How to get there [edit]

Main airports in Dominican republic: Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ), 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 and Metro 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.

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.
