there is as well a small bus (quaqua), which is leaving PP at 7 AM and Samana maybe at 1 or 2 PM (not sure).

That must be an old schedule as the prices seem very low.
Is there now a Caribe Tours bus from Sosua to Semana?
If not how does one go from Sosua to Semana and back?
Thanks

My guess is that you go from Pto Plata to San Francisco Macoris and take another bus on to Sosua. But perhaps there is another company with smaller guaguas that could take you the entire way.

Caribe Tours don't run east of Sosua. I believe it is because the gua-gua unions have that piece of road in their pockets. One way to go is by gua-gua to Rio San Juan and Caribe Tours from there.

Caribe Tours does not go east of Sosua on the North coast.

From Puerto Plata to Samana, Transportes Papagayo 1-829-376-8346 or 1-809-749-6415 leaves Puerto Plata Hospital at 6:30 am once a day for Sanchez and Samana and returns from Samana at 2 p.m. They stop in front of Janet's Cabarete and will stop anywhere in Cabarete/Sosua or along the way if you call them (Spanish speaking Salvador). No Web Site, cost approx. 350 RD.

I have heard there is a second bus but can't remember from whom. She may have just done the multiple guagua thing. Call Salvador, he'll know.

I called Papgayo and they said they pick up at the BANCO POPULAR in Samana at 8am and arrives in PP at 2 PM.
