Taxi from Tambor to Santa Teresa/ reserve b4 hand??

Hello there experts. We land on Dec 24th in Tambor around 2:45pm. Should we reserve a cab beforehand? Or are there always cabs there?

Also, we are a family of four, 2 adults, 2 young teens. I saw a price of $40 for this, sound right?

Lastly, is a return trip normally less? Thought I read you could catch a local cab from Santa Teresa to Tambor for $25? I could be dreaming though...

Thanx!

Reserve a cab beforehand. What on earth will you do if you arrive at this isolated airstrip and there are no available taxis? I've seen taxis waiting but there's no guarantee. $40 sounds like a good deal. I'd expect it to be a little more. Why not just ask your lodging in Santa Teresa to arrange a taxi for you?

I just arrived home from Santa Teresa. The standard taxi rate seemed to be $45.00 to and from tambor airport and Santa Teresa. There were about 3 taxis there waiting. But who knows if those were already pre-arranged. Best to reserve one. That airport is basically a what looks like a bus stop with a scale, pay phone, vending machine, and a landing strip.
