Bob or Silvia . I've booked a flight to the dr Jan 15 to mar 15. I had originally planned to stay in Cabarete, but thinking it over, although a nice little town, maybe too quiet? It seems on the beach side beer is really expensive so I tend to frequent the opposite side, but it seems there iS only the pool hall or maybe one or two small places to pour a few(?) back. Being single, that is all I do at night time, people watching,talking to locals, tourists etc, I don't like spending the night in my room watching CNN. I was wondering if there any condos you know of near the beach within walking distance or in small or large town, where the beach is near, but I can walk out at night, and mingle with the locals or tourists? I haven't ruled out Cabarete, but looking at other options.I planned to stay at the cita de sol in caberete, but can't seem to get a firm commitment about prices, and they don't return emails. There is a town east of Cabarete , something" San Juan " is it bigger than Cabarete? Are there condos there? Are there any condos in peurta plata, close to the beach,5-10 min walk to the beach or into town, Can you help me?
