Cabo Airport Taxi Scams
Cash Up Front
There is absolutely no reason to pay your Cabo Airport taxi driver before you get in the cab, so don't fall for this one if you would like to make it to your hotel in under an hour.
There are timeshare scams operating at SJD Airport that you should be aware of. Be suspicious of offers of free transportation from Cabo Airport as this is a lure to make you look at a timeshare.
Ignore the suggestion if your Cabo Airport taxi driver tells you that your hotel in Cabo (or elsewhere) is closed or is a poor choice. In this scam, it's an attempt by your driver to earn a commission by taking you somewhere else.
Ripoff Return Trip
Another cash grab to watch out for - NEVER pay for your return trip when you are dropped off at your hotel and ignore the comment that taxis are hard to find to go to the SJD Airport. There are a lot of taxis around town and you will have no problem getting to the airport for a lot cheaper than the cash now scam -- if the driver even shows up!
