Coming from the States. What is the best/nearest airport, and I take it the best way to get to your hotel is via taxi for $35 (for two or per person)?
Puerto Plata (POP) is the nearest airport (35-minute car drive). Cab fare from POP is $35 for up to four people (not per person) during day time. It may be a little bit more late at night.
You're welcome! American will bring you via Miami -- JetBlue (JFK), United (EWR). Basically it's about the airline if you want to avoid the Northeast airports. You could fly to STI (Santiago) which is somewhat less expensive than flying to POP. Cab fare from STI is $100 during the day.
