jdog...honestly, they'll be VERY lucky to get $10 bze. $15 is the going rate, and thats for a local like me who uses the same cabs all the time. i have ONE day driver who charges me $10, and thats only during the day. At night, i cannot get one for under $15.

Cab number 16 out of the central park taxi group is a price gouger. he will charge you up to $40 for the ride, and when you protest, he will show you a laminated paper supporting his ridiculous price. even other cabbies warn against him

the best tip...ALWAYS ask before you get in the cab. anywhere from $10 to $15 is "fare" smile

Yeah I agree with Lara always ask first how much.

we usually pay 10 to go south but not to far past banyan bay for reference point.

I have NEVER paid more than $10 bze ($5 US) for anywhere on the island. I stay at Bananna Beach and that's been the fare for anywhere I've gone and I've gone with up to 4 additional people w/o any change in the charged price.

Another factor is the road conditions.

If the roads are really bad they may charge a bit more.

Took is 3o min to go 3 miles south the other day for cookie bake.

correct, road factors add in extra time and fare for everyone have been more than $10 BZ especially past Banana Beach area. Took nearly 30 minutes to get home from Caribe Island/Sunset Beach after cookie baking and our local fair was $20 and the cab drivers were wanting to charge $25.
