cost of taxi from Queretaro to SMA ..I am confused

I am seeing all sorts of different taxi fares (35usd to 70usd( . Can someone help by telling me a reasonable cost (I arrive in QRO in the evening) and whether I should arrange this before arrival (and if so, how) or simply get a taxi at the QRO airport.

According to the other thread the taxi cost is 260 pesos. If you go to a SMA pick-up service called www.viajessanmiguel.com you can request a pick-up but when I did this it came to a whopping 85 USD! So it seems like a taxi is the way to go. There is a booth to your right as you exit customs clearly marked TAXIS so get your ticket there and hand it to the first taxi in line. It will be a fixed price and you don't need to pay the driver anything but a tip will be appreciated!

P.S. That 260 sounds really cheap to me because I believe from QRO bus station it is 390 but even so I am sure a taxi will work out much cheaper than a pick-up. Bear in mind that the driver may not know all the streets in SMA and might end up asking for directions - that is the only downside!

Following Steves' advice on my earlier post, I have a deal for 350 pesos from downtown Q to SMA, its seems reasonable. From the airport it will probably be a fixed price.

We recently paid $39 from the bus station. With 4 of us in the group it was worth it. I had a map of san miguel which came in handy as the driver was not familiar with the streets of san miguel and was about to take us to the wrong part of the town.

Just to clarify. The taxi from Querétaro bus station to San Miguel de Allende is $390. And that's pesos.

But the PP is correct: always have instructions or a map, since Querétaro cabbies can't be expected to know their way around SM, especially its one-way streets!
