    • Which airport to use - we will be staying in Las Terrenas

      by KathyLisa Online Now Nov 20, 2014 at 8:54 PM

      I know the airport in Samanna is the closest but I was looking at Santo Domingo or Puerto Plata (only because I can use miles to buy 2 of 4 tickets).
      I would need to (1) rent a car and drive myself or (2) take a bus.
      Having been there 7 +/- years ago, I remember the roads, traffic, and just plain old crazy driving. I've heard the highways have gotten so much better. but still not sure I want to drive myself.
      Caribe Tours seems like a good company. $330RD ($8.00) +/- one way from Santo Domingo to Sanchez or Samanna. About the same from Puerto Plata.
      ANyONE, please help with your experience!
      Thanks, K-

      Is this hotel a better location for a first time traveler to Santo Domingo? I think it is in the Zona Colonial. Is it a decent hotel? Is it clean? Are most of the places of interest within walking distance? What about the CHU CHU Colonial? Is it worth it and how much is it? How much are the cab fares from the airport?

    • A week in SD

      by Corbama Online Now May 27, 2013 at 8:24 PM

      I am going alone in June to SD just to practice Spanish and meet some people. I want to lie on the beach but don't want to travel far from the city. I am thinking of staying at Buca Chica for 3 days and then to Zona Colonal for another 3 nights. Does that sound good? Any idea of good reasonable hotels ($80 max) that you recommend? I will arrive 11:30 pm, what's the best and cheapest way to make it to the hotel? I heard that it costs less thatn $5 for taxi from one side of town to the other. Why is it more expensive from the airport to the city? IS it safe to meet people on the street and make friends or there is a lot of scam people trying to get into your pocket?
      Also, if I book in all inclusive hotel, does that mean three meal and drinks (Dominican food)?
      Thanks for the help in advance.

      Dominica Republic, Hotel by the BEACH

      by tesoro77 Online Now Aug 15, 2012 at 9:52 AM

      I hope you can help me. I booked Renaissance Santo Domingo Jaragua Hotel&Casino (Marriot.) It is WATERFRONT, but I doubt it is a SWIMABLE beach. I was in Julio Melia area years ago (and now it became so expensive that I had to opt for something else.) I remember that most beaches in the CITY AREA are not swimable.
      Could anybody clarify that for me? I saw it on the map and photos, and it is WATER front, but I wonder what KIND of water. I love the Caribbean and being there without a beach seems crazy.
      Could we get to a decent beach from this hotel? Taxi, guagua (bus)? how much if taxi?? Thank you much.
