Curacao Taxi Prices
The local Curacao taxis are unmetered, so the cost of a journey is largely up to the discretion of the driver. There are official rate sheets that each driver is supposed to carry, but you might find that this is a largely unfollowed rule. Having said this, there are average prices for some Curacao taxi journeys, such as a ride from the airport to Willemstad for €30 (ANG 55), or a ride from the city to the northwestern side of the island for €90 (ANG 160).
It’s also worth noting that if you’re travelling at night (23:00 to 06:00), or with more than 4 passengers, the driver will add 25% to your final fare.

How to get a Taxi in Curacao
There are many taxi services in Curacao that are operated by different companies. When getting a Curacao taxi, the only thing you need to ensure is that they have a TX licence, as these are the only legal taxis on the island. You can easily hail an official taxi in Curacao by putting out your hand in the street or walking to one of the taxi ranks located at most hotels, shopping malls, beaches and transport hubs.
However, if you’re planning a longer journey or are taking a taxi from outside Willemstad, you may wish to call a local Curacao taxi company or book your transfer in advance. Some of the top-rated phone dispatch companies on the island are:
Curacao Taxi Max: +599 9 697 2141
Curacao Taxi Etienne: +599 9 682 5525
