Just Curious ...

Went out for a late dinner last night & headed back to the hotel just past 11. Not too many buses at that time (which I already know) ... about a 10-minute wait; but then the driver told me it was 10 pesos each at that time (for a disco bus). True? Or was he just conning a few extra pesos out of a couple of gringos. Never heard of that. I let him know but paid it anyway. No big deal.

I vote con. Last year I got the same driver several times. He always charged me more than the fare.

Ron we were just on the bus with you at around 11pm and all 4 of us were charged 8 pesos. You were conned out of 4 pesos, there goes your allowance for your last day in Aca.

Ron, same thing when we were there in January. First night I took my hubby out late. Had my 16 pesos ready and handed it to the driver, he said 10 each. I said what?? but paid it.

An old guy got on a few stops later and the driver also told him 10. The guy said no and just paid 8, he didn't look like he could afford the extra. Think everyone was paying 10. I love those disco buses.

Many taxis and now buses are trying to pull the "after 11 p.m." fare increase. Consider it another Acapulco tax.
