    Taxi From the Terminal

    by grandmaR Written Dec 29, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We debated whether to take the scooter, and did take it but really
    didn't need it except to get to the forward elevators. I think I
    could have gone with just the cane. We told the dispatcher that we
    wanted to go see the lighthouse, and eventually a driver came over who
    would take us. We didn't discuss price this time.

    We loaded the scooter into the van, and I got into the front seat and
    we drove out to see the lighthouse. Bob was talking to the van driver
    and told him we were taking picture of cemeteries and the driver (who
    lives near the Freeport docks) said that there were two cemeteries
    near where we were. The one closest to the lighthouse was the
    Pinder's Point Cemetery - apparently the first settler was named
    Pinder.

    Then we drove by the Mermaid pool (which was on the tour we didn't
    get) and went to the Hunter Public Cemetery which was the cemetery for
    the town of Hunter where the cab driver lived. He took Bob all over
    showing Bob his mother's grave, his sister's grave (she was only 47) ,
    and so on. It seemed most of the people there were his relatives.

    Taxis in Freeport Bahamas

    Taxis are very expensive in freeport, us alternate transportation such as bicycles when feasible. Another tip...make sure that you have cash on you at all times, just in case. ATMs are few and far between so it will cost you an arm and a leg to have a taxi take you to a ATM and then to your destination and back. My husband and I learned this the hard way. We spent around $65 for a trip to the atm and then to the shopping district which was only about 10 minutes away and then another $35 to get back to our hotel.
