Nightlife/taxi question

Hi,

I'll be arriving in cabo tomorrow and wanted to go into town to go to bars and clubs one night..I was wondering how the taxis work. After leaving a bar is it safe to get into a cab off the street or should I call for one? How can you tell official cabs from other vehicles? I know when going out I can ask my gorwk to call me one, I'm more concerned about returning, especially since it will be later ar night.

Thanks!

The cabs are fine, large vans. Just know ahead what the fare is as they might try to overcharge drinking gringos. Should be about ten US to VDP.

Do they say "taxi" or something somewhere on the vehicle?

They are bright colorful maxivans, tho' there are some minivans or other large vehicles. The ones in Cabo tend to be blue, green, or red. Here are some images:

They do say "taxi" on them. You'll see them everywhere!

They will mostly be blue or green vans lined up all over town. Just hop in the one at the front of the line. There are no meters so make sure to agree on a price before you get moving. Should be $8-10 from town to your resort.
