Taxi Info

Is it possible to hire drivers by the day as opposed to by trip? We would like to spend at least one day driving along the coast to Ensenada with a return to Rosarito. We also would like to have dinner in Puerto Nuevo. (We're staying in San Antonio del Mar.) What should we expect to pay? Also, would love to hear your restaurant recommendations. We will be in Rosarito for 6 days starting tomorrow. Thanks so much.

Have you considered renting a car? It's a lovely drive. You might either ask a driver what he would charge for an entire day or check the Mexicoach website. They do go from Rosarito to Ensenada and back.

Pstreet has the restaurant listings and she is out of the country. We love to eat at Chabert's, which is at the Rosarito Beach Hotel. No, this isn't Puerto Nuevo. There is one large, ocean front restaurant in Puerto Nuevo, lovely setting and ordinary food. We go because the children in the family love the view and the mariachis. Our last few dining experiences in Puerto Nuevo have been less than wonderful. Chabert's has an elegant, old world feel and excellent food. The lobster isn't dried out, either.

Actually, I'm back after a great month in Europe. :)

There are many, many better spots to eat than Puerto Neuvo, in my opinion, but I'll include a few recomendations for there too. Contact me privately and I'll email the list to you; it's extensive.

Thanks for your replies. (Will email PStreet for restaurant info. Thx) We will actually have two cars but each driver is placing restrictions on the use of the vehicles, etc, etc. We thought we would just spend the better part of a day cruising (by car) to Ensenada. Perhaps we'll try a little harder to elicit their support for that trip.

Thanks again.

1st mile $4 dls

San Isidro Border $20 dls

Puerto Neuvo $15 dls

Bada Bing$7 dls

Ensenada $70dls

They also make trips to La Bufadora, Mexicali, San Felipe, etc.
