I hope that I have not missed you yet! My husband was shot at this condo unit in February 2012 during a robbery at a condo beside ours. There is "not" 24 hour security and it is "not" 15 minutes out of Cabarete. The security guard arrived at 6:00 pm. and slept most of the time. He carried a stun gun! It is a 45-60 minute walk to Cabarete. Car rentals are $30-35 a day so pencil that into your expenses. All the resorts around this condo are bankrupt and therefore very dark and dangerous. The owner of the condo unit is 100% responsible for the shooting of my husband. This is not the first time that this condo unit has been robbed. Please be very careful.
The people of the little shops, lady's who wanna do your hair, streetsellers and all the other who wanna sell you something will pull you in their shops. But once you have bought something....well you made a friend for a livetime.
me and my friends joined a group of guys to hang out for the evening. were up in the guys' room playing cards and drinking beer. we heard a scream. a trail of ten of us ran down three flights of stairs to see what was wrong. a girl had been taking a nap with the lights out. her friend had left the room. she was getting ready to take a shower. someone was trying to open her back patio sliding glass door. she freaked and started screaming. the guys went out back. we looked all around and never saw anybody. for all we know, it was someone trying to get into the wrong room. we stayed with her awhile until she calmed down and felt safe. i think it helped that we responded so quickly. two doors down two french canadian guys were chilling out, watching tv. they said they were in their room and didn't see anyone either. they probably just weren't paying attention and didn't notice. i saw they were playing backgammon. i joined them for a game before returning to play cards with the rest of them. these were the two who later told me they only had one set of silverware for the two of them in their room.
