No Exaggeration: this place is awesome!
These people are not exaggerating on how fun this place is in the other reviews. I was here for about 3 weeks. I was not sure what to expect out of Cabarete or the DR really. I could not have imagined that it would be so great. The people I met there, both the staff and the other guests were wonderful. There was always some surf for any level of surfer. So that is no problem. Socially, although as guests were from incredibly disparate backgrounds, we really got along well. I have not been to a “surf camp” before but I am absolutely looking forward to booking my trip again. It was so fun to be around others who loved the water as much as me. I just haven’t had that experience as an adult. The food was awesome. Breakfast everyday and four nights a week a dinner was included. The surf instructors were fun and patient; big props to Scott, Dan and Neno! Howdie was the on site manager and she did everything she could to keep us happy and comfortable. It was pretty awesome. If you’ve even thought about a surf trip once, then you should book this. Water is warm, people are cool. If you don’t want to surf on a particular day, you can just chill at the camp. Easy.
