It is a 3-hour taxi ride from Santo Domingo.  We recommend looking at flights through both airports to see what is best for you based on where you are traveling from.

Driving in a foreign country can often times be a stressful and overwhelming experience for those not accustomed to the somewhat chaotic conditions that can be found here. We usually recommend going with a Taxi service unless guests are feeling adventurous and have some competency in Spanish.

For those wanting to have a little more control and flexibility over their travel and are comfortable driving and navigating in a foreign country, renting a car can be a good option. We recommend using either AmeriRent or AVIS which have prices starting from $49.00/day which includes insurance. We would caution renting from any companies outside of these two – be careful of scams and shady deals, especially when insurance is not included in the quoted price.

The final stretch into the Dominican Tree House Resort is not suitable for standard/compact cars.  It is a rough terrain.

Parking

Parking is free, safe, and does not require a reservation in advance. We still recommend that you leave nothing in your vehicle and keep it locked at all times.

Recommended Rental Car Companies

  • AmeriRent (809)-549-9504
  • AVIS (809) 544-1573

Taking the bus is a cheaper and more adventurous alternative for those willing to make the journey, but requires an intermediate understanding of Spanish. For those flying into Santo Domingo, this would mean taking a taxi from Santo Domingo International (SDQ) to the Caribe tours bus station, purchasing a bus ticket to Samana and taking the 3-hour bus ride, then catching a taxi from the Caribe tours bus station in Samana to the Treehouse Village.

Arriving via bus requires taking a taxi from the Santo Domingo Airport to the Caribe Tours bus station roughly 5 minutes away ($6-11 USD), getting on a bus to take you to Samana roughly 2.5 hours away (~ $7 USD per person), and then catching a taxi from Samana to take you to the treehouse roughly 25 minutes away ($25-30 USD).  For many of our guests, this is more of a hassle than it is worth, but it is possible to save a little money in travel expenses for those willing to go the distance.
