I've done it a few times before but a taxi is just more convenient as prices start to add up. You will have to take a taxi from the airport to the bus station which will be between 600-800 pesos and another taxi once you get to puerto plata and that ranges based on your negotiation skills anywhere between 200-800 pesos. Bus is only about 150 pesos. After the flight I usually want to get to my destination as quickly as possible but it always good to try something new. Metro bus runs every 4 hours and Caribe every hour do that is probably your best bet.

The published taxi rate from STI to Puerto Plata (assuming the web page is accurate) is 3100 pesos or about US$65.

It's tough to pin Miguel down on a price (his famous words are "give me what you think") so the one time I had him pick me up in STI I gave him US$75 and he seemed to be ok with that.  My gut is that he's more interested in your local transport around town and possibly taking you to the tourist places where he (all taxis) get "finders fees".

The bus is a very economical alternative, but unless you hit it just right, you're going to have some idle time.  In Santiago I believe both of the Greyhound style operators are near each other - Metro and Caribe Tours.  There is also a mini-bus type option (Javilla) that I believe runs a little more frequently.  Unfortunately I don't know much about how that operates or what it costs.

Bear in mind that the last run by Metro or Caribe Tours from STI to POP is around 8 or 9pm.


Thanks Jethro! I only knew of the rate on the BB's website ($90). $65 or $75 isn't terrible, but I am thinking now to forgo the convenience of the taxi and save some pesos by taking the bus.
from sti to bb's, the rate posted at the airport is 90 bucks.

I am flying into Santiago and visiting Blackbeard's for a short time later this month. I see that buses run regularly between Santiago and Puerto Plata, but is one bus line better than the other (Caribe Tours, Javilla Tours)? I also thought about a taxi, but the bus fare is so inexpensive maybe it is not worth it for traveling solo in a taxi. I wonder though how much Miguel for example would charge for a taxi ride from Santiago to BB's?

Thanks Big John, that's some really great news. We were debating trying Medellin next month but now you have us thinking.

ALL IS WELL!   What I saw, heard, and experienced on a Wednesday-Saturday stay:

1. Saw more chicas on the street than I have in years at all hours.
2. Saw more FINE chicas on Playa Sosua than I have in years.
3. Saw plenty of dimes in Classicos starting at Midnight.  Downstairs bar ain't too bad starting at 10.
4. Picaflor is a great new addition  NOT EVERYONE'S CUP OF TEA, but I pulled a sweetheart for overnight.
5. Playa Sousa never looked better and every hut is occupied.
6. Sorry to hear about the demise of Casa Cayene Hotel (Wilfred's Sosua Sunrise). Any inside info on the closing? 
7. City Lights (now Sosua Lights) plans a $900,000 US upgrade.  A) Is that enough? LOL! ... and B) I'll believe it when I see it. 
8. All El Batey streets have been repaved.  They don't tear up old asphalt, they just pour more on top.  So watch your step!
9. Rt. 5 between Sosua and Puerto Plata has added several new stop lights and I saw numerous cops giving traffic tickets. Hey, it's a start!
10. Fewer beggars, Viragra pushers, or offers for change than in recent visits.

All in all, good news!   I'll post a similar Blackbeard's checklist soon for my Sunday-Wednesday stay.
