    Do not pack anything of value in your luggage. Things like, Iphone, Ipad, camera and passport should in a bag that you are carrying onto the bus. As I said before bring the smallest suitcase that you can. You will be mainly wearing shorts and t-shirts. Good luck and good travels.

    Yes, that should be OK, especially Mon-Thurs. As a last resort you can take the Higuey bus from Parque Enriquillo and another guagua from Higuey to Veron and the airport, or even a taxi, especially if there are other airport-bound travellers willing to share the fare!

    Calle Sánchez Ramírez is the first stop, so you'll have more of a chance of getting on the bus there than at the second stop at Parque Enriquillo.

    That's super helpful, thanks!

    @ Chirimoya, if the OP arrives two hours early can they buy the tickets and go get a coffee or do you arrive and just get in line and pay when boarding? BTW that is a really nice bus they use.

    Once you have a ticket all you have to do is show up about a half hour or so before departure. I routinely buy tickets for people that work for me hours before departure.

    Not sure exactly how long before each departure they start selling the tickets but when I have gone there has been enough time to buy a ticket and cross to the little cafeteria opposite the stop for a snack before the bus arrives. If the cafeteria is no longer there, or for something more substantial, there are several fast food places nearby on Avenida Máximo Gómez.
