St. Maarten/Martin taxis

Does St. Martin have set taxi rates to take you to the tourist spots or is it something you are expected to haggle?  

The water taxi is a fixed price.  Don't know about the automobiles, but someone here surely has that info.

I came here to research this and low and behold...I asked this question back in July.  I guess since I didn't get an answer, it explains the empty cell on my spreadsheet. 

Bumping up for hopefully an answer the second time around.

I do not have first hand info as I have rented a car and another time, just took the water taxi.

I can confirm the port has clearly posted prices at the taxi area with each destination having a seperate banner. By the clarity of price, it seems like haggling is at a minimum.  I searched taxis on the island and came across this link http://taxistmaarten.com/

Love the island so enjoy!

Thanks! We've been twice, but neither time did we take a taxi.  I've got two more stops there in the next 8 weeks, so trying to make my own trip this time. I'm not a haggler, very uncomfortable doing it.  If I had to haggle I'd plan my day differently, to be honest.
