Embark on an enchanting journey to El Limon Waterfall, the crown jewel of Las Terrenas.…
Viva Wyndham V Samana Resort is located on the Samana Peninsula, which is the north-eastern portion of the Dominican Republic. The Viva Wyndham V Samana Resort is on Corson Beach, a beach that is on the Atlantic Ocean side of the island and is just outside a wonderful little fishing town called Las Terrenas. Santo Domingo is the capital of the Dominican Republic and from Santo Domingo to Viva Wyndham V Samana is about 90 miles.
Getting To Viva Wyndham V Samana Resort
One of the many attractions of Viva Wyndham V Samana Resort is that it is located on the Samana Peninsula (a not overpopulated area). This does mean that arriving at this resort will take a little extra time for most and trust me when I say it is worth the drive.
On the Samana Peninsula there is a small airport that has a few flights each week (and not every day). Most of these flights originate from Canada, and, even if you are coming from Canada, both the lack of options for the flight and the cost of the tickets usually preclude visitors from using this airport.
From Santo Domingo To Viva Wyndham V Samana
Most people take the scenic 2-hour ride by going from the Santo Domingo To Viva Wyndham V Samana Resort. This transfer has you going through the countryside of the Dominican Republic on one of the nicest/newest roads in the country where you will see things such as rice fields and coconut farms along the way.
Once in the Dominican Republic there are three ways to get from the Santo Domingo To Viva Wyndham V Samana Resort.
Private Transfer – The #1 way to arrive at Viva Wyndham V Samana Resort is from the Santo Domingo Airport. You driver will be waiting for you once you clear customs and then will have you on your way to your resort. Price Quote
Public Bus – With tickets at $10 USD, visitors are often mislead about the savings this option presents. Since the bus doesn’t pick up at the Santo Domingo Airport, you will have to pay for a taxi to the bus station in Santo Domingo and then another taxi from the bus station in Las Terrenes to your resort. In reality the savings is only a little and the hassle and travel time are greatly increased in comparison to a private transfer. This option typically doubles your transfer time from Santo Domingo to the Viva Wyndham V Samana Resort.
Shared Shuttle – We advise this transfer if you are traveling alone from Santo Domingo To Viva Wyndham V Samana and want to try and save a few dollars in transportation costs. For 2 persons the cost is about the same as a private transfer and for 3 or more persons the shared shuttle is more expensive.
Note: Shared shuttles can typically wait at the airport for up to 2 hours for the shuttle to fill up and then the shuttles make multiple stops at various resorts and hotels adding a significant amount of time for a transfer from the Santo Domingo To Viva Wyndham V Samana Resort.
