    Default Bus Punta Cana Airport to Santo Domingo

    Hi,

    Iīm planning a trip and thereīs one possible flight that arrives in Punta Cana on Sunday at 7.15 pm. Last time I went with two buses to Higuey and from there to Santo Domingo, but that was at 2 pm.
    When does the last bus from a) the airport to the station to Higuey (Friusa?) and b) the last bus from there to Higuey and c) the last bus from Higuey to Santo Domingo leave?
    Or is there another possibility like an Express bus from Bavaro?
    I donīt want to pay a taxi..
    Thanks for any helpful information!

    It looks loke the last bus leaves at 4pm. There used to be a link on the tourism bureau but they've "improved" their website and now I can't find anything.

    I also found some contact info (sorry, no link)

    Guide Punta Cana - Expreso Bavaro / Bus-Guagua

    I hate arranging transportation by phone because I can't see them do that "bunny-nose" thing when they don't understand you but don't want to tell you that.

    Ok, it seems that the Expreso leaves early. But what about the public bus to Higuey and from Higuey to Santo Domingo?

    Cool, you found my article That site looks like crap right now since we are updating the design.

    In regards to the OP, I am almost postive that you will arrive too late to find a local bus from the airport. Maybe someone can give you a more definitive answer.

    No bus experts here?

    Perhaps one can take a taxi to the Veron station and take a bus there to Higuey. Does anyone know??

    This looks to be your only option. The buses running to Higuey go much later, to about 10:30pm. But then you'll need another bus at Higuey. Do you really want to travel this late?

    My suggestion: get a hotel room in a small hotel as it seems you're budgeting. Next day, you'll have many options available to you, including the Expreso Bavaro.

    I would suggest the Hotel Naragua in Cabeza de Toro as it's one of the closest and cheapest. Check out this thread: http://www.dr1.com/forums/east-coast/114232-help.html
