All cabs have meters that count fichas, or pulses, each 1/10 km (1/20 mile). When you arrive at your destination, the driver will take out an official chart that calculates the fare from the number of fichas elapsed. You can hail taxis on the street with ease, or call one to pick you up at your hotel. A ride to the airport from the Old City costs about 500 pesos.
