My husband and I accidentally got on the local jitney bus instead of on a bus that would take us back to the ship. We found that the local buses do a complete circuit of the island, constantly running, and will drop you off at any point anywhere. All you do is stand at a point on the road to return. cost? $1 per few stops. We went on a total circuit of the island and gave them $10. You can take this bus to Sapphaire Beach, by the way.

How long will the total trip take? Is there many stops?

Yes the locals always tell me to take the bus. I have not tried it yet. I do use the Gypsy Taxis sometimes.

Is this a safe way to go with children?

IslandCruz,
Sounds like you have some serious pinned up anger issues about parenting.

Thanks for the great info. How close to the cruise ships does the local bus stop. Do You have to walk far?

cotefamily,

It does seem to come across that way sometimes. I don't think I need to seek help, a good rant every so often seems to work when they get pent up

Anyway here is a link with some info.

Best regards,
