The Dominican Republic has 6 International Airports from which to choose. The airport of choice is the Samana El Catey International Airport. It currently has wide-body airline service from Toronto and Montreal in Canada and major European cities. The Santo Domingo International Airport would be the next best choice. The drive from Santo Domingo (SDQ) to Samana El Catey (AZS) is about 1 hour and 30 minutes. The drive from El Catey to Las Galeras is also around 1 hour and 30 minutes. The remaining option would be the Puerto Plata International Airport to the west on the north coast. The drive from Puerto Plata is about 2-1/2 hours.
