Getting to Santo Domingo from Punta Cana airport

We are landing upcoming Thursday to Punta Cana International Airport at 5PM.

By this time unfortunatly the Expreso Bavaro doesn't goes to Santo Damingo anymore.

I read about the posibility to go to SD through the (express) bus terminal in Higuey.

How do we manage this from the airport?? And how long does the ride take?

I looked into the 'private' transfers and found these very expensive to be honest.

Thank you!

you could grab a cabby at the airport to be brought to the regular bus station in Veron, that's just a 10 minutes ride(i don't know at what time the last bus leaves from there to Higuey). in higuey they drop you off at the terminal for the Busses to Santo Domingo, they are running til late and around every 20-30 minutes of departures.

if you are not familiar with public travel on the Island, it depends how adventurous and flexibel of a person you are and if you speak some spoanish to come around, if not then i would not recommend this variation on a late arrival, as it will be dark before you even arrive at the terminal in Higuey, it will be since long full dark when you arrive in Santo Domingo, a large Mayor City, once there you need to know exactly where to go and how within the capital city at night.

hnestly, i would recommend you to prearrange a private transfer or take a cabby at the airport.

happy travels
