We originally planned to rent a car at the Puerto Plata airport, however a friend from Sosua recommended we talk to Daniel at Ogando Rent a Car. Daniel and his associate, Rey, were very helpful and very easy to work with. Daniel came to Bailee's restaurant to meet us the first time, and we walked back to his office. His team treated us like friends. Americans who are not familiar with the relaxed DR culture may be put off by the casual approach to doing business, but that is one of the things we love most about the DR.
Daniel's office was also very conveniently located within walking distance of the condo that we rented. His rates for a month rental, with insurance coverage, were very reasonable compared to the airport. We wanted a small SUV to handle the large speed bumps in Sosua. He showed us several vehicles of that style and we ended up with a Ford Explorer. We told him we eventually plan to buy a car, and he even offered to go to Santiago with us to help us find one at the dealership where he buys his cars. A great guy and ease of doing business with a passport and a smile deserves 5 stars, not to mention that he had plenty of options to rent at good prices!
