    Default ferry service from puerto rico / to punta cana?

    I would like to take a trip from ny to punta cana, but the airfare is averaging $400.00+ u.s. I have seen air fare from jfk to brq (baranquillo airport) in Puerto Rico for $250.00 u.s. Im travelling with 3 people and notice the airports are only 75 miles apart. Is there a ferry service from around BRQ to around PUJ? Its $450.00 savings and wouldnt mind exploring both islands.

    The only ferry is Ferries del Caribe which offers three weekly ferries between Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic and MayagŁez in Puerto Rico. From Santo Domingo they leave on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8pm arriving in MayagŁez at 8am the following morning. From MayagŁez, Puerto Rico, they leave on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm, and arrive in Santo Domingo at 8am the next morning. The journey takes about 12 hours in both directions.

    Default Jet Blue SDQ to SJU

    I think your best bet would be to do what I am doing in Feb- fly Santo Domingo airport las Americas( near Boca Chica), intio San Juan PR with Jet Blue - I paid $68 bucks one way plus tax. The boat is fine but the service is only odd days in the week and like you said, it's very expensive. And it goes to the West of PR not to the capital

    Thats a great deal. Are these year round common prices or special time sensitive deals. Can you just do two nights to qualify?
