Transportation from Santo Domingo

What is the best was to get from the Santo Domingo airport to the Las Terrenas area? We don't want to rent a car, and the bus system seems crazy.

The bus is very simple. You need to take Transportes Las Terenas bus, goes from SD to LT stopping at the Toll Road entrance stop..

You can take a taxi, of course. At the airport they'll ask about $200. It's possible to get them down to $180. Pre-arranged, possibly $165-170. If you decide to take a bus, you still have to take the taxi from the airport. It's only a five minute ride to the entrance of the toll road where the bus stops, but they'll probably ask $15-20 from you. Don't pay more than $10.

Still the same. Bus with Transportes Las Terenas, Transfer or Taxi.

Not a good idea. The 2nd most dangerous place in the world to drive. Save the rental money and take a bus or pre-arranged transfer.
