    Hi Jake!
    I’m going to Punta Cana for a week with some friends for a music festival, and have 4 days to travel solo after that. I was thinking of traveling to Las Terranas for those 4 days, but was also considering Santo Domingo area… I’m a 32 year old female, I don’t mind things being a little sleepy, but also wouldn’t mind a little fun. I also was going to be relying on public transportation to get around…
    Any advice or input?
    Thanks 🙂

      Hey Sharlee,

      Getting from Punta Cana to Las Terrenas will be a huge pain in the ass. There’s no public transportation the last time I checked. So, you’ll have to either rent a car (which is dangerous) or hire a private driver, and that will be expensive.

      Personally, I’d recommend Santo Domingo if you speak a little Spanish. The nightlife is great and walking around Zona Colonial is pretty charming for a few days. Plus, it’ll be 10X easier to take the bus from Punta Cana to Santo Domingo – and back.
