    The cold weather in NA has pushed many to find a nice tropical destination

    yes Robbiee it is the same all over the DR . I have never seen so many tourists in Zona Colonial and I am told that Bayahibe is going along very well ..I suppose if we read and believed all the statistics on tourism , we would not be surprised because there has been a good increase in the numbers ..and also in the number of cruise boats coming here . Personally I am quite glad when summer comes around and we are not surrounded by tourists .

    Keep in mind that every year after tourist season, people mention how few tourists there are. We are in tourist season now up until April regarding snow birds. In Cabarete, the kite surfers who want the best winds will come in the summer time, so we actually have two high seasons in Cabarete with winter being more people normally than summer.

    It's the weather in Canada and the US that's done it, not any great remarkable change in the "wondairs" of the DR. The exchange rate favors NorteAmericanos, too......

    When I got here, Sosua did not seem to be dominated by North Americans. This year is perhaps a bit better than recent years, but still not as good as the past for the North Coast.
