Transportation to site: Taxi transportation is available at the international airport in Quito. Participants who wish to hire a taxi can do so at the Airport Taxi Services booth located after clearing Customs. Please stop at the booth and tell the representative that you need a taxi to take you to your hotel (give the hotel name) in Quito. The representative will give you a ticket that notes your destination and fare. From there, you will exit the airport and look for a taxi service representative, wearing an official airport badge, who will direct you to the next available taxi. The driver will assist you with your luggage, collect your ticket, and take you to your hotel. The taxis are not metered; the fare is a set rate, calculated based on your final destination. Payment to the driver must be made in US dollars, cash, and tipping is optional. The new Mariscal Sucre International Airport is located approximately one hour from downtown Quito.
