Of the six international airports, Punta Cana (PUJ) Airport is by far the busiest and most preferred by travelers taking flights to Dominican Republic. The Santo Domingo Las Americas (SDQ) is located on the South Coast. Puerta Plata (POP) serves travelers on their way to the North Coast. JetBlue Airways dominates the international flights into the country from NYC and Boston. Private or shared transfers will whisk you away to your hotel destinations, which are usually only about 30 minutes away. Local cuisine and bars as well as internationally known food outlets are located in the food courts. Local art and music kiosks give visitors their first taste of the vibrant Dominican culture.
The Americans and Europeans love to take Dominican Republic flights between December and April to escape their own harsh winters. The warm tropical weather is soothing and provides the ideal getaway. Even though an endless summer prevails, the tourist season never closes. There are around 27 types of climates in the country, ranging from tropical jungles to barren areas. Hurricane season is between June and November and, according to records, the Republic occasionally encounters hurricanes for a short period during August or September also. As a result, this is a great time to find good deals on air ticket prices.
There are a number of public transport options available that are low cost and can suit any budget. The Metro and Caribe Tour companies offer fully air-conditioned bus services between all the major towns and cities. Costs are around RD $300 per trip. For the adventurer there are Guaguas, Caro Publicos, and Motoconchos. Guaguas offer cheap rides in a privately owned mini-van. They spot a potential customer standing on the side of the Main Road, honk, and offer a lift. Watch out for ill-maintained vehicles, rather, opt for a decent looking one. Caro Publicos are small taxis that frequent the main roads and collect commuters. Watch out for overloading, as it can be dangerous. Motochonchos are uniquely Dominican; a biker offering a ride at the back. All these fares are low cost and a real bargain for $1 or less. Helicopter tours are available for those who want to enjoy the incredible vistas the Republic has to offer.
Santo Domingo is a delightfully cosmopolitan city with upmarket shopping outlets, classical shows in ballet and opera, historical museums, fabulous restaurants offering global cuisine, and a vibrant nightlife. Other captivating locations are:
