How to get there

, Santo Domingo International Airport (SDQ)
, Puerto Plata International Airport (POP)
It is convenient to use a taxi, which is relatively inexpensive. For example, a trip from south to north of the country can cost $100.
To move between the small towns you may use minibuses (shuttle buses). Locals call them gua-gua
. One ride costs a few dollars. Bus stations are called parada
There is also good bus transport system in the country. We recommend Caribe Tours
companies. Buses are brand new, and travel from one end of the country to another will cost about $10.
Though all prices given above are in U.S. dollars and, it's better to have local money (peso
) when traveling around the country. Find flights to Dominican Republic

Any comments or ideas are also appreciated:
Gua gua is a bus between towns. The only option for tourists at night is a taxi (from 50$).
But if in your hotel you buy a ticket to the night club, round trip from hotel to club and back is usually included in the ticket price.
What are the transportaions options in Punta Cana at night? Moto taxi, gua-gua, taxi? The distances between hotels and clubs are large, but taxi can be very expensive...
Costa Rica is expensive but safe. Also Spanish language is the most good in Costa Rica.
Dominicana is cheap but not quite safe.
Cuba is cheap and safe, but their Spanish is not so good.
Guatemala is the most popular country in America to learn Spanish.
