How to get to Jurmala by taxi?
In Riga, take a taxi or a minibus in the direction of Jurmala is best on the route of minibuses. How to find a minibus ring in Riga? I give landmarks:

Schedule of minibuses on the ring there. Do you need a trip to Jurmala by taxi? But taxi Riga – Jurmala NO? That’s right, do not look for Jurmala! You need a taxi:

Only 10 minibuses per day. Not much … I watched December 8, 2011. By the summer the situation will change. And yet, the number of seats in the minibus is limited. You can not climb …
Still, the train safer! :))

In my personal opinion, a trip to Jurmala by taxi is only relevant if you need to get to Livu Aquapark, Livu Akvaparks. The bus stops right next to the water park. And before the train need a little walk.

Livu Akvaparks is the most expensive entertainment of Jurmala. The water park is new, one of the largest in Europe. If possible, I recommend to visit! About Livu Aquapark in Jurmala, I will write separately.
But, having arrived in Jurmala, you can not go anywhere at all, but just walk, breathe and enjoy! You can not take your eyes off the rich and unique architecture of the city, which harmoniously combines luxurious comfortable resort buildings with the cutest wooden houses that have existed for over a century in the city and successfully complement the distinctive flavor of the area.
