Clarify your destination and the price in advance. You pay upon arrival at your destination. Most hotels have taxi stations on or near their property, in most cases a bellman or front desk clerk can order a taxi for you.
Taxi drivers accept dollars, pesos and euros.

For the more adventurous, the local bus lines operate on most of the roads of the area, for a minimal cost. The downside to public transportation in the Dominican Republic is irregular bus schedules, crowded vehicles, and potentially unsafe vehicles, drivers or passengers.
Although for the most part it is a safe and effective means of transportation, it is generally recommended to use one of the more frequented means of getting around. There are also private airport-hotel-airport transfer companies as well as transfer buses available. We recommend you to request the service previously to take the flight.
