Las Terrenas/Sanchez bus to Santo Domingo
Does anyone have any info regarding taking Caribe buses from the Samana area? Should I make a reservation, and is it actually possible to do this online?
Specifically I am planning on travelling from Las Terrenas to Santo Domingo, I assume that Sanchez would be the place to get the bus from. Its going to be on a Tuesday so I am thinking/hoping not very busy. Sounds to me like the bus is fairly comfortable, I am travelling with a 3 year old and would rather do the bus than a $200 taxi. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

just take the gua gua from the paseo
they will take good care of you
and they will get you a taxi when you get into the Zona Colonial.. but know that you are delivered right there... la parada de samana.
the gua guas are all air conditioned and not too over crowded now since they have put on more routes
better than taking the carro down the mountain to Sanchez.
most all the guaguas take the new coson highway
There are buses that leave from from accross from El Paseo, Transporte Las Terrenas, at 7, 9. 11AM and 2 and 3:30 PM. This bus goes directly to Santo Domingo.
Is this the schedule for the larger buses? Do you have the schedule for the return trip to LT on the larger buses? Lastly, do the larger buses depart/return to the same parada as the regular gua gua? Thanks!

The office for Transporte Las Terrenas is on the outskirts of town. When you pass the Esso station, come up to the stop sign and turn right onto the new highway it is right there on your left. Perhaps you can get some info there. If not go on line to lt7.com. The bus company ususally has a small ad showing their phone numbers.
Thanks Steve! I think you're referring to http://us.las-terrenas-live.com. A very useful and interesting site.
Does anyone know the cost?
If memory serves me, I paid 300 pesos each way for the trip on the smaller gua gua last year.
