Bucuti......within walking distance of nightlife?

Husband and Wife looking at 8 - 9 nights at Bucuti. Is it within walking distance of some good nightlife, excluding Casino's? Is it a safe walk and when I say walking distance I mean 1-2 miles otherwise we could always taxi it.

Thanks!

Walkable to one casino and a handful of restaurants but not any real "nightlife". You'll need to go downtown or to the Palm Beach area for nightlife - no easy way to walk to either but you can take the bus (safe and cheap) or a taxi and it will take you about 10-15 minutes to get to either area.

We stayed at the Costa Linda, which is right next door to the Bucuti, taxi to the high rise area, is 9 dollars,, you could walk, probably a bit more than 2 miles, but everywhere we went was a safe walk... Downtown is about a 45 minute walk,,not sure of the taxi price there.. Enjoy!!

We always rent a car prices are not bad. Better then paying taxi fare, we always use Tropic about 160 for a week. Driving on the Island is very easy, small Island, lol. We love Bucuti have been going for the last 5 years it is worth the drive to the High Rise but we very rarely want to leave.

I agree with tomsharon about rarely wanting to leave. That's why we love staying at Bucuti, to get away from the high-rise places and crowds. Been to the Sunspree, we learned. You get what you pay for.
