    Default "Aeropuerto Internacional Las Americas" ->> "Punta Cana, Bávaro"

    Hello everybody,
    I am right now living in Santo Domingo with my girlfriend. My parents will come the 28th of december to visit us and they will arrive at 5 PM at the airport of Santo Domingo also known as "Aeropuerto Internacional Las Americas". Unfortunately, we didn't plan really well our trip and now we want to find a good transportation company, which can provide a big enough car for 4 persons and luggage and drive us directly from the airport to our hotel in Punta Cana, Bávaro.

    I did a quick research and found two options:
    1.
    Private Minivan for 140€

    and
    2. a dominican one for 150$

    Does anyone know something cheaper transportation companies?

    The taxis waiting at the airport include minivans, just pick one & ask "cuanto es el pasaje a punto cana?" Pay cash upon arrival, "propino" means tip

    I think thats actually quite cheap. You are aware of the fact that it is a 3 hour journey right?

    Your are saving 60.00 dollars if they are charging 140.00 from SDQ Airport to Punta Cana. Normal fare is 200.00 dollares.

    I would contact one of the transportation companies and verify the price and make a reservation. DO NOT wait until you get to the airport to find transportation. You will have no bargaining power and pay the highest price.

    Thanks a lot for the answers!


    I talked with some natives here and they suggested me to rather rent a car on our own, since it would be about the same price, if you take into account the money we need to pay to get back. Also it'll be much more convenient.

    And before all the warnings rush in: YES Dominicans drive freakin' crazy, I had the chance to observe that during my 3 months now I am living here. Still any suggestions on the appropiate driving behaviour?
