    Taxi from Airport

    Are there taxi's big enough to accommodate 3 adults & 2 children (plus baggage) from the airport to hotel?? I'm trying to decide if I should pre-arrange my transfers with one of the busses, but if there are bigger cabs I'd prefer to just get a cab...since that would be cheaper. Thanks!

    check out these tagged threads re: taxis

    bully has a large van and can accommodate your "group" bullytaxi79@hotmail.com

    also too, his brother in law has a large vehicle
    his brother in law is Hubert.

    If Bully is bsy he can hook you up with his brother in law.

    Another forum member Cyrilo Croes has a larger vehicle and might be able accommodate your party if he has time from his very busy tour schedule.

    After reading all these great things about Bully, I decided to email him and see if he was available to pick us up at the airport during our June trip. Within 10 minutes of my email, he had responded and confirmed he will be waiting for us when we arrive! Although I've not met him yet, he seems like a very genuine guy! I love this site! I'm amazed at how many new things I've learned from this site, even after 7-8 trips to Aruba.

    Airport Transportation to & from hotel

    Hi!

    Family of 6 traveling very soon to Aruba. Reading the forum...I see we can't all fit in one taxi. Is it better to grab 2 taxis or scheduling with a bus company like De Palm Tours?

    Thanks for any advice you can give me. We will be anxious to get to the hotel!

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum!

    6 of you using depalm r/t transfers is going to be about $30+ apiece

    a taxi, might run you $25 or less from airport to your resort and that is PER taxi, not per person.

    i will find you the taxi fare pdf and post it.

    NEW TAXI rates effective Sept 1 2009
    click above link. post #1 on the thread has the fare chart. click the link on that thread.
