The price your driver gives you for your journey will cover the first 4 passengers, any passenger over this will be given a surcharge. Be sure to ask and agree on the price of your journey prior to getting into the taxi, if you don’t like the price, you can find another taxi in the street to ask.

How to get a Cabo San Lucas taxi

Taxis in Cabo are easy to spot and there are thousands driving around the city. Cabo San Lucas taxis are not uniform in size or colour. You will need to look for one of the large van-like taxis, which always have the municipal stamp and the word ‘TAXI’ stamped on the door and back of the vehicle, or one of the smaller sedan taxis, which are white with a red stripe or blue with a white stripe. You can hail any of these taxis from the street or walk to one of the designated taxi ranks, also known as ‘sitios’. These taxi ranks can be found at the marina, outside Walmart, close to the main beaches, and outside the shopping malls.

Alternatively, if you’re travelling late at night or during the rainy season, it’s best to call one of the local taxi companies or book your ride in advance. To secure a transfer with a trusted Cabo taxi service, we recommend booking in advance with Welcome Pickups.
