Should I Rent a Car in Santo Domingo

What’s the best way to get around Santo Domingo? Shuttles might seem convenient, but typically, they only go to major attractions, making it more difficult to get to smaller attractions or towns. Hiring a driver can get expensive, and public transportation forces you to adhere to someone else’s schedule on your vacation.

When you rent a car from Enterprise, you have the flexibility to customize your trip. Enjoy the fun things you want to do when it is convenient for your schedule – no one else’s. Interested in seeing Bavaro Beach up close and personal? Or explore the majestic 3 Eyes National Park ?
