There have been a lot of questions re taxis from the new airport and i certainly found it confusing so I thought it may be helpful to some to report on our recent experience. We arrived on Sunday night at 23.30 ffrom Madrid. Passing through immigration was quick and easy and entering the arrivals hall and passing through the massed ranks of taxi drivers waiting for there passenger we found the taxi desk just to left where we came out. No queues at the desk and within 3 mins we had told them our destination and were on our way to the rank just outside with a pink slip with our destination written on to hand to the driver ( you pay the driver on arrival)
All the prices for the various destinations are clearly set out for the various destinations in Quito. Ranging from $25 to our destination of Mariscal up to $30 for other parts.
The process was quick, easy and pretty straightforward. The journey into Mariscal took around 45 mins ( but that was with NO traffic whatsoever) .
Unless you speak Spanish it would help to have your full destination details including cross streets written down.
