Coral Costa Caribe Resort & Spa Questions & Answers

Mount Hope, Canada

I am interested in touring the capital, Santo Domingo, but I can find no information on transportation from the resort into town. Is there a shuttle or public transit? Approximate cost of a taxi?

I took a taxi and wasn't offered any other service (shuttle or public transport) I did this twice and both times got drivers who did not speak English very well, which was frustrating. They really were not able to point out the sites and points of interest. The taxi was $120 US round trip. It is a relatively long drive and rush hour was brutal. I was in Santo Domingo for about 3 or 4 hours each time.

I have never gone from Costa Caribe to Santa Domingo, but it is my understanding that there is a public bus for a small amount of money right out on the main road from the hotel. As the staff at reception or the customer rep. at the hotel.

You can get a taxi, or arrange a shuttle, from most hotels. Make sure you settle on the fare ahead of time. Do not get into a car without agreeing first. Taxi's are VERY expensive mainly because gas is so expensive. From Coral Costa to SD you can expect to pay $50 or more (guestimate based on when we went).

Thank you all for your responses. If I decide to take the bus, can I pay with USD?? (I was told tips in USD are preferred so that's the currency I was planning to take)
