    There probably are a couple of places to stay...but they do not come to mind...
    You could stay in Santiago, it is not all that far away...

    Or you could go and explore and report back here what you discover...might be interesting...

    I stayed in a hotel about 10 years ago in Montecristi and I thought it was great. It had a great restaurant too and I had the best lobster I've eaten here. I can't remember the name but I remember it was downtown .

    Thanks for all replies.
    It seems there are beautiful cayos about 3-6 km off shore Monte Cristi called Cayos de los 7 hermanos - does anyone know more about visiting them, which one has the nicest beaches, which offers any shadow, how much the locals ask to bring you there by boat etc.?

    [FONT="Arial"]Yes, there are good hotels in Monte-Christi; one of them used to be Leonidas Trujillo summer mansion and has been converted into a hotel.

    It is a bit isolated from Monte-Cristi proper ( about 8 - 10 minute drive). I just do not recall the name but is next door to a large restaurant on seashore.
