Your taxi experience starts with a stop at one of the taxi kiosks that you will notice outside the exits from baggage claim, immigration, and customs services (but still within the airport). They are located at either end of Terminal 1. It is at one of these kiosks that you order your taxi ride. The prices are fixed. You provide the address or place (hotel, house, business, etc), and they charge you accordingly.
It is helpful to know the neighborhood (colonia) where your destination is located, and any major streets it is near. With this in mind, you may want to glance at Google or Bing Maps before taking your trip and jot this info down, then have it out and handy when you go to order your ride at the stand.
Upon paying (at last check prices were $330 MXN for a ride to the heart of the city), you will be given a printed receipt. Take this receipt with you as you go out to the sidewalk and find the line of waiting taxis. There should be an attendant to direct you to the first available taxi at the curb.
Keep in mind that you may need to clarify now with your driver the exact location of your destination – again, have the information on the colonia and any nearby major streets handy. Don’t expect the taxi drivers to have GPS units in their cars. If you, on the other hand, have a smartphone or tablet with international cell service, this may come in handy to help your driver get you to your destination if you’re going to a less common part of the city.
Taxi companies pay fees for the right to take you from the airport to the city. This means that you will be getting a ride in a taxi from a company that has been sanctioned to provide this service. Do not just hop in a random car that looks like it might be heading your way.
