Luperon is known to be the best hurricane hole in the Caribbean. The harbour is well protected from all directions indeed.
The town is not big, with local character. Few locals speak English, and knowing Spanish would definitely help on Dominican Republic.
The locally grown fruits are amazingly tasteful, especially mangos.
There seem to have more active cruising life here in the past, now it's faded. Quite few North American and European expats settled here.
Staying here for couple weeks, exploring the area and taking some onshore trips.
