Most of the tourists who arrive in the Dominican Republic do it through one of its eight international airports, which handle flights from everywhere all over the world. It is also possible to travel by air within the country since the Dominican Republic has several aerodromes that handle domestic flights, and you can also take an helicopter flight.

Another way of getting to the Dominican Republic is to do it by ship through the Caribbean Sea, and getting off at any of its most important harbours, like Santo Domingo’s or La Romana’s, while you enjoy a fabulous cruise.

The bus (or “guagua”) system will take you to any Dominican destination by its intercity buses while you can move within the city using the local guaguas.

You can also travel within Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic’s capital city, or within other important cities by taxi, taking advantage of the peculiar “conchos” and “motoconchos”, private vehicles that offer a transportation service, or even hiring a horse carriage.
