    I understand this should be 330 pesos ie less than 10 USD each way. It is really cheap. Please check again.

So, can someone please tell me the best way to travel from either SD or Santiago to Puerto Plata that isn't going to break the bank? We looked at renting a car - which seems to be the cheapest option but after reading these posts and the US government travel website, it doesn't seem like a smart idea. Help. Anyone. Please! : )

    if you can get better price for Santiago or POP ( even little expensive) that would be better than to take the risk of road transport. I understood that you want to spent your time only in POP

    Maybe you misunderstood the fare. The quoted price is in Dominican Pesos, which should come out to approximately $35 US Dollars R/T for both you and your hubby!

    This thread is 5 years old.
    I know you can do it on the cheap via Javilla buses that will stop at the entrance of Cofresi

    A car and driver for 4 people plus luggage should be in the neighborhood of $150 (???)

    Try and get a poster named Bachata to get you a better answer.

    Maybe he will see this.

    Also, ask the hotel if they have pick up service. You do have options.

    Enjoy your stay but get out of the resort and into town...
