Is Beer available on bus ride from Airport to GB El Portillo

Have never visited DR before and wanted to know if purchasing beer on the bus ride to the resort from the Airport is an option or not? In Cuba we could purchase a few beer from a drinks stand outside the airport and take those on the bus with us, and in Mexico they sold beer directly on the bus. It's been a damn cold snowy winter and would like to soak up as much sun and relaxation time as possible from the moment we set foot in DR....and it all starts with a beer :)

There is a small store at the small airport where you can get beer if they are open. If not just ask the bus driver to stop. He will with a small gratuity.

That's good to know thanks :) We will be arriving at Samana Airport at approx 1:00pm so I would think the store will be open. Cheers!

I would think so too. There's only 2 flights a day or so into El Catey.

When you come out of the airport go to your right, you will see a small store, we got some there in Sep

you will see the bus to your left, try and sit on the left hand side of the bus for the view enjoy.

Good question! And the answer I was looking for! We are going to DR for the first time at the end of April.
