Transportation in the Dominican Republic

Drive times between Santo Domingo and major tourist areas:

Puerto Plata or Samana – approx 4 hours to the north

Punta Cana, CAP Cana or Bavaro – about 4 hours to the east

La Romana – about 2 hours to the east.

There are several private airlines that offer domestic flights within the island with prices that
range from 50 to 70 dollars per person.
The major bus companies in the Dominican Republic are Caribe Tours and Metro
Tours, which operate air-conditioned, comfortable 52-seat buses. Their rates for
travel are quite reasonable, even for long distances. Most buses travel to, and stop
in only the larger towns or cities, so you may have to take an alternate form of
transport to/from the bus station and your final destination.
A taxi cab driver can take you. (Do not take an unknown driver) We can recommend known taxi drivers if you wish. Always agree to a price in advance with the taxi driver.
Taxi service between Chabad and the Santo Domingo Intl. Airport is about US$40
