We were spared by both Irma and Maria (aside from debris, a few down palm trees, some broken glass doors, etc.). Cabarete beach has been cleaned and all businesses are open since Friday/Saturday.

If you have Facebook, you can see that by yourself: photos posted by Iguana Mama Adventure Tours showing how Cabarete beach looks like now, after the hurricanes: https:/…10155244159744405

Thanks for the update. I've been going to Cabarate since 2000. Although it saddens me to see all the new construction, I guess that's the price of success. Might have to find a more remote place - although not sure I could live without Janet's !!

Does anyone know how beach Imbert faired along with all the buildings directly on that beach? I hear that the the beach opposite to Infiniti blue resort has disappeared. Does anyone know if this is true? Thanks.

Never heard of that beach until you mentioned it in a different post. You said your parents rented in Residencial Hispaniola in Sosua (not Cabarete, which this thread is about) That's not on the beach. It's a few blocks up the hill on the other side of Highway 5. Closest beach is Sosua beach.

Yes, there was a comment on a newspaper of a newer beach (can't remember which one now) that had lost quite a bit of the sand area. But no one knows if that's permanent or it'll come back. It happens all the time.

Just to confirm, what I posted above about beach erosion, that was in Playa Alicia, and it was reported 4 days ago on a different site.

Yes it is Playa Alicia next to the Casa Marina hotel that lost about 50% or more of it's width. Hopefully it will build back up. Remember 12 years ago there was no beach there. Mother nature gives and takes away as she deems fit.

Hello, we have never been to this area. Any tips regarding airport to use from America, any bnb's, transportation, safety and beach conditions? Thanks, we are an older couple wanting to celebrate our retirement.

We fly in and out of both depending on airfare. Many times for the two of us cheaper to use STI (Santiago) even with the $100 cab fare.

As for places to rent look at the vacation rental tab on the top of the page as a good start.

Safety....use our normal common sense, don't flash money or jewels and you will be fine.

The beach is beautiful.
