Cabarete Travel Tips
The Puerto Plata International Airport is just a 25-minute drive from Cabarete. Taxis provide transport from the airport into town or alternatively, you can hire a car. The airport services a number of North American and European carriers. As an alternative, you can also fly into Santo Domingo, Punta Cana or Santiago. However, getting to Cabarete from these other airports can be time consuming and expensive and therefore not worthwhile.

When departing from the island, make sure you reconfirm your flight departure time well in advance. Sometimes weather dictates schedule changes so it’s important to check this information before traveling to the airport.
