Default Taxi

Taxi question?? My husband and I will be traveling with our 5 kids. We could easily fit in one taxi by putting our youngest ones on our laps. Will this be allowed or will we have to take 2 taxi's?? We are traveling to Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Jamaica

That's quite a taxi ride to go from Cozumel, to GC , to Jamaica.

2 adults and 5 kids in one taxi for a total of 7 in one taxi????

The way some of the taxi drivers drive in the islands, I would NOT put my kids in my lap. I'd get two taxis so I can belt everyone in.

Smooth sailing,

We thought it would be fun to see the taxi go hydro...... Yes a total of 7 the 5 kids range in age from 8mo-10yrs and hubby and I are not big people!

Are any of the beaches is Cozumel walking distance from port??

a lot of the island taxis are mini-vans or station wagons. You could do that all in on.
Negotiate for a round trip fare with a designated pick up time and spot. Do not pay until the return trip.
