The idea of visiting one of the most beautiful Caribbean destinations gets you excited to travel immediately!
You are ready for an amazing experience! That is until you start to think about how to get from the Punta Cana airport to the Dreams Onyx, however, you have nothing to worry about.
This article will tell you everything you need to know and more about getting to the Dreams Onyx from Punta Cana airport.
From the Punta Cana Airport to the Dreams Onyx
When you land at Punta Cana airport, you will be eager to get to the Dreams Onyx right away. There are endless airport transportation options at the Punta Cana airport.
Shuttles, Taxis, and Transfers
Taxi and shuttle services are available when you arrive. Taxis are safe in the Dominican Republic, but booking a taxi at the airport can be stressful.
The operators and hustlers are all shouting for your attention as soon as you step out into the sun; you won't know who to choose.
The Dreams Onyx is located about 45 minutes away from the airport. For a hassle-free experience, you can book a private transfer to get from the airport to the resort.
Booking an airport transfer in advance will save you time and money. In addition, a pre-booked airport transfer is the best way to ensure an easy arrival.
As soon as you arrive, your private transfer will be waiting for you with a sign that has your name on it. Your driver will take you right to the Dreams Onyx resort and Spa.
A one-way trip from the airport to Dreams Onyx should cost around $50 for up to six people. Of course, if you need a bigger vehicle to accommodate more people, prices will increase.
The Dreams Onyx does not have its own shuttle service. Instead, their local partner Amstar charges 93 USD for the same trip, a hefty price to pay.
You can find luxury transfers available for higher prices as well. A luxury transfer averages $85 per trip. A luxury transfer entails a luxury vehicle, English speaking driver, and beer and water on arrival.
Shared Punta Cana Shuttles
Shared shuttles are less recommended while traveling to the Dreams Onyx.
Dreams Onyx does not offer any form of transportation, so you would need to book the shared transfer with another company. Amstar, a local company, charges USD 88 for a round-trip shared shuttle for 2 guests, almost the same cost of a private shuttle for up to 6 guests.
Also, the resort is one of the farthest in what is considered the Punta Cana strip of resorts, so expect to be one of the last to be dropped off and one of the first to be picked up first on the way back to the airport.
Buses, Motorbikes, and Rental Cars
If you're traveling light, consider taking a local bus (gua gua) to the resort. Unfortunately, there is no space for suitcases from the airport.
Bus maps are available at stands around the airport, please note, that there is no direct bus from the Punta Cana Airport to the Dreams Onyx. Taking a bus to the resort would require a detour to Higuey, making the total trip close to 3 hours long.
Cars are also available for rental at the airport by all major car rental companies. However, it is not recommended to rent a car because driving can be chaotic, especially in the cities, also, car rentals are extremely pricey and jacked up with hidden fees at the airport.
Yet, if you plan an extended stay in Punta Cana and have experience driving with little rule-following, it is another consideration.
Motorcycle taxis called motoconchos are popular in the Dominican Republic, unfortunately, there is no way to get a Motorcycle Taxi at the airport.
Uber in Punta Cana
Uber is also available in Punta Cana. As a warning, you should not call an Uber from the airport or the resort. Due to local disagreements, Uber is not welcome by taxi drivers, also, Ubers are not allowed into the resort, so you would need to stay at the gate of the Dreams Onyx and wait for a golf cart for the remainder of the ride.
If you call an Uber in an area with a taxi stand or high traffic, an argument can break out between the Uber and taxi drivers. Thus, using Uber is not a safe choice nor the most enjoyable in Punta Cana.
Staying at the Dreams Onyx resort and Spa
As one of the highest-rated resorts in Punta Cana, the Dreams Onyx will be the ultimate vacation. A family-oriented resort, one of the best beaches in Punta Cana, and plenty of entertainment, activities, and food options that are to die for will make it so that you would not want to leave the resort.
The resort offers many different activities for visitors to enjoy. Some activities are included in the all-inclusive fee. Many are not.
There are also plenty of additional activities you can do outside of the resort.
A popular activity is the Party Boat / Snorkeling! Enjoy a 3-hour boat cruise equipped with an open bar, snorkeling gear, and the most entertaining staff you can imagine.
If party boat/snorkeling tours aren’t for you, there are fishing trips, whale watching, catamaran tours, and zip lines, among others.
