Taxi question

I know the taxi's from airport to hotel take only 3 people and luggage, we are 4 so will take a van. But what about to get around town will the taxi's take 4 of us?

Some may, especially if they are hungry.

Lots of room in the busses.

JRINPV,

Do the busses run all night, or do they stop at a certain time?

Thanks, ok sorry I have another question, I know to get a taxi at the airport you go to the two booths marked "TAXI" near the exit of the airport, what about to get a van for 4 people, do you still go to those booths or do you just step outside, and find one. Thanks

You can get a van by the taxi booths, or take a sharp right as soon as you are out of the customs and timeshare area and go to the first exit on the left. That is where the vans are parked and you can get a voucher right there as well. Either way is the same price.

Also remember, there is an approximate $10us surcharge for airport departures for taxis and vans.

When we arrived at the airport --of course everyone was trying to get our business, so we were trying to find the best deal. They were all quoting us anywhere from $25-30 US dollars to go from the airport to the Maririott (a 5 min. ride). Our family of 4 --2 adults and 2 teens all fit in a cab with 6 pcs of luggage in the trunk and 4 carryons inside of the cab. He gave us a price of $20.00 and we took it. We gave him a $10.00 tip because he helped us with all our luggage and was very friendly. He also showed us some fun places to go to along the way to the hotel. ---He shared alot of info with us, which helped us alot. It was a yellow taxi. On the way back to the airport from the Marriott the price was $4.00 US and we all fit into a yellow taxi again.

Pat: Unfortunately, with four people, plus luggage, you have to take a Van of some sort. Yellow taxis really aren't an option for you. Just go to a booth and buy your ticket.
