Taxi Rate Chart FROM Playa

I think this finally needs to be where we don't have to hunt for it so I'm making it a sticky. To the best of everyone's knowledge, it's still accurate. Thanks to Babaloo for creating it for us! (Keep in mind that prices from an established queue - grocery store, bus station, 5th Avenue, etc. - will be higher.) And, remember, don't ask, just pay!

So the rates have not gone up since 2011 The chart reads "2011" and since the prices of gas here goes up a little every month I would think that taxi fares would go up also.........at least since 2011.

They must (supposed to) get approval from Chetumal. They tried last year with a proposal to have a tourist rate and a separate local rate. For some reason the request was dropped. So I'm told.

Is there one for Cozumel? I was specifically wondering on what the standard rate was from the ferry terminal to Caleta Marina? I can' remember what we paid last year, but it was more than what a local told us we should pay.

Yes, but not nearly as good as the Playa one. I have it stashed somewhere, but can't find it at the moment ---- I'll look this evening and PM it to you.

Ferry to the marina is less than 100 pesos.

When you going to be there?

We wil be in Cozumel next Tuesday to go snorkeling.

I'll keep looking it's here somewhere.

If you were overcharged, it wasn't by more than 5 pesos (38 cents)

Rates in Cozumel were raised this last February, I believe. The current correct fare is 90 pesos. If it were me, I'd hand them a 100 note and call it good.
