Cabarete's Shopping?

Hello all you Experts/Expats,

Is there any area in Cabarete where we can walk around and look at shops? Or is everything restaurants and bars on the beach?

Would Sosua be better for "boutique--y" type shopping? Or should I forget that type of shopping altogether! I guess could be satisfied with touristy little shops like I saw on Youtube along Sosua beach.

Hi Bobbi,

You can walk on the main street in the center of town. There are plenty of shops; a few are quite nice. You can also go to Sosua for the day. It's only a 15-minute car drive. I don't shop here since I find the prices outrageous, but if I really need something quick and can't wait till my next trip home (US), then I prefer Cabarete than Sosua. At least in Cabarete, some of the boutiques have really nice stuff.

The same stuff on the You Tube from Sosua beach can be found in the shops in Cabarete. It is a long 2-3 block area with bars/restaurants/shops on both sides of the beachside street. Please be careful crossing the street.

If you go on a specific excursion they will take you to a unique shop where they can custom make a statue for you and yours , also other great gifts

I believe it's on the excursion to the waterfall
