    We've planned a sunset cruise for our dinner guests. Luckily, there are only 12 or 13 people that are going.

    With the taxi union strike, is there a way to get everyone from Dreams to the harbor (and back) other than by taxi?

            Light at the end of the tunnel.

            Apparently a truce has been arranged and the talks are pointing in the right direction, government and transport unions have been talking for the past few weeks trying to find a solution, hopefully soon the problem will be over. Today I saw on the streets again some private transport running. Let's all hope for the best.

              We just got back. We also did a cruise from the harbor and all our guests were staying at the hilton. They use very big taxis down there. We had 37 people and we just took 4 big taxis. They charged $5 per person from the Hilton which is fairly far. I didn't think it was unreasonable.

              On the way bag I just found some taxis. They asked $6 per person and I said $5. They quickly accepted.

              Another time when we went to Cabo we had 8 people in a really big van. He wanted $5 per person. I knew we could squeeze the other 4 in but I said why crowd when we can just get another cab since we are paying per person. The driver quickly dropped the price by another dollar per person.
