Because of the vastness of both the Punta Cana area, as well as Bávaro, it is advisable to rent a car whenever possible (Avis car rental agency is located within Punta Cana Airport), while other car rental agencies are located a short distance from the airport. For those must use taxis for transportation during their time in this part of the country, a 15-minute taxi ride from the airport to PuntaCana Resort (or 20-minute ride to Bávaro) can run as high as US$35 one-way.  Since this is a tourist zone, prices are often quoted in U.S. dollars.

For those staying at the all-inclusive resorts within the Bávaro area, many visitors are content with spending the bulk of their time there, since all meals are already provided for, and many activities take place there as well.
