As I said, I cannot say that what you have described never happens, only that in dozens of transits through the CZM airport I have never seen or heard of it except for from what you have said. I am neutral regarding the taxi union; I know how to avoid running afoul of the way they run their business, and vacation time is far too precious to me to waste it in pointless confrontations or arguments over trivial amounts of money.What’s with the sympathy with the taxi Union? Friends of yours? Do you need video of the guy refusing the ride without more money? Do you have Stockholm syndrome and empathize and sympathize with your captor? Both of us will sign written sworn statements that our shuttle tickets bought at the airport from one of the two monopolies were not honored and the choice given was pay a lot more then was agreed to or walk. So money was refunded, we walked 100 yards and got a “normal” priced taxi. Also, no where else is a cab charged per person . It’s always the same price for the whole cab.
SB is indeed moderated to keep exchanges civil and on topic. I always appreciate the volunteer work of the Mods, even on my posts, while complaining about their work can only make it worse and yourself look silly.Interesting, the moderator censored one of my replies to my own thread. So much for the free open exchange of ideas and information. Complaining is banned on scuba board.
No, he said the Op might have lied - in this case, Op referring to the Operator, not the Original Poster.You are lying by claiming I’m lying. I have the pdf invoices by email listing tax. And the email complaining that other companies don’t explicitly state they are taxing. Which they aren’t if you pay cash.
I'm still wondering how you came to be the only couple at the airport needing a shuttle? They pack those vans with people going to different places.No what I expect is a verbal and witten agreement in a receipt to be kept and not to be shaken down and extorted by a criminal airport monopoly after buying tickets . “My country my rules” is the motto of a thief. If you want to be blackmailed and pay $25 for a ten minute ride that would cost $5 elsewhere in Mexico, feel free. You’re welcome .
FWIW, once you start a thread by posting something it's not really yours any more. Rules of civility and staying on (or close to) topic apply to you as well as to everyone else.Interesting, the moderator censored one of my replies to my own thread.

Blue H20 invoices show the tax that is included in price.
Looking at the Blue H2O website, a 2 tank dive is $75 - what I know for sure, because it is written, is that the marine park fee, tanks, weights, and snacks are included. What a potential customer doesn't know is if tax is included, because nowhere on the site does it state that it is or isn't included.
Our prices include all tax and it is stated on home page. When you receive your invoice it shows the iva that is included in the price. We dont do bait and switch.for myself, in this case, i would assume the tax is included. if i showed up and they tried to charge me 16% on top, i would tell them to take flying leap. then i would show them their own web site that does not indicate any extra charges.
bottom line is that there is no excuse for this. it is very simple to either say....."these prices include x, y, and z"...... or " x,y, and z are extra".
