Visitors coming to the Las Américas International Airport (SDQ) from Newark, New Jersey, can expect warm weather and friendly locals upon arriving in the Dominican Republic. SDQ is located in Punta Caucedo, near the popular cities of Santo Domingo and Boca Chica. The capital of the Dominican Republic, Santo Domingo is a beautiful town filled with colonial buildings.
Many visitors enjoy touring the Catedral Santa María La Menor, also referred to as America's first church. Just 19 miles east of the capital city is Boca Chica, a popular tourist destination that is known for its white sand beaches like Bocano Beach. This vibrant town attracts visitors from all over the world, turning into an international party city at night.
SDQ is the second busiest airport in the Dominican Republic, and one of the largest bringing passengers into the Caribbean. Visitors from Newark should keep this in mind, so that you give yourselves plenty of time to get to your final destination. The airport is located about a 30-minute drive from Santo Domingo, and a 13-minute drive from Boca Chica. Because rental cars are so cheap here, it is recommended that you get one to ensure that you are able to travel quickly and safely.
Flights from the Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to SDQ generally last just under four hours nonstop. For itineraries with a layover, your total travel time will probably be between six and eight hours.
