    Go directly to Punta Cana. What you save on the flight to Santo Domingo you will spend in less than 3 hours when going from there to Punta Cana.

    Default is it safe?

    It is about US$90 for up to four persons to travel by taxi from SDQ to the Punta Cana area. Travel time from the airport is about 2 - 3 hrs depending on the experience and knowledge of the taxi driver. The distance is about 110 miles. Note: All taxi drivers will tell you they know the area, even if they don't.

    If a SDQ flight arrives at such a time in the PM that one could reasonably expect to be arriving in P.C. after dark by taxi it is wiser to select a flight direct to Punta Cana. During the daylight the roads are dangerous, after dark they are deadly. Sunset for July 15 is 7:14 pm

    Regards,
    PJT
