You can pick up a taxi in Cotonou at the Grand MarchÃ©. Definitely negotiate the price in advance; if you donât want to share the taxi with several others you can always rent the whole taxi generally multiply rate for a single person by six. The taxi will drop you anywhere along the route; if you ask to be let off at the main carrefour intersection you can easily pick up a zemidjan to your hotel. To the Auberge or Villa Karo it is about a 200-250 CFA trip. If you are staying at Awale Plage, Bel Azul, or Etoile de Mer the taxi can take you straight there since theyâre on the highway.
