A local could ride from the airport area to Mega for 30 pesos. The reason they charge more when you walk off the airport is that the people controlling the airport give them hell for picking up people outside the airport. So you will pay a little more but I would offer 7usd and that should make everyone happy, then you can take another cab from Mega to you hotel and that should be on the list that all taxis have with them just ask to see the official rates if it sounds to high.

That's how I would do it. Better dragging the bags into the AC'd Mega and up the moving sidewalk where they can be safely checked while you shop than lugging them out to the road and waiting for a cab to come along. Because, for one thing, you have to go further away from the airport now. So we're talking two blocks out to the road and at least another block up 65 or down Airport Blvd before a cab will stop for you.
I would use the Mega rather than the Sedena as your selection will be vastly improved at the much, much larger store.

I *always* asked the fare first - "$3 for Mega, that ok?" If they agree or negotiate you work it out and *then* you get in the cab. I'd never hop in one without first knowing what I was going to pay at the end.
And the island ain't that big! You can always keep walking until the next cab comes.
