Travel & Transport the Dominican way

Before we left I've read a few things about driving in the Dominican Rep. Quote from the Brochure: (almost) all drivers are using the right side of the road; that is about the only habit familiar to our driving. Everything that moves should haul freight as well. If it's designed to haul 100 lbs it will still move with 200 just a bit slower but you just turned it into a real money maker. All the trucks, buses, cabs we saw seemed to be big money makers; they were overloaded only 2-300%. The cheapest way of transportation: You buy or even just lease a scooter and you can haul people.

Here every vehicle is for hire at the corner.

You need just one more wheel and you can haul freight.

The really lucky ones can haul people and freight at the same time. It must be a fun ride behind the picture.

You think you have seen it all? How about a family of 5 on 2 wheels?

The only ferry is between the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. I'm sure there would be a lot more tourists if they had another ferry to Florida. Next time more pictures about getting around in Hispanola.
