Theme day: Taxis only

2 soldiers 1 cop and taxi sign

The taxi service in La Antigua Guatemala is anything but reliable. Taxi vehicles come in all colors and makes, mostly Toyota and Nissan. There is not a radio taxi service because all the taxis are owned by their respective drivers and they haven’t see fit to band together and offer a central calling number, so you have to carry three or four different business cards to make sure at least one taxi will be available when you need it. Besides the taxi automobiles, there are Tuk Tuk mototaxis (or tuc tuc in Brighton, England), but they have become unsafe for many reasons including delinquency; there is even Tuk Tuk Police Units now.

So, if you still want to see the taxis in Antigua, just click here. To look at different taxis from 45 Daily Photo Cities around the world just click the links below.

Have a great ride, but before you go, put on the song Historia de un Taxista (Tale of a taxi driver) by Ricardo Arjona, Guatemala’s most famous folk-pop-singer, as your soundtrack!

Warning: Due to time zone differences and other factors, taxis may not be available at your destination city as you arrive, but they will show up eventually on October 1st (What a reliable service that is!). If you view them after the date (also depends on the time zone) then you may probably find the taxi photo in the archives for October 1st.
