Hi. Im going from IGU to Cataratas resort. Is 88real a fair price?
There are many hotels with the name "Cataratas" within their name. Which Resort?
$R88 is too much for a taxi to hotels in Foz. It will be fair if going to the AR Falls.
Little more information and I can help.
Hi Marty. My hotel is Recanto Cataratas - Thermas, Resort e Convention
Got it. Nice hotel and close to a Mall. One of the farthest from the Falls and airport. $88 reals is a good range.
We also grab a private transportation when we travel longer than a couple days and they charge $80 reals one way plus I tip from airport to the house which is near your resort.
MW. I just discovered a Brazilian uber type operation called 99 I suggest you check it out!
I must be searching incorrectly. Do you have the link? I can go meet them and check out operations.
You download the 99 taxis and drivers app from the Play Store. it's basically just like uber.
I get conflicting information as to having this service in Foz. Foz local government has denied Uber. I have read that Uber was trying to have some type of partnership for other cities than Rio, SP, Curitiba and and others. I will search apps on phone
We just went thru a big issue as to BR taxis being able to have fares from AR back to BR and Ar having fare back into AR. When these protest come many take to the 2 lane bridge crossing the AR-BR border. It reall slows done traffic. Now those who join a "Turismo" group has to pay an annual fee to have open access. Many smaller tour and taxi companies have opted out and pay as they go.
Local TV has done a piece on Uber in Falls and say the city oppose such due to the local bus service would be affected. Strange to me due to locals cannot afford daily costs for a uber type transportation everyday and most tourist only have a few days here and buses take time. Yes very less expensive, but time is money also.
Let you know what I find.
Ok. What it does here in Foz is hail a taxi and suppose to be 30% off.
Being local we always try to get a set rate for taxis to and from home to airport (parking rate is high at airport).
The 2 majors Sindtaxi and CooperTaxi may not be members.
