Traffic Information back to top

The DR-1 is the main highway in Santo Domingo which can also take you to visit the Dominican Republic's second biggest city of Santiago de los Caballeros. Another notable route is the DR-3, which takes you from Santo Domingo to the eastern region's main tourist cities. To avoid difficulties we recommend to map your journey out beforehand to avoid having to travel through rough terrain or any other less ideal driving conditions due to weak infrastructure in parts of the country. A GPS is especially helpful as road signs are not always posted.
