Taxi

Taxis are numerous and´they can be flagged down on the street, picked up at ranks or booked by phone or from the hotel reception. Taxi drivers are usually reluctant to turn on the meter (or to admit to speaking English): insist on the meter, or bargain over the fare before boarding. Standard (red) taxis are more numerous and they are not air conditioned. Air conditioned taxis are much more comfortable, but also more expensive. Shared taxis are also used for longer journeys (including trips to the mainland).
