The difference in the people that go there vs the drunks in Punta Cana was like night and day. So much more relaxing without all the riff raff. The Atlantic Coast really is where its at.

    That is all-
    The location here is very nice but a distance outside of LT. If you want to stay closer to the village stay at the Hotel Colibri or Hotel Alisei on Playa Ballenas. This is the other side of town from where you were but nicer beaches. These however are not A-I like the Bahia Principe.

    Not sure if I can get out that way again without some major persuasion. We went once to LT and my wife was not very impressed. I guess I didn't see the spots everyone seems to like.

    Then we went to see friends who stopped on a cruise at La Galleras and we had planned to spend the night. She got creeped out by the place so we headed back to Cabarete that same day.

    Default Creeped out?

    Interesting. Was it las galeras itself that 'creeped her out' or was it the place you stayed in lg?

    But yes the rest of the year its very quiet and Chill ...
    Fishermans Village area is my absolute favorite area to hang out , great Restaurants there , but prefer to stay in Playa Bonita area as its even more chill but completely dead at night . Mostly all well to do Dominicans stay at those quiet Hotels , some NY Doms.. was never loud around the Pool .. maybe we got lucky.
    If you like Las Terrenas , you must try Las Galeras,, even more relaxing and chill . Have not found a better place yet .
    I spent my first Semana Santa in LT in April, it was not as bad as I heard. Outside of Punta Popy and Las Ballenas, crowd were manageable and more behaved. But, yes, it was crowded.

    Now, I wasn't as lucky as you, Dom from the capital rented a villa in our residencia. Reggaeton and Dominican rap for 2 days straight while smoking hookah in the shared pool, felt like a video. I cried tears of joy when they left, ready to listen to Verdi

    Las Galeras is even more beautiful than LT, just a little too quiet for me.

    I wish it was less French too as well (and I am French ), but there are more and more people from other nationalities compared to a few years back (but Italian and French remain the majority)

    This could be developed into a Monty Python-like script a la ... bleeding lizard in the bidet ... German businessmen doing pyramids in the pool ...

    Can I use it in my (yet to be written) best-selling novel?

    wbr

    You mean you don't enjoy the company of the "all you can eat and drink until I pass out" crowd and listening to them blame it on the Dominican food as they lounge their 40 pound overweight bodies by the pool talking about waxing their pick up truck and chev camero which is parked next to their rotting camper that they used 15 years ago at a KOA camp ground near a sewage creek in Pennsylvania
