Taxis are widely available in Jamaica. Most taxis are unmetered in most parts of Jamaica, with the exception being in Kingston. Therefore, it is always a good practice to negotiate your price before you get in. If you are unsure of how much the trip should cost you, you can always consult your hotel reception to find the appropriate rates.
Licensed taxis in Jamaica
Licensed taxis in Jamaica will display the red PPV plates, which stands for Public Passenger Vehicle. If you do not see this plate, it means that you are traveling with an unlicensed taxi. Unlicensed taxis should be avoided as they can be quite unsafe.
