La Romana to Punta Cana from Cruise Port

Recommended Posts

All,

starting the research for our next cruise and we are in port at La Romana for 7 hrs (0939 to 430). Is it even doable to try to get from the port out to Punta Cana to the beaches out there? If so whats the best way to get there.

If not feasible, what are some nice beaches that are doable for a few hours then some shopping?

 

Cheers!

Hi,

I would like to know that also. I will be sailing in March of this year to La Romana. I ended up renting a car to drive to Punta Cana. Hopefully I don't have any problems driving there. If nobody answers by the time I'm there. I will post my experience.

90 minutes to 2 hours

 

If you were to take a taxi then it would cost in the region of $US110 to $US150 per taxi, one way, plus waiting time, depending on your bargaining skills.

Hi! I'm a DR native and I think you could get there in under 2 hours. It will be worth it, but if you don't want to push it, there is a beach 10 minutes away from La Romana port called Bayahibe. Very nice and literally right there.

Hi! I think to rent a car is the best choice. The highway that connects La Romana en PC is new and safe, and it's literally a straight shot. I recommend Juanillo and Macao beach.

 

Be advised that you will pay 2 or 3 tolls, depending on the route you take. They will come up to a total of RD$300 pesos, or 8 dollars, but you will need Dominican pesos to pay or your rental to have an ez pass.

 

Hope this help, and enjoy DR!

Hi! I think it is totally doable and would suggest renting a car. It will take you 1.5 hours each way, and you could do some nice shopping at Blue Mall Punta Cana. I would book a day at Juanillo Beach at Cap Cana, because is the closest beach to the highway you need to take back to La Romana. Macao is also good.

 

If you don't want to risk it, Bayahíbe Beach is 10 or 15 minutes away from La Romana and pretty great. La Romana is not the greatest shopping destination, but you can get local gifts near port.

 

Hope this helps, enjoy DR!
