Transfer and Taxi in Abkhazia
Abkhazia is located on the north-eastern coast of the Black Sea and occupies part of the slope of the main Caucasian ridge. Tourists come to this small country during the summer season because of the warm climate, gentle sea, and low prices. The main attractions of Abkhazia, in addition to natural parks, are the ruins of ancient cities: Sebastopolis (in Sukhum), Anakopia (in New Athos), and Pitiunt (in Pitsunda). Religious people always come here to visit the New Athos Monastery. There is something to admire in terms of natural beauty as well: the Novy Afon cave, the Lake Ritsa, a monkey nursery in Sukhumi, and others.
Although tourism is an extremely important part of Abkhazia's economy, most of the hotels, holiday inns, and boarding houses were built in the Soviet times. Getting to them is not easy. The public transportation system, including buses and shuttle buses, is not really convenient, as you cannot use it to get to the hotels located far from the highway or the airport. Taxi services in Abkhazia are cheap, but it is problematic to know the price of the trip in advance. The cost depends on the duration of the trip. In addition, it is recommended to have small cash, because taxi drivers in Abkhazia rarely carry money for giving change: this is one way to earn a little more. Taxicabs here are often old, constructed in the Soviet era.
Therefore, if you want to know the price of a trip in advance, and also prefer traveling on a modern car with air conditioning, it is worth ordering a transfer in Abkhazia. The Kiwitaxi online service allows you to book a transfer at a fixed price, which does not depend on the time of day, weekends and holidays. If you are traveling with children, you can always order a child seat, which are rare thing for local taxis. In addition, you can book a return transfer as well, then you will not have to worry about getting back to the airport or a railway station in Abkhazia.
It is especially advantageous to order a transfer and a taxi from the Russian airport to the border with Abkhazia. For example, you can get to Tsandripsh or Ghagra from the Sochi airport avoiding a long queue at the border.
