Beware of taxi no 1241!

Just got ripped of by this very rude driver. 50 pesos for a drive from the busstation to Calle 22 on 10th. When I prostested he loudly informed me that tourists pay double price?.. Stay out of that cab.

Verify price before getting in the taxi.

Have never encountered a rude driver. They have nothing to gain by pissing you off. Tourists don't pay double. It's all about attitude.

Lol. $4 & you take the time to complain. I get in a taxi here & its $10 to start. Oh my.

I always ask the price 1st in Mexico. Sometimes i get it cheaper, depends how busy they are. In the big picture unless your kind of a daft tourist its cheap in Mexico. & yes. They do charge tourists more. Why? b/c we have soooo much more.

Uhm 50 Pesos was a bargain, assuming you took a cab because it was raining or you were unable or too inebriated to walk? In which case I would have given the cab driver another 20 pesos for getting me to my destination safely.

That would be a walk in normal conditions for most people.

Cab driver 1241, hold your head high and keep being there for us.
