GETTING AROUND IN AND AROUND CABARETE
To get from one side of to the other, moto-taxis, called moto concho in Dominican, are ideal. If you walk along the street, they will call out to asking if you want a moto taxi. Going one way from one side of Cabarete to the other costs 25 pesos. If a moto-taxi takes two passengers, the fare will be double. At night time, double tariff is always calculated.
If want to explore the surroundings beyond Cabarete, you can always take a taxi or rent a car. If you prefer to save money, take the local shared bus called the “gua gua”, which will stop if you wait by the side of the street and raise your hand, and will drop you off anywhere along their route if you tell them to stop. Beware that this mode of transport is very cheap but very time intensive.
