Taxi’s US $

Recommended Posts

Yes, the fares to popular tourist spots will be posted on a board near the taxi line for your pier.  It  never hurts to confirm the fare with the driver before you get into the cab.  There are 3 piers for cruise ships on Cozumel - be sure that you return to the correct one. It can be a challenge after too many margaritas. :classic_rolleyes:

I hope this helps. This is from November 2018:

 

Note: we went to The Boatyard in Carlisle Bay and while it says on the board $4, we were charged $5 on previous trips (and the board was the same). On this November trip, we just walked to the Boatyard.

My advice on taxis taking U$ Dollars was accurate, but ignore the comments about multiple piers on Cozumel.

I truly dislike the taxi service and taxi drivers in Baebados. They pretend to charge you what ever the heck they want, even with posted and set fees. They usually have attitudes, and some are very unwelcoming. At least that's our experience. That's why we walked to The Boatyard last time we were in Barbados and will do it again next time, unless we pre-book a tour to another place on the island. We took a taxi on our way back from Boatyard because it was included with the entry fee and those drivers have always been nice. The "morning guys" at the terminal seem to be the real problem.

I live on the island -and I agree with your assessment!

They are sharks, but I've always said that.

Now and again you'll find a tame one, but be careful...

My family would like to see North Point/Animal Flower Caves. I see that there is actually a posted rate (from last year) of $30.50 USD.

 

Are taxis generally available/waiting there, for when people want to leave? I don't want to get there, see the sights, and get stuck with no way back. Does anyone know if the restaurant can call for a taxi if there aren't any waiting? Or am I better off hiring a taxi to wait around and give us a lift back?

 

It looks like there is also a bus that is supposed to run hourly to Connell Town (1C) from the Princess Alice Terminal, but I've no idea how reliable the bus service is. Is anyone able to comment on the bus service?

 

Thank you for any information or advice 🙂

Animal Flower Cave is at the end of the Earth.

Just before you fall off the edge, into deep outer space.

 

There will be nooo taxis hanging around up there, waiting for business.
When you're up there, you're UP THERE!!  It's remote!

 

Suggest you have your taxi wait for you ($$$) until you are ready to leave.

Suggest you invite him in for a drink at the bar or whatever

These are the one way fares.  Boatyard includes the ride back to the port in your admission. If you choose another beach club there will be cabs waiting, or they can call one for you. More than likely the driver who drops you off will make arrangements to pick you up for the return trip.
