Sosua by bus: Caribe Tours

One of the most convinient way to move inside the Dominican Republic between one town to another is to use local bus companies such as Caribe Tours. Sosua has a Caribe Tours bus stop right in front of the Los Charramicos traffic light, there the ticket office can also be found. Tickets can be bought on the same day and they are cheap: a Sosua - Santo Domingo one way ride costs 350 Pesos (approximately 7 US$) much cheaper than the taxi fare of 200 US$ considering that the bus takes approximately 5 hours to reach Santo Domingo and a taxi 4 hours or more.
These Caribe Tour buses are clea, air conditioned and with free wi-fi: a relaxing way to travel inside the Dominican Republic. 
There is a very early bus from Sosua to Santo Domingo at 4:50 in the morning (with the ticket office  opening at 4:30) which arrives in the capital approximately at 9:30....it is ideal for those who need to visit the capital and return to Sosua in the same day!
