Roatan Taxi Prices

Just spent 3 weeks in lovely Roatan. Here is a lesson I learned the hard way.

The actual Taxi prices are as follows: Airport to West End or West Bay should be between 25-80 Lempires. NO more than that!! There is a sign posted in the airport(probably by one of the cabbies) that gives the price of around $20.00 dollars to West End. Do not pay this! If you can not negotiate a fair price at the airport, simply walk the 100 yards or so to the road and flag a taxi down. This may take 5-10 minutes but by doing this you will likely save $16-$18 one way. This leaves you more money for Salva Vida!!(local beer)

80 lemp from the airport to West End. You're joking. The gas is going to cost him that much at least. That's a 20 minute trip, one way.

My guess is the prices mentioned by the OP are per person collectivo.

From what I understand the taxi guys pay a fee to get into the airport lot. This increases their price. The rates from the airport have been posted for more years than I can remember.

When one is dragging all manner of luggage walking out to the road may not help any being your luggage is going to take up space in a collectivo taxi.

I agree, in that if you have little to no luggage walking out to the road may well get you a better price. Speaking a bit of Spanish may also get you a better price.

I have walked from the airport to Coxen Hole to hop the local bus (1$us) West End. If going to West Bay you can either water taxi ($3us) or walk.

Saving money is easy if a bit inconvenient at times.
