    buses?

    hi everyone- we are officially 1 week from Aruba Although we are staying at the Divi AI, we've made reservations at a couple of restaurants. I'm curious if there is a bus we can hope on that will take us from the Divi to El Goucho and Flying Fishbone. What would a taxi cost vs a bus?

    Thanks!!!

    here is the taxi site.
    choose LO rise hotel along the top and the destination on the left side

    EX: Lo rise (divi ai) to el gaucho $10 not including tip additional surcharge on holidays and sunday.

    $2.30 is much more reasonable than the $30 cab each way! I think we'll opt for the bus

    very frequent buses. and the best pricing in town! ;-)
    unfortunately the buses do not go to a few of the real popular restaurants.

    We mostly take a taxi when we would go out for dinner.Other times we just take the buses too.cheaper and you get to meet people from all around the island and world.

    I think we may take a bus into town and then catch a can to flying fishbone- if there is no bus that will take us within walking distance. $60(round trip) cab ride plus dinner is a little steep for me.

    rent a car for a day or two and drive there. that would be the cost of the taxi ride! then you could drive around and see the island. but if you drive on the other side make sure you have a 4 wheel drive!
