    You can easily get taxis from airport, ask the airport taxi service center if you have any questions about taxi fare. I paid $15 to the Protea Hotel. It’s less than 5 miles distance.

    We used the shuttle - I think it runs in and out 3 times a day, at 9:00, 12:00 and 3:00 (ish). The hotel is only 15 minutes from Stonetown, so you can easily grab a taxi in town to go back to the hotel whenever you want.
