    Uber from STI

    I've had similar experiences with Uber in Puerto Plata. Uber would quote a ridiculously low rate (less than 20% of the taxi rate). The driver would then call me and say he couldn't do it for that price. We would than settle for a rate that was much less than the taxi rate. I would ask for...

    Where to Feg a COVID Test in Puerto Plata on Sunday?

    Are you 100% positive that they do tests at the airport for people fly out? I know on my last trip, they were randomly testing on the way in. But I heard that they don't do that anymore.

    Where to Feg a COVID Test in Puerto Plata on Sunday?

    Thanks for the quick reply. I tried them last time I was there. It was a Sunday and they were "closed" for tesing, but after telling them I had a flight same day they were able to do the test. The process took over 3 hours. I was hoping to find another option.
