Getting Around Santo Domingo
There are several ways to get around in Santo Domingo. The city
is serviced by large buses, as well as minibuses, which are cheaper
than taxis but can be very crowded. Taxis are plentiful and
radio-taxis usually respond quickly, with helpful and accommodating
drivers who are used to dealing with tourists. Fares must be
negotiated before leaving. Another option is a
, or multi-passenger taxi; fares depend on length of
trip. Santo Domingo is relatively easy to negotiate, though roads
can be in poor condition, and car rental agencies are available.
These usually require a valid drivers licence and credit card, with
a minimum age of 21.
