#1 Voted The Best Airport Shuttle / Transfer Service in Punta Cana.
Guayacanes and Juan Dolio are beach towns that mainly cater to residents driving in from Santo Domingo on the weekends for the beach, attracted by the very good restaurants and good golf. Two large residential communities, Metro and Guavaberry, plus a handful of recently constructed apartments, and its hotels keep the community alive during weekdays.
Juan Dolio is also an option for visitors wanting to make side trips to see Santo Domingo and La Romana attractions, both around an hour west or east. Las Americas International (SDQ) is the recommended port of entry for those headed to Juan Dolio hotels.
PLAYA JUAN DOLIO
This beach has both waves and calmer areas. Juan Dolio has two roads – Calle Principal and the Boulevard, around which most of the residences and restaurants are located. In recent years, high-rise beachfront apartments have gone up that cater to affluent city dwellers who drive in on weekends, attracted by the many good restaurants. Go for the sunset, and stay for dinner.
A yet to be developed beach town. Its golden sand beachfront is walkable and fronts beach homes. Good beach shoes are recommended because there are some rocks on the way. It is a lovely stroll to do early in the morning with the rising sun or late in the afternoon to see the sunset.
JUAN DOLIO NIGHTLIFE
Eating at the many good restaurants in Guayacanes at Calle Central and Juan Dolio at the Boulevard or Calle Principal, with or without a view, brings thousands of city residents to this beach area, especially on weekends. Many of the restaurants double as bars and lounges. Try your luck gambling at Dream Casino at the Coral Costa Caribe resort in Juan Dolio.
CUEVA DE LAS MARAVILLAS
The Cave of the Wonders is located west of La Romana on the San Pedro de Macorís-La Romana highway, near the Soco River and Playa Nueva Romana. It has some of the best and most numerous examples of indigenous Taino rock art (dating back 500 to 800 years) found in the eastern part of the island. Around 500 paintings and engravings on rock have been counted and many can be seen on the 787-foot (240-meter) trail inside the cave. The cave art shows human figures, iguanas, snakes, owls and bats. Visitors will go down 82 feet (25 meters) to the cool inner chambers of the earth. The path can be covered in around an hour and is recommended on days of intense heat or rain.
LOS MARLINS GOLF COURSE
Los Marlins is part of the Metro Country Club residential complex in San Pedro de Macorís, half way between Santo Domingo and La Romana. It’s a fairly short course, just 6,410 yards from its blue tees. However, players who know it well warn that it should not be taken lightly. That’s because some of the fairways are extremely narrow and others are protected by sand traps and water. Its signature hole is the 4th hole, a 193-yard par 3 from the white tees. It’s a totally straight hole with out of bounds on both sides. Because its very small green is surrounded by traps, this hole is difficult even for the most professional of golfers.
Location: Metro Country Club, Boulevard de Juan Dolio
GUAVABERRY GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB
Located 30 minutes east of the Santo Domingo airport and close to the Juan Dolio tourist area, the course borders a tropical forest and nature reserve. The 13th hole is its signature hole, a par 3 with a crystal-clear waterfall that can distract even the most expert golfers. The 16th hole, for example, blends right into a natural tropical forest. The final hole then provides a different challenge, asking you to play against strong crosswinds that come from 200,000 year old coral rock formations. The course is located at the center of the Guavaberry residential development.
Location: Autovía del Este Km. 55, Juan Dolio

Amazing experience – Great service! Quick and easy ride to the airport and arrived right on time and waited even though we were late to meet him!

Great Drivers Who Love What They Do And It Shows – Wow! Best limo service I’ve experienced while traveling outside the country. Timely, polite, courteous, friendly and most importantly, the drivers enjoy conversations about daily life and life in their home… read more area, their families and anything else you want to talk about. Personally, my wife and I enjoy that because it makes the ride "real" with real people who really enjoy their profession.
When we arrived, our first driver, Yeisky, was all of about 23, a young dad and just full of good spirit. He offered us cool towels and water immediately when we got to the van. From there, he navigated the airport traffic deftly to get us to our hotel in good time all the while holding a friendly conversation with the best English he could.
Our return trip was equal in all of the above with our driver Santos, a retired Telecom Sales Professional, who was just so friendly and glad to be a professional driver instead of sitting at a desk. Again, the three of us had a great conversation over a multitude of topics ranging from sports, to economy and other resorts that we might want to visit. He guided us to departure area and made sure to interpret for us with the airport porters to make sure we got to and through the lane traffic with ease. Santos has an easy smile and voice that should be on radio.
One of the most important things that makes Prestige a go to is how they respond to requests. The day before we were to leave, I wanted to make a change to our pock up times due to my error in recognizing my departure time. I needed and earlier time. I called and actually got a hold of the owner of prestige via the WhatsApp. (You need that in DR to communicate) Him and I made the corrections and also talked small business. All while he was dealing with his kids at the house. – A real small business owner right there.
I now have a transportation company that is locked in my contacts for my next trip to Punta Cana.

Thank you for the awesome service!

Exceeding Expectations – We recently booked Prestige Limousine to transport our wedding guests (~75 total) from PUJ <>Casa de Campo. What a great experience. Our guests arrived and departed across a 6 day… read more period, so we reserved 4 buses on four days and 2 vans on the other two days. Rossy and the entire team were unbelievable. There was not one issue, from booking through drop off. All of the drivers were at the designated pick up point to greet us and our guests with a smile. They were extremely professional and helpful. Prestige Limo is extremely reliable and should be trusted to meet your needs next time you are in the Dominican Republic.
