It's about 3 1/2 to 4 hours--a bit longer if you're driving out of Santo Domingo during the evening rush hour.

Expat is correct and it can take well over an hour to get out of santa domingo during rush hour (actually during rush hours).

If you are thinking of driving it i would suggest taking the bus. Either the Metro which leaves from the texaco station in town or Caribe tours which leaves from Cheramicos (sp) which is just 2 min east of Sosua. Both will cost about $9 each way and they are big, airconditioned (freezing sometimes) coaches. Very comfortable and reliable.

Dominicans must love AC...because that bus is freezing!

Its a 4 hour drive definitely from Sosua to Santo Domingo. I actually had to take the bus to Sosua because I missed my flight from JFK to Santiago. When I was there Im pretty sure I took Metro Tours for $7US one way. Bring a book and a blanket.

Ditto that getting out of SD is the most time-consuming and hairy part of the trip. Having said that, once you get up into the mountains, it is an absolutely gorgeous drive. Coming from SD to Sosua, I would suggest stopping at the top of the first big mountain you climb for lunch. I forget the name of the restaurant, but you can probably research it. It is unforgettable, reasonably priced and good food to boot!
