Taxis, Uber and Applications

Taxis in los Cabos

One option available to get to your hotel is to use the taxi service located outside the airport terminal. You can easily identify them by their yellow or golden color. They are Van-type vehicles for a maximum of 6 to 8 people and are usually on site 24 hours a day.

Taxis can also be an option if what you want is to move in the capes, either to get to a beach or a restaurant without the need to wait for public transport. Taxi sites are very close to the hotels, if you require one you just need to notify the bell boy of your hotel so that he can contact you by radio and arrive for you at the hotel lobby.

Referring to the costs, they are very variable depending on the time of day (or night), the origin, and the destination; For example, A journey from the Airport to the center of San Jose del Cabo is approximately 550 Mexican pesos per person, but the same journey to the airport can range between 600 and 500 Mexican pesos.

So, is it a good option to take a taxi from the airport?

Depending on your case, it may be an option to get to your hotel or lodging. It is important to remember that both taxis and companies that are dedicated to transferring tourism, are regulated with permits issued by the government of the state of Baja California Sur, so they are safe means to transport you within the tourist destination. Although the important point to remember is that, although they are regulated vehicles, prices may change without prior notice and in most cases, it is usually more expensive than a service contract in advance.

What is the situation of Uber and other transportation applications?

With the recent arrival of digital transportation platforms in Los Cabos, differences have arisen between the government and private companies, so applications such as UBER, Didi, and Cabify, among others, are not yet regulated, so there are cases in that tourists are affected during their trips by being detected and infracted by the authorities, so tourists have to get off the unit and have to take either a taxi or public transport to their destination.

Saying this, the use of these applications in Los Cabos is not recommended, not because they are not safe, but because they are not legally allowed, so they cannot access the airport or hotel lobbies.
