    As you're coming for 16 nights, I would suggest that you start by travelling to Santo Domingo on the Bavaro Express, provided that your flight lands in the morning in Punta Cana you'll be able to make the bus. Air conditioned and nice. You'll then need to stay in Santo Domingo one night, but you could see the Colonial Zone, even if you've done it before it is changing a lot and worth a repeat visit. You can then get the Caribe Tours to Samana the next day, large bus, very pleasant. Hire a vehicle, take your time exploring. If you end up at Samana and give the vehicle back, you can then get the Caribe Tours back to the capital, one last night in the Colonial Zone and then get the Bavaro Express back to Punta Cana airport the next day for your return flight. This gives you 14 days, easy travelling. The only downside is that you miss Bayahibe, but it's probably much easier to get from Santo Domingo to Punta Cana airport (the Bavaro Express goes direct to the terminal) than to try to get from Bayahibe to the airport as public transport will be more limited. And you'll have some nice hotels and restaurant options for your first and last nights in the Colonial Zone.

    A night or 2 at the colonial zone is a good idea for many reason, taste of real culture and getting supplies.
    You will be , even with the bus, have some taxi costs, like from the bus station to the hotel.

    Consider this, taxi from ;
    the capitol to bayahibe is about $120?
    Punta cana to the capitol, about$225?
    The capitol to samana, $300?

    Renting a car is whatever rate on the internet, plus $20 per day for insurance.

    Punta cana to the capitol should be easy. Punta cana to samana, there is only 1 sign for the highway north, miss it, and you are lost. But the highways are mostly smooth, buckle up, drive safely, brush up on spanish, drive safely...
