Cebu Taxi - Travel Around in Style

Cebu is a paradise-like island located in the Phillippines. Famous for its laid-back lifestyle, white sand beaches, world-class snorkelling spots, vibrant coral reefs and picturesque waterfalls, Cebu is the perfect spot for a relaxing island getaway. The island of Cebu is large and public transport can be uncomfortable and unreliable, so the best way to get around is to take a Cebu taxi. You can easily hail a taxi in Cebu in the street, walk to a taxi rank, book your rides in advance or call one of the phone dispatch providers around the city.
