We have been warned that taxis in Santiagpo will try to scam tourists which surprises me. I know many places in the world where that is true but Santiago is a cut above, so to speak.
Do they really have a special button on the steering wheel to accelerate the meter or is that just talk? We are only going from Lastarria to Alemeda Station which, I'm told, should be less then 5,000 pesos.
Any comments or advice appreciated.
