Transportation issues

Recommended Posts

We've planned a sunset cruise for our dinner guests. Luckily, there are only 12 or 13 people that are going.

 

With the taxi union strike, is there a way to get everyone from Dreams to the harbor (and back) other than by taxi?

Light at the end of the tunnel.

 

Apparently a truce has been arranged and the talks are pointing in the right direction, government and transport unions have been talking for the past few weeks trying to find a solution, hopefully soon the problem will be over. Today I saw on the streets again some private transport running. Let's all hope for the best.

We just got back. We also did a cruise from the harbor and all our guests were staying at the hilton. They use very big taxis down there. We had 37 people and we just took 4 big taxis. They charged $5 per person from the Hilton which is fairly far. I didn't think it was unreasonable.

 

On the way bag I just found some taxis. They asked $6 per person and I said $5. They quickly accepted.

 

Another time when we went to Cabo we had 8 people in a really big van. He wanted $5 per person. I knew we could squeeze the other 4 in but I said why crowd when we can just get another cab since we are paying per person. The driver quickly dropped the price by another dollar per person.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
