one thing to distinguish the taxis here in tijuana and rosarito area from the ensenada area is that the taxis here in Tjuana comes into 2 kinds, the taxi libre (mostly white with a big, red stripe and "Taxi Libre" written on the door. These taxis have meters and cost about half of what the yellow ones do. The downside is that the drivers speak less English. If you don't speak Spanish and are going somewhere other than the standard destinations, you'll have better luck if you bring a map or written address with you. To avoid any trouble, check to be sure the driver starts the meter when he takes off) which are cheap since shared rides with strangers up to 4 is allowed. The other kind is the yellow taxis ( taxis do not have meters. Negotiate your price before you get in. They's the more expensive type of taxi here, but most drivers speak some English) and no flag down rate since there is no fare meters!

an example of a taxi company is Tele Taxis de Tijuana A.C.
