Taxis: are abundant and relatively cheap. Rates vary depending on the line. Check the front windshield for minimum rates. Make sure the driver uses the “taximetro” when you get in or you will be overcharged. If they tell you it is out of order, be wary. Taxi metros are the law and it is unlikely that it is broken. Tipping is not customary.
