    Default Sosua to Boca Chica

    Hi,

    Have a few questions about the best way to get there:

    1) How long does it take by car?
    2) Is it safe for a woman driving alone?

    Alternately,

    1) How long by bus and where do I get it?
    2) Same as #2 above
    3) Approximate cost?

    If I have to stay overnight, suggestions for an inexpensive, safe place?

    Thanks so much
    Ro

    1) How long does it take by car? 4 hours average

    2) Is it safe for a woman driving alone? Should be.

    Alternately,

    1) How long by bus and where do I get it? Caribe Tours bus depot in Santo Domingo

    2) Same as #2 above 5 1/2 hours, plus the time from BC to Santo Domingo., 30 to 45 minutes.

    3) Approximate cost? Taxi BC to Caribe Tours depot, 30 bux, plus 8 bux for the bus, plus 150 to 200 pesos from Caribe Tours bus stop in Sosua to your house.

    Thanks for the quick and detailed response. Sounds like it will be easier for me to rent a car and drive.


    Any suggestions as to where to (safely) stay over for one night if I have to?

    Regards
    Ro

    I few people here (DR1) will tell you not to drive.

    I would listen to their advice. I travel frequently to DR and have yet to rent a car.

    Have fun!!!

    Your plane come in late?
    If so, I would stay in BC for the night.
    It's 10 minutes in the wrong direction, but you could get a real early start the next day, like at 5 AM, and just fly through Santo Domingo, instead of battling the insane rush hour traffic.
    You'd be up in Sosua by 9 AM.

    Thanks John. UGH !
    For some reason, I assume (yes, I know, an azz of u & me) that Ro was flying into SDQ and wanted to come home to Sosua.

    Hey,

    You guys know me - and maybe I wasn't clear. Sosua to Boca Chica and back - hopefully in same day; if not that was the purpose of my questions.

    Thanks

    Same day?
    Leave really early in the a.m. and be prepared to be dog tired when you get back to Sosua.
    Be careful driving late at night. Between the drivers ignoring the 'yellow line' and the bad spots in the road if you are not familiar with the road it can be a bit stressful.
    You'll be driving for at least 9 hours that day.

    Yup.
    Like jrf said, too much for one day.
    Overnight wouldn't be so bad, specially if you avoid Santo Domingo at rush hour.
