    We will need a taxi or transfer from Hotel Sotavento to Secrets the Vine. I've gotten a price of $35 from USA Transfers but am thinking a taxi must be cheaper -- doesn't appear far on a map. Don't want to take a bus as we will have suitcases.
    Any idea on the cost of a cab?

    We got a taxi in May from Coco Bongos back to Temptations at 4am and it cost 20 dollars if that is any help.

    That does help. Perhaps $35 is the going rate based on comparable distances. Thanks for info!

    I would watch some of those taxi drivers they tell you one price to get you in the car then expect another at drop off. One of tried to tell me I misunderstood him and that there was a tariff to also pay.

    Good to know. We actually were able to negotiate the price down with our transfer company so we'll stick with them for that part of our trip and hopefully be able to use the bus system as well during our stay. Gracias!
