We stayed at the Extreme for 12 days.
"G", the girl in charge, was very helpful and nice. She saw to that we got everything we needed right away.
I bought the full Kiteboarding package (65$ per hour) and I almost learned to kite good in less than 6 hours!
The restaurant has a small menu, but some of the things they offer is heavenly! (muffins, moringa-passionfruit smoothie, ice mocca, moringa-bread..)
We had really bad luck while we were in Cabarete, we caught both the Dengue Fever, an Amoeba infection, we got robbed, and credit card frauded from a local ATM.
They Yoga-loft was our favourite place, where we spent at least a couple of hours every day, both practicing yoga and brazilian jiujitsu.
The beach is wonderful! On windy days it is FULL of kites, so it can get a bit crowded, but still more than OK =)
Since nobody warned us, I will warn you:
*Dont go to far to the left on the beach with valuable stuff! We got robbed by a kid with a rusty steel-stick.
*Do NOT use the outdoor atm! Dominican republic is top 5 in the world on creditcard fraud. (we heard after we got scammed)
*Use Mosquito repellant or mosquito netting. Dengue fever is not nice.
* Do not eat uncooked food or drink tapwater. Throw it if it is uncooked, and buy expensive water.
With that said, here is a couple of other things we enjoyed while staying at extreme:
*200 m to the left, on the other side of the road, you can get CHEAP and goood coconutwater! Buy a big waterbottle and get it filled every day. Perfect hydration, and so goodylishious!
* favourite restaurants:
beach club cabarete - Fish tacos!
organic coffehouse - papaya power shake
outra cosa (next to janets, on the beach) - fanciest restaurant in cabarete, perfect food, perfect for a special special night ;)!
Presidente (not the big one, the small one with a surfboardsign and a small pool) - Fruit punch!!
We enjoyed our stay at the extreme hotel! Thank you Mona-Lisa, G, Morpheus, Matilda, Molly (yogateacher) and everyone else!
