Caracas Airport Taxi

Get within 30 minutes to downtown Caracas from Simon Bolivar International Airport.

We cannot guarantee your safety as Caracas Airport is one of the most violent and unsafe airports in the world. Even though, taxi turns to be one of the safest means to transfer to downtown.


Given the crisis situation in the country, we recommend you not to accept rides from taxis already carrying passengers or unofficial taxis. While taking a taxi, please be extremely careful. There have been reports of violent robbery and also slaughter among tourists in taxis.
