Rental Car or Taxi service?

Hey everyone ill be staying at sonesta maho with two of my friends and i would like to know if its best (cheaper) to take a taxi or rent a car. I will be staying at maho for 6 days. Im 24 years old and i understand some rental companies dont rent to people below the age of 25 and that some charge additional. We have a budget of $300 USD but dont mind going a little above that if it will be better outcome than using a taxi. We will be out a lot during the night dont know if that will affect taxi fares aswell.

Taxi fares go way up at night. Renting is the way to go. I believe Alain Arnell at AAA will rent under 25. Depending on time of year, cost should be well within your budget.

¡do not rent a car in PARADISE car rental !!! . when I return the car , they put a charge , u$ 25ºº, because the car was dirty (with sand on the floor), I travel by 50 countries and NEVER had that problem and pay for . The real problem was the treated about me , with people behind the desk that yelled to me . I be afraid that to contrive falsely another charge . I made the complaint to the COPA AIR , because they suggested that terrible company

Be careful about getting held up when you return car. Some rental agencies will tell that full coverage is not available then want to charge you $$$ when you return car. Renter beware!
