hello. i was wondering what the price of taxis are in nassau and st. martin. also, has anyone rented a jeep in st. martin for the day? if so, what was the price and was the jeep "safe"? can someone tell me the pros & cons of taxis & renting your own vehicle/jeep? thanks in advance for any info?
We rented a jeep in St Martin and had no problems at all. Very safe. I think it was ~$40-$50 dollars for the day plus gas. It was a little Suzuki. Fit 2 adults and 2 kids. A little tight for the kids in the back seat, but not unbearable. There are 3 or 4 rental places right at the end of the pier when you dock. You can also haggle/negociate on the price as well. Very easy to get around in the island. Main road basically parallels the circumferance of the island.
In Nassau, we took the water taxi over to Paradise Island. I don't remember the price, but it was very reasonable.
