Getting around Santo Domingo
Don’t worry about finding a way around after your cheap flight to Santo Domingo. Both large buses and minibuses offer cheap, although crowded, alternatives to taxis. If you need your space, taxi drivers are used to dealing with tourists and can be helpful if you don’t know your way around, but make sure you determine the fare before leaving. Multi-passenger taxis, called publicos, are another option, but the fare will depend on how far you’re going. If you want to rent a car, you shouldn’t have trouble finding your way around, but the roads aren’t always in the best condition. Most rental car companies require drivers to be at least 21 years old and have a valid driver’s license and credit card.
