    Unless you are in a rush, I would spend the night at an inexpensive hotel near Punta Cana and take the bus the next day. However, when you consider that hotel, transportation and food costs might be around $100, if I could change my flight to POP for only $200, I think I'd spend the extra $100 and fly to POP, save a day, and avoid all the travel time in busses.

    You guys have given me so much good advice I'm sitting here in awe, of all the great advice you guys have offered me, I think Ill not try to be stingy and be smart and spend the extra money and change the flight because it looks like I'm winding up spending it anyway might as well not be aggravated too lol.
    I hope that I can be as helpful to the next newcomer as you guys have been to me, hope to meet up with you guys soon!!

    And Too "Meemselle" because of all the great advice my new friends have given me, that is why I wanted to hook up with expats (we do have a lot in common) Retired Military & Retired Government worker

    From Punta Cana you are about 5 hours from Sosua. That is if you went directly from point A to B. You are probably better off to hire a taxi and have him take you from the PC Airport to Sosua. Yes it will be expensvie but bite the bullet and do it. Hope this does not sound unkind but watch you back in Sosua. Your planning does seem very good. You are not in "Kansas" any longer and you can easily get ripped off if you are not careful.

    why in the world would someone land in PUJ to travel to Cabarete/ Sosua. what would possibly motivate one to do this ? especially with LUGGAGE.
    and then you have to do it all over again when you leave ? I cant even imagine.
    I would either change that ticket, and take the hit.. probably no more than $150 to change your flight. or stay in Punta Cana..
    There is no monetary savings that would ever prompt me to do such a thing.. just saying.
    I see the prev comments are telling u the same..
    Just one more thing, those " non refundable tickets" can be Negotiated cancelled or at least /changed. As long as you give the Airline enough time to SELL that ticket,
    they are more than happy to do it.. Jet Blue used to do it for $150 ( not sure what it is now) , and that was for outright cancelling the ticket .. the rest of the money they put into their Credit Account which you can use for like a year.
    And I believe the Taxes Portion of the ticket has to be 100% refunded (by law)..
    People assume that non refundable means you lose all the money, not the case. there is a Fee to change thats all.
    Just dont Never walk away from a ticket (no show) , thats the worst thing you can do.
    Good luck ,let us know how you make out.

    Slow down guys! The OP has already said that on the basis of what he has learned here he is changing his flight. I give him great credit for that, as should you!

    by the same token , give credit to the posters who gave him SOLID advice, seems everyone was on the exact same page there.

    and if you have a problem with a specific post, Report it...
    what exactly does " slow down " mean ?
    I did not know we were exceeding a speed limit here.
    no one is bashing anyone

    Bring an unlocked QUAD BAND phone, and you'll buy a sim card with a Dominican number.
    Use GOOGLE Hangouts for a USA number.

    You need a Google Voice telephone number to use Hangouts. Be sure to sign up for a number while in the US as you cannot do so from the DR.
