    Getting from airport to Palm Beach Hotel

    Hi,

    What is the best way to get from the airport to Palm Beach? We are staying at Divi Phoenix. Do you recommend reserving a shuttle or just getting a taxi at the airport? Any idea of price for a taxi?

    4 days and counting!

    $31 not including tip or surcharges for extra luggage or late night or holiday

    taxi is the way to go (IMO)

    Taxi.... quickest and cost efficient and readily available. That's my take!
    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men!

    Yup, Taxi for sure. Rates are 'set' so no matter the taxi from airport prices are the same. (True about taxi to and from anywhere on island...just as stated above, there is extra surcharge for after midnight and Sundays, holidays etc) There are plenty of taxis available at airport and it is an orderly process. Enjoy yo ur trip!

    Another "yes" for taxi. The prices Andrea sent you are good through 2022. When you come out of the airport, turn to the left. You'll see the taxi stand (and probably a line but it moves very quickly). The "attendant" will ask you where you are going and give you a stub with the fare written on it. Quick and easy and I've found without exception the drivers to be great (and happy to give recommendation and info!). Have a wonderful time and let us know what you're up to if you have time!

    We've never done the shuttle because it will make multiple stops and might have an airport/hotel wait until others arrive. If not renting a car, do the taxi. We've met some wonderful Aruban taxi drivers over the years and many can give you advice, for you to take or leave, about where to dine, what to do, local happenings that you might be interested in or just general life chat stuff. Depending on who you get, you can continue the conversation or give polite but short answers to stop the conversation--just like a taxi at home. Have a wonderful trip!
