Ximena´s Guest House

Tours & Transport

At Ximena's we can help you organize your travels with the extensive network of collaborators we have in the field of transportation.

If you need a taxi to any destination in the country, the staff from the Taxi Coop "Radio Taxis Centroamérica" has a list of destinations with set fees so you do not need to haggle or worry about paying too much. When you need the service, the staff calls them on their radio and you get picked up at the hotel. As an extra safety precaution we keep a log over the taxi rides from the hotel. Here we register name of the guest, taxi unit, destination and time in case you should leave something behind in the unit. If you need a trip at night time (between 11 pm and 6 am) we advice you to pre-order the taxi with the staff to make sure you get one at the exact time you need it.
