Fares from the airport to Willemstad and the nearby beach hotels run about $20 to $35, and those to hotels at the island's western end about $40 to $47 (be sure to agree on the rate before setting off). The government-approved rates, which do not include waiting time, can be found in a brochure called "Taxi Tariff Guide," available at the airport, hotels, cruise-ship terminals, and the tourist board. Rates are for up to four passengers. There's a 25% surcharge after 11 pm. Note: If you call a taxi and then decide you do not want it, you will still have to pay a fee, typically $10.
