Airport transfer or taxi for group of 6

Hello,

There are 6 of us looking for transportation from SJU to Tres Palmes Inn, the Tres Palmes Inn to the cruise port, and finally from the cruise port to SJU (after our cruise).

Does anyone know if it's more cost-effective and practical to take a taxi, or should we arrange for an airport transfer? If you recommend a taxi, are there taxi's that can hold a group of 6 people... or should we take separate taxis?

We will each have 1 checked bag and one carry-on each.

Thanks for your help!

A taxi or 2 taxis will be fine for each leg of the trip/

Taxis come in sedans and small vans. The sedans will not hold 6. The vans may. Some of the vans are larger. There is a dispatcher and hundreds of cabs waiting both ar SJU and the Cruise Port. If there is a larger van available you will be able to get it. Count on using 2 cabs from Las Palmes to the Cruise Port.

Taxis hold up to 7 passengers. Most taxis are vans, I have very rarely seen sedans. If you have too many bags they might separare you into 2 cabs. Do not worry, cabs are readily available.

Thank you for your help!

Do you know approximate cost of cab from the airport to the tres palms beach area, from the tres palms beach area to the cruise port, and from the cruise port to the airport?

We'd love to know how much to budget.

Thanks again, Susannah
