    I went to that resort about 4 times and we have always flown into Santo Domingo.  It's a lot cheaper from where we live in terms of airfare and it is a direct flight for us so we prefer that. The transfer didn't bother us.  We also didn't have any issues with unsafe driving or leaving too early.  We always book our transfers through Cheap Caribbean or some other vendors, it costs about $30 per person each way.

    I'm flying to Dreams LR this july to do a site-see with my fiance.  Its only going to be a 3 night trip...any suggestions about airports? I'm just concerned with any safety of the hour & a half bus ride from Punta Cana to La Romana.  The flights to La Romana seem more expensive.  And I've never heard anything ab santo domingo airport.

     

    Any ideas on what works best??

     

    Thank you!!

      We are flying in to Punta Cana but that is because we don't Have any other option from Canada in the summer - if we had the choice we would probably have chosen to fly directly to La Romana.  We have booked our transfer through Coco tours which have been awesome so far and we are getting a private transfer for about $42 per person round trip which is cheaper than I could find anywhere.

        Hi KCB,

         

        I see that you are doing a private catamaran trip for all of your guests.  Can you tell me what company you are using.  We are trying to set one up also, and it seems super expensive.  We are getting quotes for about $90 per person.

         

        Thanks for any information you can give me!!

        Where are all the reviews???  I have been checking like a crazy person for a review of DLR since there has been quite a few ladies married in the past little while but still nothing  :(   I guess I will just have to be patient!

          We are using the same company that we are using for our airport transfers so I think we are getting a discount because we are giving them a lot of business!  But you can check with them anyway, I originally got per person pricing from them as well and it wasn't as high as $90 per person!  It is Coco Tours and I have been arranging everything with Steve - they pick up at the DLR beach which is nice so there is not bus to the marina or anything!

              How long is the transfer from Santo Domingo to DLR?  A catamaran trip is a great idea!!

                  This is about the same as from Punta Cana - you can get transfers from both places at

                  The transfer from Santo Domingo to DLR is about 1.5 hours long.
