Airport/Hotel tranportation

Gearing up and finalizing for our trip, any recommendations for car service? I don't think we are interested in a shuttle, some of the transfer sites are offering from $80-$130 total for two from the Punta Cana Airport to Majestic Colonial and back. Not sure if those are fair rates or just take a taxi?

A fair rate would be closer to the 80-90 range. Cheapest private transfer currently is Gobecon (gobecon.com)for around $65 round trip to the majestics. We used them in March, with no complaints.

Or just grab a cab at the airport, safe and abundant, $40 each way to Majestics

Gobecon is pricing without taxes, right?

Taxi rates and IBK show their rates as a total with all taxes already in

the easiest way is as Jim said, to grab a Txi.

24/7 available, hassle free, reliable, nothing to worry about

So the $40 each way is for the two of us including 2-3 pieces of luggage?

yup as Mike said prices are for 4 people so the 2 of you will be more then fine....

If you want a nice cold Presidente don't buy them at the airport... once you get on your way let the taxi driver know and he will stop at a local place to pick some up for you... much cheaper!
