Taxis on the island can be found in the villages. They are mostly Toyota Hilux with a flatback with benches. 3 persons can sit inside the car. Bring a raincoat just in case.
We use Mr Bear who is a very reliable taxi driver and speaks good English. He (or one his friends) is the one that will pick you up at arrival and drop you off at departure from the villa. It´s also possible to hire him for some hours or a whole day.
Please note that taxis are more expensive on the islands than on the mainland. Always agree on the price before.
