Taxis and Limos
It is not customary in Aruba to hail cabs off the street by raising one's hand. In general one would phone for a taxi. Hotels, restaurants and stores are well-known to taxi-drivers so pickup from one of these designated spots is no problem at all.
The dispatch office is located at Pos Abou 41 behind the Eagle Bowling Palace on the Sasaki road. Phone +297 582 2116 or +297 582 2010. Fax +297 583 6988
