how about Cabarete in the Dominican Republic? There is some flat water on kitebeach and very flat water in La Boca a rivermouth a 10 min away from Cabarete. If you like to try out some wavekiting there is nice waves out on the reef if you go a little further out on Kitebeach. Hurca Season i in full effect already but we did have god wind for kiting nearly every day for the past weeks.
Also when there are storms, they never come to this side of the island. If it really comes closer it hits the south of the island (Haiti/ south coast DR). The only thing we notice when there is a storm somewhere on the ocean, is a great swell and some good wind

Cabarete has also a lot to offer apart from kiting. Nice restaurants, some shops (jewelery, clothes etc. for happy wife
) beautiful beaches to explore, waterfalls etc. So this would be perfect for your wife to get some good caribbean shots.
You can reach Cabarete bestflying into Puerto Plata which you can reach with American Airlines.
If you are interested have a look at www.hookedcabarete.com
. We are a nice little boutique hotel in Cabarete (only 5 min by foot from the beach) where you can meet up with other active people (we get manly kiters and surfers staying with us) or just relax in the breautiful garden.
