DHL or Mail option from PUJ airport?

I would like to mail several 5 lb or less packages to locations in the Dominican while there; charity items for Children International. Is there a DHL or mail option at the Punta Cana airport? I know most prior posts recommend DHL, is that still the best option?

There is no reliable regular mail service in the DR. Most of us have an account with a courier service like EPS, Mailbox Inc etc where goods are sent to their depot in Miami and then forwarded to the DR.

Bear in mind that the recipient must pay 1) customs duty (if value is over $US200) and 2) shipping fee based on weight.

If you are sending to a charity organisation then they should provide you with their shipping address ie. mailbox address and account number.

You say you are sending to various locations in the DR. Note that Punta Cana airport is a 5+ hour drive from the north coast and even further from some areas in the middle of the island.
