Yet another taxi question

Could someone tell me what the taxi fare is from the cruise ship dock to the Miraflores Locks? From Miraflores Locks to Casco Vieja? From Casco Vieja back to the cruise ship? Are taxis usually readily available at these locations?

I've downloaded the fare table from the link posted on another thread but since I'm unfamiliar with Panama City and its environs at this point, I'm not sure how to read it....just naive, not stupid :)

Gracias, vai

Do ask the fee prior to getting in a taxi......

Also, have small bills, many cabbies will tell you they don't have change for even a ten dollar bill.

The actual fare from Amador dock to Miraflores is really $3.80 for two people; (crossing three zones to "Sector D - Clayton"). Even at tourist rates, don't pay more than $10 to go from Amador to Miralfores. If the driver wants more either counter-offer $10, walk to the next cab or walk a couple of blocks to get a cheaper taxi.
