With the exhorbitant cost of flights to POP, and cheap flights, including Spirit, this info is needed more and more. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Flying into STI - Late night (or middle of the night)

    Need a CHEAP room:

    1) Please give a name of a hotel near airport?
    2) Please give a name of hotel near Metro Tours?
    3)What is taxi price from STI to Metro Tour bus station?
    -The nearest "cheap" hotel (non roach infested) is probably the Colonial
    -there is no hotel near Metro as I recall
    -STI to station - 25-35 dollars - standard price from airport to anywhere in the city

    Thanks.
    Santiago is a totally different animal from Sosua - there is No type of New Garden scene there.

    Sosua - is a vacation spot - Santiago is a regular city.

    Thanks.
    Hotel Platino and Hotel Aloha Sol are chica friendly hotels in Santiago. From what I have read, some pros hang around the New Garden Hotel to service clients. When I stayed at Hotel Platino, I did not see any Pro chicas hanging around.

    Hotel Aloha Sol I did not see any pro chicas hanging around on the inside of that hotel. 1/2 block from the Aloha Sol Hotel there is a casino in the Hodelpa Centro Plaza Hotel, at night some pros hang around that casino.

    From what I saw in Santiago, I did not see any hotels that resemble New Garden Hotel, in having Pro chicas who just hang around waiting for clients.

    Pay for play in Santiago is not the easiest.

    There is an exchange house one block or two west of hotel Aloha Sol on Sol St. on the same side of the street where Aloha Sol is. Very good rates.

    You are correct, the bus stops on the highway.

    They don't stop at or near the POP airport. I have tried without success to bribe Caribe Tours drivers to make unscheduled stops for me (for example at Costambar and at Field of Dreams). Locals confirm they cannot be bribed to do that though there would be no harm in trying.

    But even if Caribe Tours did drop you on the main road near the airport you would still have a 15 minute walk to the terminus (a problem if you have a suitcase or it is raining) or you could take a motoconcho as far as the barrier (they are not allowed further) and then you only have 5 minutes to walk.

    Similarly you could tip a regular publico en route from Charamicos to Puerto Plata to take you as far as the barrier and walk the remaining 5 minutes. I believe they are not normally allowed past the barrier although I have seen one or two inside at the terminal.

    I've done this Spirit flight. It's not TOO bad on a weekday, when the Sosua-bound busses depart just after 7am. But on a Sunday, the earliest bus out is like 9:20am. So I had to kill nearly 6 hours (3 at airport, then 3 at bus station).

    On DR1, there's a thread about an open-24-hours casino not too far from the Metro/Caribe stations. The idea was not to sleep there, just finding a place with some activity, food and drink to kill time 'til the busses start running.

    Does anybody experience with these flights and what alternatives you have? I've flown into POP and Las Americas. I'd be interested in seeing Santiago then going to Sosua/Caberete. Any cheap ($50 ish) hotels you can take a cab to and check in at 3AM?

    Charamicos is much closer to the airport, than the bus stations in Puerto Plata. It will take more time going to charamicos, sosua, because you will pass the airport on the way to Sosua, but the taxi fare might be cheaper from Charamicos, Sosua than if you were to take a taxi from one of the bus stations in Puerto Plata, to the airport. it will be much cheaper!

    Metro Bus Stop is in El Batey, Sosua on the other side of Sosua Beach from Charamicos and thus is a little more further away from the airport, than Charamicos.
