Santa Domingo to Puerto Plata by Bus

A great way to travel from Santo Domingo to Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic

Puerto Plata by Bus

Puerto Plata by Bus is a great adventure and easy to achieve. The bus service Caribe Tours has a great service which is regular and prompt.

To carry on exploring the Dominican Republic, I decided to take a bus from Santo Domingo to Puerto Plata, on the north coast.

Caribe Tours

The bright yellow buses operated by Caribe Tours looked fun, so I checked them out on google. Their webpage https://caribetours.com.do/ is easy to use showing buses leaving for Puerto Plata and many other destinations, regularly.

With my bags packed, I went in search of a taxi to take me to the nearest Caribe Tours terminal.

The main terminal was clean and well organised. There are ATM´s and a nice cafeteria on the second floor. I bought my ticket and waited in the airy reception area until called. The bus was new, and the seats were comfortable. My main luggage stowed in the large locker beneath the bus.

The traffic was light, so the bus rapidly moved out of the city onto the open road, beeping regularly at any car that might move into its way.

The south of the Dominican Republic is flat, and it was not until La Vega that the scenery became more mountainous.

The roads are in excellent condition, making the journey very easy. The only thing that I would have benefitted from was a light jacket, as the bus was quite cold.

I was to arrive in 3 ½ hours at the Caribe Tours terminal where I found a taxi to take me to a hotel that I had discovered on Bookings.com.
