This is one of the hardest questions to answer because public transportation around Port-Au-Prince is difficult for first time visitors and groups.
The local transportation is by far the cheapest way to travel. You take can take local Tap-Tap’s or a Moto-TapTap’s almost anywhere in PAP. TapTap’s are about $0.12 (5 HGT) and have set routes. Moto-TapTap’s are more money they take you on a motorcycle directly to where you want to go.
Most American’s usually want a taxi where they take you from point A to point B. In that case there are a number of available drivers you can call to arrange this type of transport.
When calling drivers you will want to keep the following in mind:
- Expect to negotiate a price! Price varies depending on how far you need a ride, the number of people, the difficulty of the terrain, etc.
- Does the driver speak English? French? This may or may not be important to you if you are hiring translators separately.
- What type of vehicle do you want to drive in? Do you want air conditioning? Do you need a tough off-road vehicle?
- How many people do you need to transport? Depending on the size of your group you could smash 15 people in a TapTap or you could consider taking additional vehicles.
