Cabarete

Did your time away from the rat race serve you well? Don't hold out on the crew. Post the details so we can rent the room you trashed last week.

Cabarete

Postby nicole » Sun Mar 02, 2008 1:50 pm

Hey everyone,
We have been in Cabarete for almost two months now. January wind was so-so, but it has been windy EVERY DAY in February! Literally, every single day of February was windy, I've never seen anything like it! However, the crowds here are pretty bad. One day a girl riding upwind of me crashed her kite around me and her lines cut into my leg, and another day a windsurfer ran over my boyfriend's lines. It can be pure insanity!

A winter in Cabarete sounds nice, even though it sounds very crowded.

Went there on vacation in 1995, it was awesome! We went for windsurfing, but only got 2 days of wind. We ended up making into a great mountain bike vacation renting through Iquana Mama. The scenery and terrain was epic, even by 2008 standards. The owners husband, name forgotten, made it a great time. I wonder if it still under the same ownership...

Anyway not so busy in 1995, damn, if only there had been money available to buy some beach front...

Is the Blue Moon still there - that was a great dining experience!
