Ride to Airport for 5AM Flight

Recommended Posts

I have a 5AM flight out of Guadalajara on Friday March 16. Can anyone recommend a very dependable and reliable and trustworthy professional driver with plenty of experience and recommendations? Thanks.

For all the singing praises in exalt of Luis Miramontes,  booked well in advance, he forgot all about me - and I live in his Chapala neighbourhood!!! Goes without saying, never again for the stress.

I find that's typical. Booking in advance means re-booking when it gets closer... not just for taxis, but practically everything. It's as if "you didn't call again as it got close, so you obviously don't care".

Luis told us during this busy season he appreciates 4 or 5 days notice.   I have always contacted him via email and yes, I always shoot him an email the day before to confirm.

There is one more Miramontes - Paco at 331 303 4298.  We communicate with him via Whatsapp and always reconfirm bookings.  He provides great service.

We have always used Miramontes but these days for early morning departures, I get really nervous waiting for a taxi at 3:30 am and for trips of 8 days or less, I would just as prefer driving and parking on the mirador of the airport parking garage at $119p per 24 hr period.

Miramontes let me down once. Called him and arrived within 10minutes.

I confirm the evening before now.

Alex peterson another good option.do a search for his number.

Thanks all for the responses.

I've used Alex Peterson before and had emailed him before I posted here. He replied this morning that he was too busy but was going to check for a backup driver. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

I've heard about the Miramontes but haven't used them. Sounds like Luis may be the most reliable. I'd drive and park at the airport, but we can't take our car away from Lakeside.

Of course Alex's main work centres on his trips to the U.S. and back. I don't know how he can squeeze in anything else.

It sounds like he will be doing it again, just has to redesign his system.
