I assume that the taxi ride from Calica to PDC is relatively safe since it seems that a lot of people do it. I see that the cost is approx. $26. Now I have a stupid question -what area of PDC to you have the taxi take you to? Is there a specific road or area that you should request. I am leaning towards doing this I think. Our other thought is doing either the Playa del Carment Beach & Shopping Excursion which is $60 or Calica Beach Break for $100. Any thoughts or experience on this. TIA : )
Was in Calica/Playa del Carmen three weeks ago.
A taxi from Calica to PdC is $13 (one way) for up to 4 people (1 in front with driver and 3 in back seat) . Don't know how many in your party. If only two, ask two others waiting in line if they want to share the cost.
Yes, the taxi ride is safe.
When you ask to be taken into PdC, you will be dropped off curbside at the edge of the shopping area. There is, also, a beach in PdC that you can walk to. So pack up your swim gear and take it with you.
When ready to return to the ship, go back to drop-off area for a taxi. Most of the drivers speak Engish. Just tell your driver the Calica port. Once again fare will be $13.
Check the thread just above this for add'l info: Taxi Price....and best beach area
