Last time I took a taxi and it was $1200 pesos. On the way back to the airport I went to taxi stand across from Bourbon street and it was $960 pesos.
He wanted $1200 but I bargained a little.

If you use any of the bike shops or condos they usually pick you up for free

But u really paid a guy 960 lol why not just give the 1000 pesos

They will always try to get as much as possible from the airport especially if you’re not alone. Around 1200 is what they usually try to get. Or they will say anywhere between 20-30 usd. I imagine most accept rather than haggle. I usually have a friend come pick me up so I haven’t had to take a cab recently. You could try to tell them you waiting on a ride and then say if they want say 750 you will go now. That being said you’re only saving 10$.

You can get a carrito to take you from/to the airport for around 300 pesos. But they might not be able to drop you off directly at the door because the taxi mafia controls that part.
To find a carrito, check the guagua/carrito station opposite metro tours bus stop in Sosua.

Here are some drivers i trust that are good people and will not fuck you over:
Roger Matos +18498541114, he has been a cop (politur) for over twenty years and has WhatsApp. Kind of a romeo himself and knows a lot of good spots to party, for instance in Puerto Plata.
Jose +18098779041, genuinely great guy that watches out for his passengers/gringos. Friends with Roger, they served together as police. Doesn't have WhatsApp though
Max +18098536852, has WhatsApp too and often drives mongerers around. Knows where all the places like Picaflor are.

They might quote you 600-1000 to take you to the airport from sosua but stay firm on no more than 300. Roger's price is 300 for that.
Other prices Roger quoted me:
* Puerto Plata city: 1000
* Costambar (Barba Negra) round trip: 1300
* Cabarete: 500

I didn't negotiate on these, you can always get them to drop the prices considerably.

Cheers

MP... I knew it was you! He also mentioned safest! A Moto from the airport... Not so much. But likely a true Dominican experience.

You are in a hurry to arrive, pay the $$25 and get a taxi to your door.

You are relaxed when you leave, take a public taxi from the taxi stand. $5, ( More like $150RD) and you get the front seat to yourself and they take you to the parking entry at the airport. 100 yards or so from AA check in.

Combined $15 each way.

I will only have a carry-on this trip and typically travel light. A forum member might be heading that way at the same time so we will see if that works out. If not, I am thinking of using the Publico because the plane lands at about two in the afternoon. An extra thirty minutes to the journey doesn't bother me in the least.

Good and well, thanks for the info, however, you lost me when you said "they served together on the police." That IS NOT a selling point bud. Not even close. Besides taxi's, motoconchos, and putas, the COPS are the biggest crooks of them all.
This shit is between me, you, and Mr. soon-to-be-living-the-rest-of-his-short-ass-life-in-agonizing-pain rapist here. It ain't nobody else's business.

Sorry, they served as Politur. They are and always have been tourist friendly.
The crooks are the Policia Nacional.
