Santiago airport transfers (STI)

Most of our Santiago airport transfers are booked by clients who need to get to the Lifestyle complex in Cofresí (Puerto Plata) or to one of the many beach hotels in Playa Dorada, Sosúa or Cabarete.

STI airport is located on the outskirts of Santiago de los Caballeros, just off the main highway Autopista Duarte, enabling a quick getaway to the nearby city of Santiago (20 mins), to Puerto Plata in the north (90 mins), and to the rest of the Cibao valley and Santo Domingo (2 hours) in the south.

Santiago airport, known by its full name Cibao International, receives fewer flights than many other airports in the Dominican Republic, so generally from landing at the international terminal to exiting the terminal building where our Cocotours vans and drivers are waiting for you, it doesn't take long at all.

Santiago airport transfers: a review from our clients

"I am happy to say that your service was superb. Finally on my fifth visit, someone (your driver) was waiting for us at the airport. We have used RCI transfer (through Lifestyles) once (no-one came - had to take a cab), CheapCaribbean transfers twice from Santiago (one no-show and one over an hour late) and once from Puerto Plata (which was OK). Since our flight arrived at such an odd time – it was truly appreciated to have your driver waiting for us. Thanks again." from Ute in Canada.
