Embarking from Puerto Plata Airport:

  • Exit Roads: From Gregorio Luperón International Airport (Puerto Plata Airport), you'll primarily use the Route 5 highway, which seamlessly connects the airport to Puerto Plata city and its surrounding regions.

Drive Smart in Puerto Plata: Tips & Insights

  • Road Quality: Major highways and roads around Puerto Plata are generally well-maintained. However, when exploring more remote areas, anticipate some uneven and occasionally unpaved paths.

  • Tolls: Several highways in the Dominican Republic are tolled. To navigate these, always have cash in Dominican Pesos (DOP) handy. It's worth noting that credit cards are typically not accepted at toll stations.

  • Traffic Norms: Traffic in Puerto Plata is generally manageable, but always remain cautious. Motorcycles are ubiquitous and can often take unpredictable paths.


Additional Guidelines:

  1. Car Choice: A regular sedan is apt for city and beachfront areas. However, for explorations into the mountainous terrains or less-developed regions, consider hiring an SUV.

  2. Parking Protocols: Always prioritize secure parking zones, particularly overnight. As a precautionary measure, don’t leave valuables inside the car.

  3. Insurance Insight: With varying road conditions and local driving customs, opting for comprehensive insurance coverage is a wise choice.
