Taxi Mafia Worse Than DC

This would be a taxi in Old San Juan, the capitol of Puerto Rico. Guess how much it is for a ride around their “Zone 1″?

$10. And then it jumps up by $5 at the mystery “zone” lines like in DC.

Its pretty much at least $20 for a Old San Juan to anywhere local trip each way.

The only bonus? Like in DC, longer rides are somewhat cheaper. Across the island is $80 which you can share with as many people that can fit into the van.
