travel options from the island’s east coast include
a quick ½ hour charter flight from the Punta Cana
or La Romana airports or by public bus or rental car which
necessitates about a 4 hour trip west to Santo Domingo before
proceeding north and east to Samana, an additional 4 to 5
hour drive. This makes for a long day’s travel of 9
to 10 hours and also means leaving very early in the morning
to arrive at your destination in Samana before dark.
Puerto Plata and it’s airport (also serving the Sosua and Cabarete areas) is about 3 hours away via the North Coast highway. Some bus service is available to Samana and return. Also private air transportation is also available. Check with your hotel for the current carriers and their schedules. Rental cars are also available in these areas.
