Taxi Price - Couples Negril hotel to Rick's Cafe???

Hi there !

Does anyone know the Taxi fare price from Couples Negril Hotel to Rick's Café (single & return fare please) ???

We will be going in December 2013 and instead of doing a tour trip to Rick's which we did 3 years ago we want to go on our own and stay a bit longer at Rick's café and thought a taxi would be the best way of doing this.

Hope anyone can help

It depends on how well you can bargain. Aim for $US10 one way.

CN offers an excursion trip to Rick's for $15 (both ways). It leaves the resort at 4pm and leaves Rick's at 7pm a little after sunset.

Maybe just take the free shuttle there and taxi back when you are ready. If you take a taxi from CN walk out to the road to bargain. If the taxi comes into the Couples driveway you will definitely pay more.

I'm not aware of any free shuttle for Rick's (?). A private taxi fare should be $10 each way. The taxis stationed at CSA probably will charge more (like $15-20), but $10 is the usual rate for all the taxi's passing by on the road. If you don't have a trusted local driver, it's always nice to have one - to avoid the hassle of negotiating. We've used an excellent guy named Biggs for years. He's at 876-410-036. The CSA folks can call him (or whoever you'd like) to arrange a pickup. Just call 30-60 min in advance & your driver will be waiting for you. Many drivers will expect payment after they return you to your hotel, rather that be paid after each trip.

We always just call Rick's directly. They send a driver to pick you up at your resort and take you back. He gives you a card when you get to Rick's and when you're ready to leave you have him paged. It's so nice not to be on anyone's time schedule but your own. We've done this 3 times and never had to wait to go back to the resort. $20.00 per couple round trip.

Good info. Always be sure to agree on the price before entering any cab (if you care about the price, that is). :)
