For those who want to venture outside of the PuntaCana-Bávaro area and visit the capital, but are unable to rent a car, some choose to board an “Expreso Bávaro” bus, with pick-up locations such as Plaza Verón (a small shopping area for locals between the airport and Bávaro (809-455-1473), and Friusa (a shopping area for locals just outside of Bávaro) (809-552-1678).  There are morning and afternoon departure times for this bus.  A one-way (three hour) ride from the Punta Cana-Bávaro area to Santo Domingo costs just RD$400 pesos (or US$11.), which make some wonder why the US$35 charge for a 15-minute ride from the airport to the resorts to being with.
