I will be in Santo Domingo for 2 days before going to Punta Cana. Any recommendations for hotel? Transportation from Santo Domingo to Punta Cana???
Depending on your budget and what you are looking for in a resort, I personally love the RIU complex and its 5 hotels and find them good avlue for money.
There are express buses that run from Santo Domingo to Punta Cana 4 times a day that are extremely inexpensive with a travel time of approximatley 4hours.
If you want to travel by taxi, this can be arranged ahead of time with Rafael Silva (www.dominicantaxi.com) and will cost you in the region of USD$150 each way.
