      Hi Donna,


      I think it is about 25 - 30 dollars each way.
      All Canadian travel  has transportation included and there is a bus that picks you up.

      The bus can either be a open top (omg we are going to die type) or a nice motor coach bus. Anytime I have been in the DR it was both....


      My friend always takes a cab as the bus doesn't have seat beats, so it is safer to take a cab with her son.

          Every experience is different. WBA has several photographers. For me, I found many of my pictures to be at a bad angle, where I looked bigger than the groom (and I am really not). WBA did not meet my standards. 

          There were few pictures that I am happy to have from them. But, if they did all the pictures, I would have cried, seriously. 


          Have you used WBA?

            Transportation is tricky there! No lack of it though. We had transfers included, and yes, there are different busses for each company. Call them and now how your bus looks and where to look for it. It is a huge parking lot full of busses! 


            When we arrived, we found "helpers" taking our suitcases and asking for our company. All they wanted was to carry our suitcases to the bus- for the tip :) We declined- there is really no distance. 

            (by the way, you will arrive at a small airport, no terminal, walk out from airplane straight to the customs. They will take 10$ per person for the government fee (have cash ready to make it easy). There is a band playing and its fun! Its all open air with just a roof. Customs is quick, suitcases are right there. You will be done in no time! ) 


            Beware of sales guys- you will be solicited by lots of them and they will want to take you to your resort. They will lie too saying they are "official" resort transport. This is for them to get money and tips. 


            Once you find your transfer bus, the guides will talk and amuse you, also wanting a tip. So have lots of singles! 

            They will also give you good tips, so listen :)

              Oh! Also, we took wrong bus with guests. The bus had guests listed, but not us because of different agencies. The coordinator in the bus called and tried solving it (we told him we are rightfully there lol ). We gave him 5 bucks and the issue was solved. 


              Lesson - if you dont have transfer, try to give larger tip, not 25 dollars per person. It may work!

                Thanks everyone! We do have a group all coming together and they will have transportation waiting... But, then we have people coming from all over the place - and they may have to get themselves there solo - so just wanted them to have a heads up! Thanks!

                    Hi Donna around $20 or so...if you have a travel agency they should set up transporation.
