Lagos is a town in southern Portugal's Algarve region. It’s known for its walled old town, cliffs, and Atlantic beaches. Steep wooden steps lead to the sandy cove of Praia do Camilo. The nearby cliffs of Ponta de Piedade offer sweeping headland views and a lighthouse. Igreja de Santo António, an ornate 18th-century church, sits across from the Castelo dos Governadores, a castle with a baroque facade and watchtowers. Because I don't know my way around and the streets are narrow and poorly lit I take a taxi at night. Taxis here have an interesting pricing system. It's 80 cents for them to come to you. Unless you have a parcel. Then it's €1. 20. There is a flat charge of €3 25 for any distance up to 3 km. But after 9 pm and on weekends and holidays it's more. So going to the grocery store it was .80 pu but leaving the grocery store with one small bag pu was €1.20 . The cabs are very clean and modern and all no smoking. Cab drivers all speak English. Some better than others. Another interesting thing here is that tipping is very minimal. 5% or less and is not really expected. Everyone is very particular about giving change to the last cent whereas in many places a big fuss is made about coin change and often you are lucky if you actually get it.
