San Gervasio Ruins (2 Replies)
On my next trip, I might cut back a little on the diving or stay a little longer, and would love to go to the San Gervasio ruins, or the Tequila Museum. If I take a taxi, do I need to pay to him stay there while I go on the tour, or will there be another to take me back to town when I am done? Guess I would have the same question about El Cedral, like to get there too. Thanks for any advice!

The Tequila Factory usually have a taxi or two waiting and if they don't someone in the front or the restaruant will call one for you, Not too sure about San Gervasio or Cedral.
