Re: Luperon DR

You may want to differentiate experiences of people who have spent a few weeks or month there in the winter from those who have spent an entire 4-5 month summer there.

Small, hot, humid places get old sitting around all summer. You may find yourself in a rut drinking large, cheap Presidentes beginning early and going late. Again, I have no experience with Luperon, but have had 11yrs now of boat experience in hot, humid places for 4-5 months during the summer. For us (only), the conditions have to be one of the following:
1. A cruisable area with some breeze and interesting activities. The San Blas Islands and Windward Islands are examples.
2. A marina with electricity for AC, and a place where interesting inland travel is possible while still based on the boat. The Rio Dulce Guatemala and other parts of Panama are examples.
3. A good marina/yard that you can dump the boat in and go someplace else for much of the summer.
