The hotels here do not provide shuttle buses, unless it's included in your travel package.

You can get the taxi at the airport, the cost is probably around 80 USD (not sure about the price I have only cost to Bayahibe that is much further and it's 110 USD)

Happy travel

Denise,

Thanks for your help. Is there anything that we need to be aware of when hiring a taxi?

Before you get to the taxi, make sure you agree on the price. Most of the drivers speak English very well (specially by the airport), so you shouldn't have problem to communicate. Pay when you get to the resort. Also try to set the return trip with the same driver and maybe he will give you a better rate. So if you do this pay each way separately, do not prepay. I am sure most of the drivers are very honest guys, but just stay on the safe side:)

Happy travel

Denise

I guess 150 USD is the price from Punta Cana Airport and not from Santo Domingo airport.

SDQ is the international airport, located 30 minutes east of Santo Domingo city. I agree with Denise that $150 one way must be to Punta Cana. It's robbery anyway, to get you to GBPLR. Contact IBK Servicios who has the best price on private transfers at ibkservicios@gmail.com or info@ibkservicios.com offering a great service altogether. A cab should be cheaper but not by a whole lot.
