Cost of Taxi from airport to Conchas Chinas

Staying at LIndo Mar and would appreciate an approximate amount in pesos please :-)

Do taxi drivers expect a tip in PV?

Thank you in advance. Looking forward to coming back to PV after a three year absence.

All the info you need regarding airport taxis and the fare are in the first subject of the top questions section on the right side of the forum.

Since the driver will be loading and unloading your luggage a nice tip would certainly be appreciated.

edit to say city taxis do not expect a tip unless they do something above and beyond just driving you from A to B (handling luggage, groceries, a special stop etc.).

I looked at that information but unfortunately it is from 2010 and I was hoping someone would have more updated information. Thanks for the information about tipping. I would expect to tip for handeling luggage but I know in Cabo the taxi service is part of a union and they do not expect a tip for normal runs.

That information is constantly updated and the fares listed are current.

The list itself was originally created in 2010 or earlier, however the updates are all recent (you will see when you open the link there is a sidebar box noting comments and edits - this feature allows posters here to do their own updates as they become aware of them).

No way should a taxi cost $80 from the airport to Conchas Chinas. If you pay at the booth in the airport lobby rates are set by zone and posted. You can pay in USD or peso.

Would the fare be the same from Conchas Chinas to the airport?

Fare to Linda Mar is around $30 US. We pay in pasoes at the booth. Back to airport is around 23. No where near $80. Just take a cab. Easy. Since we usually have 4 people, we have to take a van which is around $50 to Linda Mar. We use the same procedure for that as a regular taxi. Easy process.

No, the fare back to the airport is cheaper because you are using a town taxi (yellow) not a federally regulated one (white) that are the only ones that can pick people up from the airport. It's usually about 1/2 the price.
