Taxi from La Restinga to Valverde

How much costs a taxi from La Restinga to Valverde? I'm not sure yet if I'll stay one night in Valverde or if I leave straightaway on ferry/airplane.

Thank you very much for helping.

Taxis generally run on a meter, but it's hard to get a fixed price, even from town to town.

I travelled by taxi twice from the ferry port in ValVerde to Tigaday (Frontera), and each time the cost was 30 euro. I imagine your trip would cost about the same, or maybe a little more.

I just got back from El Hierro. I was told that a taxi would be about 50 Euros. There is a bus you can take. I'm sure it would be much cheaper.

Thank you for the information. I cancelled my trip to El Hierro because of the uncertain ferry schedule. But I'd like to see El Hierro another time.

Hope, you had a good and safe trip.

There used to be a bus from La Restinga departing round

about 7.00 (or a little before) via El Pinar and timed to reach

Valverde by 09.00. Then one could choose to go down toward

the Airport or Estaca on the 12.00 departure but to either one

would need to walk the last part. This could work for the flight

early afternoon back to TFN.

With the prospect of a forty-fifty Euro fare from La Restinga

to Valverde, the economics would suggest that it would be

cheaper to pay 2.24 Euro on 'bus routes 8 and 2 (re-book

at El Pinar) - possibly staying one night in Valverde (for

about 40-50 Euros but offset by shorter stay in La Restinga).

Departures from La Restinga are at 06.40, 10.30, 14.05 and

16.30. With a change in Valverde, the 10.30 is in time for the

14.00 ferry on Monday/Wednesday/Friday (via route 7) or for

the afternoon flight (via route 6). The 06.40 is scheduled to

connect into route 6 in time for the morning flight but has

only a five-minute transfer window in Valverde.

These are examples of how the public transport is much

improved from the old days!
