    Default Domestic Flights available? (Punta Cana to Puerto Plata)

    I was wondering if there are any domestic flights within the country for a reasonable rate. (charter or airline)

    I know the most common way to travel across the island is by car, but are there any reasonable alternatives?

    Thx in advance.

    There used to be some charters available, but they weren't exactly "reasonable". The only alternatives I know of are CaribeTour and Metro busses. Very comfortable and reasonable.

    There are no regularly scheduled flights within the DR. Take a bus, a car and driver or rent a car and drive yourself.

    Most people use the helicopter services. They can pick you up pretty much anywhere they can land and take you any other place in the country and Haiti as well.

    Still cheaper than going by charter flights.

    If you book your flight weeks in advance or a month, the price is reasonable for the most part.
    One Dominican at a time please!

    Google Maps says it is 11 kilometers. Given traffic, expect at least 40 minutes. Would give yourself an hour's time.

    More like 20 km.... The 11 km must be for the large airport, Las Americas.
