    Just go online and answer 17 quick questions, name, flight, day, etc.

    Print out the reservation to bring with you just in case.

    I used to do Uber but after a few disappointments, a scam or two, even once had Uber driver ask for gas money because he was unaware the trip would be to the city. I still use Uber exclusively in town but $10-$12, even $15 more isn't worth the hassle. I like walking down the SDQ celebrity runway and before I can walk out the door a driver has my luggage and in two minutes I am in the cab leaving the airport ............................. and all hassle free, no negotiating as price is set in stone.

    Luggage gets put in the vehicle, taken out the vehicle upon arrival so that is a little perk.

    CaribeExpress has buses that leave from Santo Domingo hourly to Sosua, and an express that leaves 3 times a day. What I am having trouble with is the airport to the bus station. On their website, it says they have an airport bus station, but I am unable to select an itinerary from the airport to Sosua. I can from Santo Domingo to Sosua though.

    Can all ya all help me out. This is what I need:

    Step by step instructions from the airport to Sosua!

    How to you get from the airport to the bus station?
    How do you know what bus to get on?
    Are there any transfers at all, if so, how and where?
    Where does the bus stop in Sosua (Los Charimicos, right?)
    How long does it take, what time should I pick them up?

    And, the process in reverse.

    Thanks!
    Made the trip back and forth a few times.
    Airport to center of town (Santo Domingo)
    can be a little tricky especially if you're not
    familiar with the area.

    As a traveler/ visitor to paradise, I recommend a
    taxi from the airport (for the sake of time and
    convience) directly to CT. Price wise, no idea, last
    cab I took from SDQ to CT was back in 2016.

    However once at CT the buses run direct to Sosua.
    Arrival times very, average trip (2 stops) stopping
    in Santiago about 2 and half hours.

    If they catch a 4pm bus you can expect them to
    arrive in Sosua around 6:30pm. As far as when you
    need to be in Charamicos to pick them up, Try to
    match my guesstimated time of arrival with the
    next departure running from Sosua to Santo Domingo
    which appears to be 6:20pm according to the CT website.

    Hope this helps.... Happy travels.

    CORRECTION. I believe its closer to 4 hours
    not 2 and half from SD to Sosua on CT Bus.

    If you catch a "milk run" Caribe Tours bus it can be a lot longer than that. If all goes well, closer to 5 hours SD --> Sosua. If it doesn't go well, the longest it's taken me is 7 hrs - thought I'd died and was in purgatory.

    Going into Santiago for the two stops there can take forever due to traffic. The stop in La Vega is always irritating.

    Metro bus has fewer stops along the way and is generally a better experience but does not run as frequently and Metro has in the past cancelled a scheduled bus to Sosua without notice requiring another taxi trip to the CT station rather than hanging around the metro station for a few hours.
