Palmas Del Mar promotes the type of environment in which guests shouldn't have to lift a finger. This includes driving themselves from one place to the next. Resorts will often arrange excursions to popular attractions, and shuttles to shopping and dining locations, but when this isn't possible they are happy to call a taxi to pick you up right from the lobby.
The taxis in Palmas Del Mar are easy to pick out in a crowd. They are almost always white, and while the company logo may be printed on the side of the vehicle, the words "Taxi Turistico" will most certainly be located on the front. You'll typically see these vehicles driving around with purpose, so it may be hard to flag someone down. This is why most people let their resort call a taxi for them. You can also call yourself, using one of the numbers listed below.

...you may come out ahead...
Because Palmas Del Mar is a high end area, you may expect taxis to be on the pricey side. This is not the case at all. If the meter is running, you'll pay a base price of $1(USD) and an additional $0.10(USD) per one-third mile driven. If you don't like the idea of relying on a meter, you can also ask your driver if they will accept a certain set amount. Here a small negotiation may be necessary, but you may come out ahead in the end. Also be prepared to tip your driver for their time; about 10 to 15 percent is the norm.
