9. Taxis & Transfers: Since Amber Cove port is located about 15 minutes away from the heart of Puerto Plata, expect the taxi service to reflect that fact. A transfer to the Playa Dorada beach costs $40.00 one way for 5 people, plus $6.00 one way for extra passengers. These are the rates published by the taxis at the port, perhaps you will find a bit higher rates from other vendors that might offer higher end rides.

The trip to Sosua Beach (about 35 mins) costs $60.00 for 5 people, and $9.00 for extra passenger, one way. The chart below shows the relationship of distance vs cost, so you can see that a trip to Punta Rucia (about 1.3 hrs) costs $90.00 and $13.00 per extra passenger above 5 people, one way. The chart opens when clicked on, so you can see the rates in expanded view.
