Are Taxi's Still Safe Transport on Cozumel?

Recommended Posts

Haven't been for about 5 years.

We are just looking to go from the Carnival Freedom to Paradise Beach and back.

Thanks!

Safer than renting a car or scooter or motorcycle. In places safer than walking.

 

Only options I know that have safer records are Bar Hop Bus and Tours Plaza, where you can hire your driver for the day. But these make since only if going to several places and having a distance to travel, especially to east side where return taxis are few and far between.

Taxis are safe and fairly well regulated (especially compared to the crooks in Philly! :mad: ) - fares will be posted on a board near the cab line (should be about $17 each way for up to 4 passengers sharing the cab). If you see the first cab has knotted or cut seat belts feel free to walk to the next cab in line that is properly maintained.

Har Har, don't get me started on my cab ride from Philly International to downtown. I was choking on the meter $ before even getting on the expressway. Only grabbed a taxi because I couldn't raise Uber via Philly airport wifi and forgot to bring my own myfi.

Yes...the taxis in Cozumel are safe and the fares are regulated. I would not hesitate to take one.

What aspect of getting a taxi are you concerned about?

Yep, a few weeks ago my daughter and I took a cab from the pier to Paradise Beach and back. Not one moment of concern or ever a feeling of being unsafe.

These people who drive taxis in Cozumel, that is their career. They don't want people to feel like Cozumel is dangerous, otherwise that hurts their livelihood.
