San Andres taxi - The best way to see the island

White sand beaches, swaying palm trees, turquoise water and incredible coral reefs are just a few reasons why San Andres is one of the top beach destinations in Colombia. This small island is filled with culture, incredible food, and plenty of all-inclusive resorts to choose from. As public transport is very limited, to get around the island, we recommend taking a San Andres taxi. You can hail a taxi in San Andres in the street, have your hotel reception call a taxi for you, or you can pre-book your transfers before you even land on the island.

What’s the cost of a taxi in San Andres, Colombia?

As taxis in San Andres are highly unregulated, there are no fixed fares for using their services. Either your hotel will barter on a fixed price for you when booking your taxi in San Andres, or you will need to do it if you’re hailing a taxi in the street. There are some routes that offer similar pricing, such as taking a taxi from the airport to the city centre, which will cost around €4.50 (COP 20,000). However, it’s important to note that prices for tourists staying at large all-inclusive hotels may be higher than those given to locals. When paying for your San Andres taxi, you will need to use the local currency of Colombian Pesos.
