When walking just won't do.... getting around town in Pearl Lagoon.

Pearl Lagoon is a small community. It really is possible to walk from one end of  town to the other in about 15 minutes. Walking is a nice way to get to know everyone and for them to meet you. However, there are times when walking is out of the question - it's too hot/raining, you have a load of groceries to carry, you are heading to Haulover, Raitipura or Awas, or you are simply in a hurry. For times like these you will be happy to know that there are alternatives. If you don't have a set of wheels yourself (i.e. a bike) you can flag down the moto taxi, truck taxi or the collectivo van. I haven't seen the truck or the van on the road to Raitipura and Awas, so I suspect that if you are heading in that direction you will need to flag down the moto taxi. The cost for a ride is 10 cordobas per person and they will drop you where you want to go.
