Taxis in San Pedro de Macoris

In San Pedro you'll choose between taxis and motoconchos

Because San Pedro de Macoris is such a small town, many tourists choose to forgo renting a car, insisting that they can get around on foot.  While this is wholly possible, on occasion these visitors may find themselves wishing they had wheels to get around.  This is where the local taxi services come in handy.

Taxi Companies

While taxis are available in San Pedro, they can be hard to come by, so you'd be wise to make a list of the local operators and keep their numbers on hand for when you are in need of a ride. You can also ask the front desk of your hotel to make arrangements for you.

An easy taxi-style service to find is a ride on the back of a motoconcho, which is a motorcycle taxi.  These motorized bikes are always zipping around hotels, restaurants, and other popular tourist spots, so if you're up for a thrilling ride, you shouldn't have trouble getting around town with much preparation.
