airport transfers for Iberostar Ensenachos?

Hi

I'm travelling to Iberostar Ensenachos next week and we didn't get airport transfers. Can anyone tell me how easy is it to find a cab to get my family and I to the hotel from the airport? Is it safe to do this? And what is a reasonable fair to offer a driver?

Would it be better to ask our hotel to help us book someone or just try and wing it?

Any advice would be welcome! Thanks!

Did you book hotel only or part of package?

Well you could try negotiating with the bus driver that is sure to be there to pick up incoming tourists. I am sure it will cost less than a taxi.

The transfer costs for each of us to take the bus was $120 each - so total $460 CND. It surely couldn't cost that much for a cab.

My worry is the bus may be full.

Any advice on how much I should offer the bus driver or a cab driver? In convertible pesos?

Thanks for your help with this!

I agree with ddcuba.

We had same situation. Our flight was with Air Canada and we asked Air Canada bus driver to give us a ride to our hotel. It was 5 of us and we got ride.It was 10 Cuban Pesos per person.

“My worry is the bus may be full.”

********

STOP worrying ... you are going on vacation. For heaven's sake listen to ddcuba & Crotia95, and negotiate with a bus driver when you are there. Paying $460. in advance is larceny.

Perhaps one of the knowledgeable DEs for Ants ‘n Nachos will be along soon to confirm that.

Not an expert but just came back - we had a small bus for 20 going only to Ensenachos - the other buses were going to other resorts. Our bus was full. Didn't see a single taxi outside the Santa Clara airport when we arrived. Tour rep told us on the bus that a cab would be roughly $60 CUC from the airport to Ensenachos.

" Some " resorts will arrange transfers for you IF you book resort only. What airline are you flying ? That may also make a difference.

Hola

cost for a taxi is 65 cuc plus tip. one way. The bus if they have room will be 15 dollars to the head guy and say a couple for the driver....have done both.

cheers....only problem is how much luggage you have if your a family of 4...perhaps no room in the taxi..

cheers.

Thanks for all the advice, everyone! Really appreciated! I am much more at ease now and will go for negotiating a ride with the bus driver.
