Is it easy to catch a taxi in Speightstown?

We are staying on the south coast and do not plan to rent a car. We would enjoy visiting St. Nicholas Abbey, and would prefer to get there by taking the bus up to Speightstown and catching a taxi from there. Will it be easy to find a taxi when we get off the bus in Speightstown? Thanks!

You can actually get a Transport Board bus from Speightstown bus terminal which passes near St Nicholas Abbey if you wish (I think it is the bus which goes to Boscobelle). It is approximately a (slightly uphill) 20-minute walk from where you get off the bus (the driver will tell you where).

We did this a couple of years ago and would do it again.

Hope this helps.
