what is the taxi situation at the airport? Should I choose random taxi or make arrangements with a company?

You will find a desk for the Taxi Despatchers Desk outside the exit door of the airport. Go to them and they tell you the price, do a ticket for you and send you in the right direction. Very easy. Expect to share your taxi though, same price. Taxis are mainly minibuses out of the airport and they try to get 4 or 6 people on each. Wait time is only around 5/10 mins but took us unaware when we went.

Any pre-booked transfer will be more expensive than using the official dispatcher at the airport. The system is surprisingly efficient.

Well it was chaos when we arrived last January. Yes we got a ticket with a price from the dispatcher, but instead of then having our own taxi/ minibus to our hotel, as happens in Barbados, we were shoved into a minibus with 5 other tourists, all going in the same general direction but not the same hotel. No room in the back for all the cases so some were squashed in with us on our feet! A horrible hot crowded journey !

And since the taxi driver got the fare from 4 separate parties pretty profitable for them.

Much better I would suggest to prebook someone to collect you, even if it costs a few dollars more.
