Transportation to Las Galeras

Which airport is best to fly into from JFK if I'm going to Las Galeras ? I assumed St. Domingo. And what is best mode of transport from airport to Las Galeras. I am a mom and 17 year old daughter. Now kind of concerned that renting a car wouldn't be a good idea for us. Where do we get a bus? How much is is it? How do I reserve?

Jet Blue has 2x week flights ex JFK into El Catey Samana airport. Taxis are waiting outside arrivals. Second best is SDQ with a more expensive Taxi or transfer ride.

From jfk fly to samana I believe azs is the airport code. From azs take a taxi to you resort. Jfk is the only u.s. airport to samana.

If you cant work out that flight, jfk to azs, your next option is jfk to sdq.

There isnt a bus direct from the airport to samana. There is a bus station in the capitol or a bus station a few minutes from the airport. Do a search or ask in the samana forum.

You can always take a taxi from sdq direct to las galeras , but its around $300 each way for the taxi, not per passenger.

Thanks to both of the people who replied. I will look into flights to Samana instead of Sto. Domingo.
