Transfers from Punta Cana Airport

Transfers from Punta Cana Airport

We're booked at the Paradisus Punta Cana in September and was advised by the hotel that they don't offer paid transfers. We've read a lot of posts of people having problems or being "scammed" when trying to catch a cabin to their resorts. Does anybody have any reliable shuttle/transfor companies that they can provide us info on so we can arrange for them ahead of time?

A taxi is easily caught at the airport, but if you are looking for a recommendation I use www.dominicanairporttransfers.com

Extremely professional and reliable.

I am not sure how they were scammed. Each taxi driver at the airport has a print out sheet of the pre-set costs to and from the airport to the hotels. Our experience with them was great and very professional, not to mention quick. The shuttles arrived about an hour after we did at the hotel.

I would also suggest a taxi to your resort. We used them and they are reliable and professional, always available (not to our resort but for trips off the resort). As the above poster mentioned you will get there quicker...not dropping off others at other resorts.

we had transfers included in our pkg price with "Turinter Tours"--very friendly, efficient. you may want to consider pre-booking your transfer arrival and departure and then you won't have to think again about it. some advice... on our departure, the rep from Turinter informed us that there were problems at the puj airport and it was closed so we had to drive 2 hrs to la romana airport (thank goodness in a/c minibus). we heard from others that arrived from resort in punta cana that they were unaware of the airport closing until last minute and had to scramble for a taxi--it cost them $100!! cash.. i know i didn't have that kind of cash left after a fun week in paradise, and my family of 6 would have needed 2 taxis.---just something to consider..(check out turintertours.com)
