On the other hand, you can find many different Dominican
Republic transportation options such as taxis. Taxis
in the Dominican Republic have fixed rates so this can
really be a blessing especially if there are many places
you wish to visit. Taxi drivers generally speak enough
English to be a local guide to many of the tourist
attractions or for finding a local nightclub. It is
best with this Dominican Republic transportation service
to find newer vehicles and to ask about prices before
jumping in the cab. Older taxis may not have air-conditioning
and some drivers may try to get more than the going rate.
The Dominican Republic bus is your least expensive way to travel. The Dominican Republic has three major bus companies. All the companies provide air conditioning and comfortable seating. The Dominican Republic busses travel through and to most of the larger cities in the area and transport visitors to and from the airports.
Even though it is not a Dominican Republic bus, Guaguas are privately owned mini vans; they can provide inexpensive transportation. You can always find one nearby and enjoy the ride at a price less than riding the Dominican Republic bus. However, since they are privately owned they may not always be in great condition. You cannot find a fixed schedule but you the drivers are sure to get your attention to see if you need a ride by honking their horn or waving at you from their window. They will stop any place and give you a ride to wherever you might want to visit such as villages or tourist areas. The fun part about riding in a guaguas is that you will be riding alongside many locals and seeing parts of the city or town that you might not see on a guided tour.
