From the Punta Cana Airport to the Bahia Principe Luxury Bouganville
When you land at Punta Cana airport, you will be eager to immediately get to the Bahia Principe Luxury Bouganville. 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 cab 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 Bahia Principe Luxury Bouganville is located about 72 minutes away from the airport. For a hassle-free experience, you can book a private transfer 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 Bahia Principe Luxury Bouganville.
A one-way trip from the airport to Bahia Principe Luxury Bouganville should cost around $100 for up to six people. Of course, prices will increase if you need a bigger vehicle to accommodate more people.
The Bahia Principe Luxury Bouganville has its transportation service. The private transportation for up to 6 people on their website is 113 USD per trip. A taxi at the Punta Cana Airport charges $115-120 USD, accommodating 1-6 guests; both choices are expensive for a private airport transfer.

Shared Punta Cana Shuttles
Shared shuttles are less recommended while traveling to the Bahia Principe Luxury Bouganville.
The Bahia Principe Luxury Bouganville also offers shared transportation. However, the price is 136 USD for only two people round trip, almost the same for a private round trip airport transfer.
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 at 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 Bahia Principe Luxury Bouganville. Taking a bus to the Bahia Principe Luxury Bouganville would require a detour to Higuey, making the 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 incredibly 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 available in Punta Cana. You should not call an Uber from the airport or resort. Due to local disagreements, Uber is not welcome by taxi drivers. You would need to stay at Bahia Principe Luxury Bouganville gate and wait for a golf cart for the remainder.
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 neither a safe nor the most enjoyable choice in Punta Cana.
