You can hail cabs on the street or call for one. Licensed cabs are red with a gold triangle on the front doors. Taxis Unidos Aeropuerto—which go to the airport—are orange. A 3-km (2-mile) ride costs around $3; tipping isn't customary. By law cabbies must use marías (meters) within the metropolitan area. (The meter starts at $1.20.) Cab drivers hate it if you slam the door; close the door gently.
