us tourists, are at their mercy.

Yes. But the drivers don't want you to know it

But....there are places on that list that are not correct, as I think I said somewhere before. A taxi from Playa to Barcelo says 205 pesos, which is like $15 US. It's actually $25 US, which is currently about 330 pesos I believe.

The rates are submitted to Chetumal for approval. This has not been done since 2011. Is it the drivers who are saying it's $25.

EDIT: ahhh...the rates to resorts or areas north/south are not on the "official" rate chart (grid)
Those rates may not be controlled by the state.
I do know that the fare to the airport is still current.

Right, the north of and south of fares are mostly not correct from what I can see, if we're talking about the resorts listed anyway.
