Going from one place to the other is a very
simple activity in Acapulco
, if you consider that
the city is crossed by a large coastal avenue that bears the name
of Miguel Aleman on its central part, Escenica (Scenic) Highway
in the east, and Lopez Mateo on the west side.
Taxis are the most used means of transportation
and the most practical as well. Their
rates are reasonable and they do not use taximeters, so you need
to agree to the price before getting into the vehicle (it is advisable
to ask reliable people about the approximate cost of the service).
Besides the units that come and go through the city all day long,
which can be boarded at any corner, there are other taxi modalities
, such as:
- Collective Taxis: Their route is the Miguel
Aleman Coastal Avenue. The units depart when the seats are all
taken, and since they stop many times on the way, it takes longer
than with a conventional cab. They have a flat price regardless
of the distance travelled.
- Taxis parked at the hotels: They are more
expensive than the common cabs, especially if you are going
to the airport. They usually have flat fees for most of the
tourist attractions. They can be hired for hours or for the
day, and in these cases it is better to negotiate the price
before getting into the vehicle.
