GETTING AROUND IN BOCAS
A taxi to town from the house costs $1 and takes 5 minutes. The taxi can be a yellow and black New York-style taxi or a "buseta," a small bus or collective van. Don't be surprised if your taxi already has passengers on board or stops along the way. In Bocas, taxis are shared to save trips and serve as many people as possible. No worries, it is safe, and your driver will drop you off at your destination according to the shortest route for him.
On foot, the journey takes about 20 minutes.
Renting a bike in town costs $5-$10 per day. The price is $30 for half a day and $40 per day for electric bikes.
It is also possible to rent golf carts and quads.
From the city center, boats take you all around the archipelago. Most boat trips can also be made from home. Ask us for advice!
