Santo Domingo Taxi Prices

Santo Domingo taxis don’t use a taximeter to calculate their fare. Instead, the driver will usually tell you a flat-rate price depending on your destination. For example, an average fare from one side of the city to the other is €4 ($250 DOP). If you’re travelling within the historical centre (Zona Colonial), the price will be much cheaper, around €1-2 ($50-100 DOP). It’s worth noting that during the nighttime, these prices may increase as the demand for Santo Domingo taxis is usually higher.
