    Thanks for all the help everyone!
    Please keep in mind Uber may or may NOT be available upon arrival.

    One more tip.

    Caribe Tour, or even better Javilla Tour to Santiago.

    A) If Caribe Tour, you go to the second stop in Santiago (Los Jardines) and then get an Uber to the Quinto Patio bus depot on Sabana Larga (RD$75.00) or taxi (RD$150) and there you get a smaller bus direct to Jarabacoa.

    B) If Javilla, then ask to get off at the corner of Sabana Larga and walk up a block or two (against traffic) to the Quinto Patio bus depot...

    This is certainly the least expensive and easiest way to go.

    Note: If you were to take a Caribe Tour to La Vega, you would need to ask to be let off at the Jarabacoa Crossroads (Cruce de Jarabacoa) and then flag down a bus going up to Jarabacoa.

    Hope this helps,

    HB

    Uber seems to be the cheapest and probably most reliable option.

    Ride sharing can only be set up if you find the other people to share the fare. Not done as part of a business plan here. Hiring a car would be very expensive to do that trip. Taking a taxi would be very expensive.

    Caribe Tours and then a connection in La Vega is how a local would do it.

    Uber sounds like the option you would like best.

    Default Using Uber????????????

    Using Uber has been mentioned several times but the way i see it there are two BIG What Ifs?

    First one needs to be concerned if there will be an Uber vehicle available. Second and just as important what if the Uber vehicle available declines to accept the request due to the distance and time of day. That is a long haul round trip from POP to Jarabacoa and the return leg would be at night. Myself no way would i arrive expecting to depend on Uber and not have at least one back up plan in place.

    Caribe Tours to La Vega and a connection once there doesn't sound too bad.

    Caribe Tours and being dropped off at the intersection for Jarabacoa was also mentioned. I have second thoughts on this because the OP arrival time at this juncture would be just about time it is getting dark. I doubt i would want to be fumbling around in the dark trying to find a ride up the mountain for my final leg to Jarabacoa.

    If it were me i would just bite the bullet and setup a transfer service. To save a few bucks and have some adventure i would save the Caribe Tours excursion for the return leg of Jarabacoa to Sosua which would be quite easy.

    I have quite a bit of experience using Uber and i know for a fact sometimes Uber just isn't available......


    @ the OP, how many people are traveling and how much luggage will you have to haul around?
