Update: Bavaro Express

In my post from 2011 << click >>, I first wrote about the Bavaro Express Santo Domingo. Since I'm in Santo Domingo again, I want to give you an update.The oneway ticket from Bavaro to Santo Domingo now costs 400 Pesos, which are about 8€. The ride only takes 3.5 hours instead of 4 because there are new highways, no potholes anywhere anymore. It is extremely comfortable, clean and air conditioned. The buses are really on time, we even drove 10 minutes early.

The buses run more often as well. The updated schedule for both ways each day is:

  • 07:00
  • 09:00
  • 11:00
  • 13:00
  • 15:00
  • 16:00

Seen at the station "Friusa (Bavaro)".

The Bavaro Express now passes Bavaro, Veron, Punta Cana airport (PUJ), and Santo Domingo airport Las Américas (SDQ) in both directions.

If you come from Santo Domingo and want to go to a hotel in Bavaro, just ask the driver to stop there. Sometimes it's good to know the old names of the resorts. They switch owners and names every now and then. It's hard to keep track of them. Anyway, the last station will be Friusa, Bavaro.

Going to Punta Cana Airport (PUJ) takes 2h45min from Santo Domingo.

Here are the bus stops on the way to and in Santo Domingo:

  • Parador la Lechosa
  • San Pedro de Macorís
  • Boca Chica en la Estación Shell
  • Aeropuerto Las Américas
  • Puente Juan Carlos
  • San Vicente
  • Venezuela
  • 27 de Febrero con Josefa Brea
  • México con José Martí (station in la Duarte)
  • La Gómez (main station at Calle Juan Sanchez Ramirez #31)

You can buy tickets at La Gómez and México con José Martí. It's also where you enter the bus in Santo Domingo.

The telephone numbers are:

  • 809-682-9670 La Gómez in Santo Domingo
  • 809-682-5881 México con José Martí in Santo Domingo
  • 809-453-1473 Veron
  • 809-552-1678 Friusa, Bavaro

There are also busses to other destinations.

  1. I need your help. Can i take the bus at SQD las american airport or i must take it at La gomez? I will arrive from curacao to sto domingo airport and Then i want to go direct to punta cana. Thanks

    1. As far as I've seen, the bus stops in Las Americas Airport on the way to Punta Cana. It's just that you need to know where the bus stop is.
      Probably, it's the best to ask a local, maybe one of the airport securities, because there are no bus signs anywhere...
      Good luck!

  2. Thanks for the tips. Usually, I do not post on blogs, but I wish to say that this post really forced me to do so! Thanks, incredibly nice article. Thank you lots, I am obliged to announce that your blog is excellent!
