- Most tourists take taxis from the airport to the city.
- If you're going to take taxis, I recommend you take what they call authorized taxis.
- The good thing about authorized taxis is that the price is standardized unlike with metered taxis. Authorized taxi stalls are just near the entrance of both terminal 1 and 2. Once you purchase your ticket, your driver picks you right outside the terminal.
