Tuléar (Toliara) in detail

Getting Around

To & From the Airport

A taxi between the airport and the city centre costs between Ar20,000 and Ar30,000 and many hotels in Tuléar and Ifaty do airport transfers; some charge around the same as a taxi.


Numerous companies hire 4WD vehicles. Your best bet is to ask for a recommendation from your hotel.


Standard rates for pousse-pousse (cycle rickshaws, also called cycle-opus) rides start at about Ar2000.


For rides within town, taxis charge a standard rate of Ar4000 per person, but can climb as high as Ar15,000 at night. Don’t be afraid to bargain.
