Most visitors don't rent a car but rely on local transportation, which is very haphazard and operated by independent drivers. You'll find both taxis and motoconchos(motorized scooters) at the northeast corner of Parque Central in the heart of La Romana. A typical ride almost anywhere within town costs less than RD$75, with the average taxi ride costing less than RD$150. Prices are always to be negotiated, of course.

You can also rent a car at the airport. Your best bet is Budget, La Romana Airport (tel. 809/813-9111;, open Monday to Saturday 9am to 5pm. A competitor is Honda Rent a Car, Calle Santa Rosa 84 (tel. 809/556-3835), in La Romana, open Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm, Saturday and Sunday 8am to 4pm.
