It should only be around 200j ($2usd) each way. 100j from the beach to downtown and then another 100j from downtown to the cliffs.

Look toward the bottom of this article for instructions.

Route taxis have gone up in price. It's pretty much $150j pp each leg now. They are not private and it's an excursion in itself the first few times after you read up on it and if you feel comfortable doing it. It's the closest thing to a local bus service there is and locals use it to get around (and you should defer to them if it's busy). It's priced per person, so if there's two of you going, it's pretty close to the same as negotiating with a charter red-plate taxi. Taxis that are offered by hotels are more often going to ask more, so you need to negotiate with them. Best to have the number of a couple of licensed taxi drivers who have been recommended and are reasonably priced. I have the name and number of a good one that I used in November if interested.

As a tourist, I round up to $150 because I have $100 and $50 bills and you don't expect/get change, plus it's good to give them that little bit extra, or more if inclined.
