It is recommended to travel with daylight: Dominican roads (often without lighting, signs and full of holes) are not advisable for being travelled in the darkness.

By bus or "guagua"

… or motoconcho! 
Several buses companies offer the most popular, traditional and economic transportation of the island. Locally, the service is covered with the typical “Guaguas” : a service of cars / vans / pickup adapted to carry more people, coming from/to everywhere and traveling only until 6:00pm.

Moreover, you can also enjoy a special motorcycle-taxi service (motoconcho), which can bring you wherever you want and at any time of day and night.
