Beginner Surfing in DR in May - Macao?

« on: April 03 2009 10:04:00 »

I'm thinking of heading to Punta Cana with some friends of mine at the beginning of May to learn how to surf.  I understand that Macao is the closest surfing location to Punta Cana.  Is there a general consensus that Macao is a good beginner location?  I've already read that board rental there seems to be rare, which adds an extra hassle.  If not Macao, is there a better location for beginner surfers in early May?  This includes anywhere in DR as well as other places in Central America.  Thanks!

The center of surfing on the north coast of the DR is definitely Encuentro close to Cabarete. Rentals and lessons are widely available.
