Taxi cost from SamanŠ to Las Galeras
If I arrive in SamanŠ (town) on Caribe Tours, how much should I expect to pay for a taxi to get to Las Galerasi? I want to stay at the Grand Paradise and I will have too much luggage to go in a guagua.
Not sure about cost of taxi, but even if you pay an extra 100 pesos for the luggage on the guaugua, you should have no problem...probably best to offer an additional 100 pesos to have the guagua driver take you to the hotel reception because arriving at the LG guagua terminal on the beach with luggage is a problem, still 10 minutes away by foot from the hotel...So, for 300 pesos, you'll likely get to where you want to go....Taxi might be considerably more, but I don't know since I've always taken the gg....I always find that I take way too many clothes for my trip....just back (yesterday) after one month in LG and Las Terrenas...great time.
In Nov 2010 the price on the "official list" at GPS was 70 $US one way, a guagua was 70 Pesos.

One is called " 5 Stars " and the other one " Optima " Taxi Samana.
Just Google : Taxi Service in Samana
I believe they are charging around 2000 Pesos ( Approx. $50 USD ) to go to either to Las Galeras or Las Terrenas from the Town of Samana.
And they are offering Airport Transfers to and from all International Airports in the Dominican Republic.
