Advise on getting from Santo Domingo to Punta Cana.

Ok savvy travelers. I need advice on how to get from Santo Domingo airport (arriving at 7:20pm) to Punta Cana?

I would like to know if you know of some bus service or shuttle that runs in the evening after 7:30 pm arrival, from either airport or town?

If no other options I might just rent a car and drive myself there on a one way rental.

All advise appreciated.

Thanks

i would not reccomend the drive yourself unless you stay overnight near the airport and know some basic spanish in case you need directions. driving at night in the DR is a nightmare that should be avoided, as well as driving through the larger towns in rush hour. i don't know if a private transfer is possible at this late hour but in the past i have used the takeoff transfer. rudolfo, a swiss who speaks many languages is the driver and is very safe and cordial. their website http://www.takeoffweb.com/id5.html quotes $250 for the shuttle and again am not sure if they leave this late but at least you can find out from the site and arrange beforehand. gl, ben
