rental car or taxi ??

We"re staying @T & C CLUB for 6 days in August. We'll do a couple of excursions , grocery store a couple of times and out to dinner at night . What is the taxi rate for 2 people, lets say to the IGA ? Also what about the GEEKO bus ?

I would recomend any type of high clearance vehicle. We only used the 4x4 once. We loved the rodeo it was perfect. Go with Avis the were fantastic.

My wife daughter and I just got back on Wednesday, August 2nd 2006 and we weren't going to get a rental car until we paid 29 dollars for a taxi ride to our hotel (Alexandra Resort) from the airport.

We rarely saw a gecko bus on the road-so we rented a jeep from Renta a Buggy-they will pick you up at your resort and take you to their business and let you pick from the jeeps and cars. We rented a jeep (automatic) and are so glad we did. Taxi fares are very expensive and it is a long walk to different resort resaurants along the beach. I wouldn't get a car from Avis etc because the roads are ROUGH. I was afraid of driving on the left-and handled it okay just thinking left left left. Thanks to trip advisor member snorkling who posted many places to go! the post was july 16, 2006 on this forum. There are almost no signs directing you to places to see-you need a map and then as an example the only entrance to Sopadilla bay which is one of the calmest beautifulest shallow beaches we have ever seen is a dirt road that is between two houses and we drove past a couple of times before turning into this aawesome beach. Get a jeep from Rent A Buggy his name is Girod or Girard and his son is Oscar-you will be glad you did-we took everything out and left the windows down as we read posts about cars being broke into and girod confirmed and advise if it is unlocked they don't bother it. Use Caicos Dram tours for an all day snorkel

Forgot to mention we found avis to have the best price on high clearance vehicles and they gave us a free upgrade so we had a 4x4 the whole trip.
