Getting to Tubagua

Locate Tubagua Ecolodge on Google Maps. The GPS service will lead you right into our parking lot. We have no sign out on the highway, so this is the best way to find us. Our entrance is the only paved, uphill side road. There is a blue coconut selling shack on the corner.

Public Transport
There is a local “guagua” that serves our highway, leaving from the hospital in Puerto Plata. It only costs 50 pesos (US$1), but you have to wait until they have minimum eight clients. Tell them you want to get off at “La Casita de Popea”. This is a blue coconut selling shack at our entrance, the only landmark for our entrance.

You can also take a “moto-taxi” or motorcylce taxi from our Junction on Route 5. The junction is called Gran Parada. Moto-taxis charge 100 pesos, or US$2.
