The rate from GDL to Chapala has been $400 for several years. The kiosk has always tried to put a $20 Gringo tax and I just smiled and gave $400. No problem.

Last night, I was told the rate was $415. I gave $400. I was told, "No. $415" I said I wanted a receipt but he never gave me one. I asked outside what the rate was to Chapala, asked the dispatcher, and was told $415.

Has it been officially upped Raised?

What has your experience been on taxi prices from the airport?

I have better things to do than fight for 13 pesos because of principle as well. I also do not assume that because I am a foreigner I pay what you call gringo price and if you do you can afford the 15 pesos anyways so move on.Do something useful with your time.

Because those drivers have to sit in line for gas for hours, I won’t begrudge an extra fee.  I don’t know if the official rate has gone up but possibly they do that annually and it’s January.  I have a soft spot for anyone dealing with the traveling public because of the number of a**holes they have to deal with.  I did it for 28 years.  Has the OFFICIAL taxi rate at the airport gone up? 851398

You seem to have so many principles I'm surprised that you can get anything done by yourself. ...Oh, right. Never mind.

We have paid $420 to Ajijic for quite a while. It is clearly shown on the map behind the desk in the taxi kiosk. If you don't get a receipt you can't get into a cab outside. A dispatcher outside assigns you to a cab, he uses your receipt to give to the driver so he gets paid and the driver gives you back your receipt when you get into the cab.

I personally wouldn't spend any time or energy worrying about $20 myself but I know others disagree. Some folks disagree strongly. I also tip the driver every time and with gas going up, waiting in lines for gas, occasional wrecks on the highway coming from or going back to the airport I think a nice tip is an appropriate show of appreciation. But probably even more people disagree with my thoughts on tipping.

Came in this past Saturday night and paid $435 to Ajijic. That was also the price on the receipt. Have paid $420 in the past (also the price on the receipt) and frankly, am surprised the rate hasn’t gone higher with the current gas situation. Nice big tip added.
