Most arrivals are at the Santo Domingo international airport, where a taxi can be found waiting to take you to a hotel for a cost of RD$1,225 to RD$1,400. Of course, the drivers will ask a lot more, but you can negotiate. Many cab rides are shared.

If you want to go by bus from Santo Domingo, you can go to Parque Enriquillo and search out the little bus station at the southeastern corner of the park. Several independently operated buses depart from here on the half-hour (schedules are a bit erratic) for Juan Dolio, carrying passengers for just RD$35 for a one-way trip. It's a bumpy ride and is not suitable for passengers with a lot of luggage.

If you're in Boca Chica , go to Hwy. 3 and hail any of the eastbound guaguas (midsize buses). Locals use this form of transport, and rides -- depending on where you're going -- are very cheap.
