How to get from Santiago to Punta Cana

Getting from Santiago to Punta Cana with Cocotours couldn't be easier!

Cocotours can offer the following options:

Santiago to Punta Cana private transfer

This is the most reliable option because we operate our own vehicles 24/7/365, come rain or shine. The drive from Santiago airport to Punta Cana takes about 4 hours in one of our comfortable air-conditioned vans or buses.

After leaving Santiago airport or your hotel in downtown Santiago, the first half of the drive takes you south to Santo Domingo then east past the towns and resort areas of Boca Chica, Juan Dolio, San Pedro de Macorís and La Romana. It's a good road all the way!
