Outside the airport there are plenty taxi drivers. The fare is between 110 and 120usd and may go up if you are more than 5 and night time on a private transport.

You can prebook your transfer if you wish or just get a taxi.

MAke sure you set the price before you board.

There is the choice of sharing a trnasfer butr you will need to do it in advance. Check with your travel agent if transfers are not included and if they offer it check prices.

I don't recommend picking up a taxi without reserving it in advance in Santo Domingo. Not that safe, especially if you're American or European.

A non subcribed taxi will be not allowed on the airport. So all the taxi waiting are registered

Agree with B0bK on the taxi.

Only the registered taxi companies can access the airport area, you do not need to make any reservation in advance.

The only issue could be, that some of the drivers speak only Spanish, that could be a problem for some travelers as they expect all people around tourists will speak English (or their language). You have to remember, that the official language is Spanish in this country.

Happy travel
