Taxi Travel

Taxis are plentiful, especially outside of bus stations and in touristy neighborhoods. The taxi service Uber has caught on, though some people prefer to use the app SaferTaxi to ensure that there is a record of their journey. If taking a taxi, be prepared with small bills, as some drivers may not have change. Tipping is not required, but it is customary to round to the closest 500 or 1,000 pesos.
