There are no taximeters. The government fixes all rates, but you should verify the fare with the driver prior to departure. Fares increase late at night and in the early morning. Expect to pay EC$35 to get back to Spring Hotel from the Harbour. We recommend Gideon Taxi and their phone number is (458-3760). On Bequia, you can find taxis under the almond tree in Port Elizabeth during the day and around the main nightspots in the evening. You can obtain a rate sheet from the Bequia Tourism Association Office in Port Elizabeth (Tel: 458-3286).
