This is just an excerpt from another page on our site (Bus Routes and Taxis) but it’s information that’s very important to know if you’re new to the city and need to find a dependable, honest, safe taxi to get you to where you need to be:
- Guillermo (Mimo) – +52 1 999 263 3000 I like Guillermo as do everyone who has the pleasure of riding with him. He’s very intelligent, very conversant, speaks English fluently, and can tell you anything about the city that you want to know including the locations of hospitals, atms, the best mercados (markets), malls, or any location that you’re interested in! He goes way out of his way to help his passengers, and once you’ve had him as a driver, you’ll have him on speed dial for the duration of your trip. If you need to be somewhere, give him a call or text him thru Whatsapp (same number.)
- Ernesto – +52 1 999 334 3904 Ernesto is another really awesome driver! He’s fair, very honest, speaks English, and knows where everything is in the city! He will help you in any way that he can and always has a smile on his face! He, too, will go out of his way to help you. So this is another driver that you might want to consider keeping on speed-dial.
- The alternative that many prefer, if you can’t reach one of our suggested drivers, is to just download Uber onto your smartphone! It’s a lot less expensive that other taxis, you have a pick-up point and destination point plotted out on a google map, the app tells you how long you will have to wait for a pick-up, what type of car it will be, the driver’s name, and the approximate fare! How simple is that? (You can download Uber from GooglePlay! It’s free!)
As you can see, our site is beginning to take shape but it will be a lot better if you send us suggestions on what you want to see, features that you would be interested in, or perhaps you would like to share your own pics and experiences! We’re open to suggestions because we want this site to be a place that you can come to for news, general information, a little history, or just plain fun! We’re getting ready to start promoting local businesses and artists, parks, places to go and things to do and see… and we hope that you will check out our recommendations and promotions because they generally are NOT paid sponsors! These are places and people that our readers, friends, and the citizens of the area have suggested.
If you’re new to the area (or even if you aren’t) check out the list that we’ve already established… you might find information there that you weren’t aware of, and that’s ok because that’s what we’re here for: to take a new look at an old and grand city!
So join us, leave comments, suggestions, ask questions on the form to the right… we’ll get back with you as quickly as possible!
