Getting Here

We recommend flying into either Santo Domingo Las Americas (SDQ) or Samana El Catey (AZS).  Samana (AZS) is the closest, but is not currently supporting flights to or from the USA.  Santo Domingo (SDQ) is much larger and offers a greater variety flights from a number of carriers, but requires further travel upon arrival in the country.

From Santo Domingo (SDQ):

Private Taxi:

We have negotiated prices with the local companies to provide direct transport from SDQ to the treehouse for $149 USD for up to 4 passengers.  The drive takes approximately 3 hours.

Scheduling a taxi must be done at least 3 days in advance.  To reserve yours, email booking@dominicantreehousevillage.com

Rental Car:

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.

Recommended Rental Car Companies

  • AmeriRent (809)-549-9504
  • AVIS (phone number)
Bus:

Taking the bus is a cheaper and more adventurous alternative for those willing to make the journey, but requires an intermediate understanding of Spanish.  Arriving via bus requires taking a taxi from the 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).

Private Taxi:

We have negotiated prices with the local companies to provide direct transport from AZS to the treehouse for $85 for up to 4 passengers. The drive takes approximately 1 hour.

Scheduling a taxi must be done at least 3 days in advance.  To reserve yours, email booking@dominicantreehousevillage.com

Rental Car:

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. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a negotiated rate from any companies operating out of AZS at this time. We advise caution when renting a vehicle – make sure you know ahead of time what the insurance cost is going to be and be careful of shady offers and scams.

Parking

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