Well what can I say? Just came back from 10 days in Cabarete and what everyone says is true. It is kite-heaven!!! Winds were blowing everyday, starting on my Toro 16m, later on 12m X2, and occasionally on 9.1 Mach-1. My X-Shooter 144 is a hero!
The water is warmer than a bathtub, it gets crowded, but just go further out and there are no worries, the water is choppy, but flat through the reef and big swells out.
The food is fantastic and inexpensive (ok a few of us got a stomach flu for a couple of days but we needed the break anyway - right).
People are generally ok, but definetely not the friendliest cookies out there. Don't expect the Kailua smiles and hugs of friendship
I want to specially thank Marina, Stefan and their crew (Kim, John, Thomas)for making it so fun for us. Can't wait to get back.
Now it's time to check some Mexican spots.... Will get back with a report in 2-3 weeks. Cabarete we will be back!
