I know from past experience when vacationing in Mexico that taxis in the lobby of your hotel and other convenient places are always more expensive. Is this how it is at the cruise line pers as well? Can we walk a couple of blocks to save a couple of bucks? Also, do you know which pier carnival seems to be using these days. I asked them and they couldn't give me an answer. We have a group of six people and might want to go into town for lunch and/or maybe go to paradise beach. I admit it, I am a cheapskate. I don't like shelling out so much money for a taxi. Would rather take a collectivo or a bus and be with the locals. Then I can use the money I saved on tacos, beer, and othe fun stuff! Thanks for your help!
