Many may know this, but I just had friends return from this location and got scammed by the taxi drivers. When the taxis pick you up they tell you that the price is for a "round trip". What they don't tell you is that you have to find the SAME driver to get the "round trip"!! What are the odds??

Just pay him half on the outbound and tell him he gets the rest on the return!

Most likely he will be driving off leaving you standing there. But it would be fun to try it.

You need to be sure you hire a cab with the "JUNTA" license plate. I believe the plates are red.

There's some truth in what Irish Shark said:

You shouldn't pay for the cab ride until it's over !

(edited to say RED tags, not yellow! Thanks, Cathy!)
