concur - well put on the fat german tourists. they seem to be a plague in the north.
the area is not too hectic at all. i will say when its tourist season, there is more of a local business push. but so long as you're a responsible traveler, make nice with the dominican and haitians (maybe learn a little spanish), you shouldn't have a problem. people will start to recognize you and know there's no point.
its a great spot for meeting people.
the few locals who are into surfing are a blast to spend a day with. dont be offended if they ask you for a meal or money at the end of the day. it's not their reason for chilling with you. they're just asking for a hand from people who have got.

yeah right!! - whoever thinks caberete is busy you are mistaken. The place is super laid back, with lots of great locals. As for people "hasseling" you for cab rides, buying things etc. Have you been to any other third world countries where it's any different? And prostitutes giving you unwanted attention? come on!! You were probably giving her some sort of "hey baby" eyes or at least checking her out.otherwise she would have left you alone. I've never had any of these problems their. I do agree though that encuentro has great breaks. leave cabarete for the kite boarders, boogie boarders and fat german tourists.
