Walk or Taxi?

Hello

On google maps the walking time from the Grand Turk Cruise centre to Bohio Dive Resort is 16 mins. Is there any reason why we should get a taxi instead?

Thanks

The walk to Bohio is MUCH longer than 16 mins. No idea how much more ( I've never walked it) but in the heat do yourself a favor and get a cab.

Enjoy!

I don't think the Bohio is open (post hurricane) yet.

There is a glitch in Google Maps (what else is new?). If you find Margaritaville on the map and click on it (not type in the name), you will see that it shows 1 hr 29 min to walk to Bohio (and 16 mins to drive).

Taxi. Your short time you are in port @ the cruise center is precious. Walking would only waste it. Dr. Jim

Mad dogs and Englishmen. Walk from cruise center to Bohio would be about two hours.

Bohio is scheduled to open in December if rumors are correct. Pillory Beach is still there.

"Mad dogs and Englishmen".... Too funny!

Yes, I read that the Bohio is expected to be up and running by Dec 15th! Great recovery for GT! I'm pretty sure that most accomodations will also be ready by that date! And the cruise ships are returning which will now help the local people and businesses!
