From the airport to your accommodations, you can take a taxi, which will cost $25 to $80, depending on the location of your hotel (taxis are unmetered). You can also arrange (or have your hotel do it for you) a sightseeing tourby taxi. Rates must be negotiated on an individual basis.

If you want to do extensive touring, we recommend a car, as attractions are very spread out. Options include Rattan's Car Rentals, at Crown Point Airport (tel. 868/639-8271), and Singh's Auto Rentals, Grafton Beach Resort (tel. 868/639-0030). One final possibility is Thrifty, at the airport or at the Rex Turtle Beach Hotel, Courtland Bay, Black Rock (tel. 868/639-8507). Daily charges range from $50 to $85 a day.

Inexpensive public buses travel from one end of the island to the other several times a day. Expect an unscheduled stop at any passenger's doorstep, and never be in a hurry. Fares are $1.
