Hotels In Santiago plus transportation to Peurto plata

Hi, will be traveling to Santiago in Feb. to visit daughter who recently moved there. As her place is too small, any suggestions for a higher end hotel for us to stay at the first night there. Next day headed to Peurto plata. What can you tell me about buses to and from peurto plata? Schedule frequency, price?

It would be best for your daughter to find your hotel for you that is near her place.

As to buses there are two companies that go to PP from Santiago

The first is Caribe http://www.caribetours.com.do/ These run every 30 min during peak hours and hourly otherwise. There are two stations in Santiago so use the one closest to your hotel

The second is Metro (we prefer this one) http://metroserviciosturisticos.com/ and this runs less frequently but nicer buses.

In either case both will be cold (lots of AC on the buses) and the cost is about $10 plus the cost of a cab to get to the bus and the cab to your hotel in PP.

El Gran Almirante is the highest end hotel in Santiago.

If I read this right, we have to go to the bus station from the airport in Santiago to catch a bus to Puerto Plata bus station? I'm a little confused =}

Yes you will need a cab from the airport to the bus station and then from the bus station in PP to your hotel. Easier, much faster and not much more expensive to take a cab directly from the airport to your hotel
