Visiting one of the most beautiful Caribbean destinations makes you excited to travel immediately!
You are ready for a fantastic experience! That is until you start to think about how to get from the Punta Cana airport to the Dreams Onyx Punta Cana. However, you have nothing to worry about.
This article will tell you everything you need and more about getting to the Dreams Onyx Punta Cana from Punta Cana airport.
From the Punta Cana Airport to the Dreams Onyx Punta Cana
When you land at Punta Cana airport, you will be eager to immediately get to the Dreams Onyx Punta Cana. 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.
Dreams Onyx Punta Cana is located about 45 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 to the Dreams Onyx Punta Cana resort and Spa.
A one-way trip from the airport to Dreams Onyx Punta Cana should cost around $50 for up to six people. Of course, prices will increase if you need a bigger vehicle to accommodate more people.
The Dreams Onyx Punta Cana does not have a shuttle service. Instead, their local partner Amstar charges 93 USD for the same trip, a hefty price.
A luxury transfer entails a luxury vehicle, English speaking driver, and beer and water on arrival. A luxury transfer averages $85 per trip. You can find luxury transfers available for higher prices as well.
Shared Punta Cana Shuttles
Shared shuttles are less recommended while traveling to the Dreams Onyx Punta Cana.
Dreams Onyx Punta Cana does not offer transportation, so you must book the shared transfer with another company. Amstar, a local company, charges USD 88 for a round-trip shared shuttle for two guests, almost the exact 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 alternatives, so expect to be one of the last to be dropped off and one of the first to be picked up 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 at the airport.
Bus maps are available at stands around the airport, and please note that there is no direct bus from the Punta Cana Airport to the Dreams Onyx Punta Cana. 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 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 also available in Punta Cana. As a warning, you should not call an Uber from the airport or resort. Due to local disagreements, Uber is not welcome by taxi drivers. Also, Uber's not allowed into the Spa, so you would need to stay at the Dreams Onyx Punta Cana 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.
Staying at the Dreams Onyx Punta Cana resort and Spa
As one of the highest-rated resorts in Punta Cana, the Dreams Onyx Punta Cana 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 want to stay in the resort.
The resort offers many different activities for visitors to enjoy. Some activities are included in the all-inclusive fee. Many are not.
You can also do plenty of additional activities outside 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.
