PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION IN PUNTA CANA #GOLOCAL
If your trip is an adventure without ties in which you want to interact with the local community and save a couple of pesos: get on the bus with us! If you can find an official map with public transport stops in Punta Cana: CONGRATULATIONS! (please let me know and hand it over…) If not, ask the nearest local where to board the guagua or public buses. These stations will not always have a sign, because they are rather like empirical and often inopportune stops that all pedestrians should memorize. We recommend you to be well informed about the rates to apply! Depending on the route to be traveled, a route does not usually cost more than $ 1 per person. Going for example, from Los Corales to Plaza San Juan can cost you RD$35 per person per way… But beware! The payment of this fee will not always guarantee a seat…

MOTO-CONCHO RIDE IN PUNTA CANA: an adventure for the most risky
The moto-concho is for the Dominican what the rickshaw is for India and the gondola for Venice… We only recommend that you take these moto rides (much cheaper than a taxi and a little more expensive than a public bus) for very short distances and not through the highway! If you manage to find a CHAPI motorcycle, don’t hesitate to take a selfie! Your experience will not get more authentic than that!
UBER IN PUNTA CANA: the millennials preferred way of transportation
We are very sad to disappoint you if you had already planned to take an UBER for your arrival & departure transfers… since in Punta Cana, as in other super iconic destinations, it has not been possible yet for this millennial company to open its doors … When they do, we will definitely let you know about it!
This basically summarizes the main ways of transportation options in Punta Cana. You can also walk a bit or take a bike ride, but we recommend you to do it only in very specific areas such as Los Corales, El Village, El Cortecito, and Bávaro… Otherwise , the distances could be super long!
