From the two airports of St Martin, taxis are readily available to go to the port (don’t forget to specify your port of departure to St Martin).
We can reserve taxis from Oyster Pond on your way back from St Barts, and taxis are available directly at the port of Marigot. Taxi fares vary depending on the route, the number of people and baggage, so it is difficult to give you an exact idea of prices. For example, between €20 and 30 for 2 people between the international airport of Juliana and Marigot. You may pay in euros or in dollars.
