I'm planning a trip to DR in May and am wondering what beach to stay on?  What are the main differences between Encuentro, Bozo, Cabarete, etc?  I would like to stay on the beach but still not be too far from the nightlife area.  I also want to stay on a beach that's good for regular surfing, not necessarily just kite-surfing.  Also I'm looking for something not too pricey... any suggestions would be highly appreciated!

RE: hotels/beaches

For regular surfing you have to be at Encuentro. Also for kiting it is great there and no crowds at all. We live there (and have a small hotel) and kite mainly at Encuentro or at Kitebeach. Kitebeach is for kiting and Bozo (Cabarete bay) for windsurfing and Kitesurfing. The wind can be a bit more gusty there than at Kitebeach or Encuentro. I guess if you surf and kite, Encuentro would be the best place for surfing in the mornings and kiting in the afternoons. For the nightlife you grap a motoconcho, taxi or guagua (local bus) and in less than 10 minutes you are standing in the center.
If you need any other info, you can always send me an e-mail.
