They pass by the main gate in each direction about every 30 minutes. From the gate, to the left is the community of Rio San Juan, which is about a 15 minute ride. Many of the hotel workers live there. To the right is Gaspar Hernandez, Cabarete, Sosua, etc. The ride to Gaspar Hernandez is about 20 minutes. It’s a busy little town with lots of stores and incredibly clean (and well stocked) grocery stores. Double that time to Cabarete. Hold on tight! They leave that sliding side door wide open for the ride. It’s exhilirating! The cost doesn’t appear to be a set rate but $1 US per person, payable to the driver or his attendant appears to be acceptable. So is a tip! We generally give them $5 per couple in each direction.
