Transportation from Santiago airport to Puerto plata airport

I am traveling to Dominican Republic next month. We are staying at a Resort near Puerto Plata airport but Ive noticed flights are much cheaper to fly into Santiago airport. I know its only about 25 miles from one to the other, but I am wondering how much I can be looking to spend for transportation. Also what options do I have other then the bus system. And is the bus system safe for 2 american females in their mid 20's to travel alone if the flight comes in the middle of the night?

I have no language, does something like motoconco (mototaxi) work there? or any public transport from bus station?

Not sure what your are asking. If asking about a Moto from the airport to the bus station, than this is not a good idea. If asking if there are moto taxis here in the DR than yes lots of them. I see you are from Ssoua so you alread know that.

As posted earlier in this thread you can take a taxi (car) from the airport to the bus in Santiago then the bus to Sosua than a cab back to the airport. This will take you lot sof time (up to 4 hours) and not save much money over just hiring a cab for the entire trip
