First time to Punta Cana

Hi, this will be our first time traveling to EPC. I did some research, but can someone help give me the step to where I should head out first too when I get off the airplane? And how to departure? I'm planning on getting a tourist card before traveling also.

I'm thinking of using Dominican Plus for transportation, is it best to pay online or cash during pickup? Does the driver show up for pickup once info is submitted or do I still need to contact them to make sure they come pick me up as well, especially for my departure haha

If there's anything else that I should know or be prepare for, please tell me haha. Thanks.

Follow the line..

Dominican Plus transfers , I would pay cash.

Driver will be outside with a sign and your name on it.

They will come and pick you up if you have booked return transportation with them.

You're leaving from a NYC airport (I presume). If you can navigate LGA, JFK or EWR, you can navigate PUJ without much problem. Follow the masses and you'll find your way. It's an airport... not that challenging.

If you reserve transportation in advance, they'll be asking you for your flight info, so no... you won't have to call upon arrival to tell them you're there. They will monitor your flight info for delays, etc.

I think its easier to prepay the transfer less cash to carry around with you.

Compared to JFK it's easy! You taxi will be on the right (when facing outside airport). It will seem like chaos there but your driver will have your name on a sign.

Just follow the advice listed here.
