There are a number of reasons to use a taxi service, instead of the provided shuttle, even though it does cost extra.
1) depends on where you are staying, it might be a bus or a large van taking all the people from that flight to their hotels. YOUR lugguage might get lost (ours did on the first trip - finally returned to us about 9 hours later).
2) The taxi will get to YOUR hotel well before the shuttle - this means YOU check in first, ahead of the crowds, and hopefully correct any reservation problems.
3) With Bully, you can reserve personal time to be driven around the island by a guy who knows the spots to visit. Should you decide to wander some of the back streets of San Nicolas, Bully is a great guy to have with you.
4) I would also suggest you reserve Bully to take you back to the airport, when it's time to go home. Aruba's airport is small, and can get congested - nice to be there earlier and at the front of the line to get checked in.
Enjoy your trip - it doesn't get any better than Aruba.
hi- can you give his name and email? sounds like I should contact him for our trip in Feb. Our package includes airport to hotel (tam) transfers - are they really a pain? should I just pay for a taxi? Thanks so much!
Roadstar, I think you meant TRVLJAN?? I booked him already but Trvljan was enquirying about the transfers, etc.
However, you gave very good information and you are correct in all of what you are saying.
