Motoconchos - or motorbike taxis - are the cheapest (U.S. $ 2 to U.S. $ 4 for most trips) and are the fastest
possibility for shorter distances in Punta Cana. It is also the riskiest way of transportation.
Always select a Motoconcho driver with an orange vest. this shows that he is a member of the Local Drivers Association and therefore needs to have certain skills and must apply to certain rules to ensure a safe ride.
Young guys drive within the towns and areas and act as a fast and cheap Taxi service. They normally take 1 to 2 passengers, a fare applies and is
calculated per person. The locals use the motoconchios for mass transportation, I have seen 5 people (adults) on a Motoconcho.
The motoconchos have fixed prices for cetain routes, ask the loals what they pay, as a tourist you might pay too much.
Note that after sunset the prices will double.
