I heard Boca Chica HAD waves. but that was before the great 21st century wave blight.
I got ya man. DR is a fickle spot however it can fire. I suggest staying in encuentro to start. There are some nice spots to stay within walking distance to the main beach break. It's a busy break but there are plenty of peaks to grab if there is swell. Usually by 10 it's wind blown. Cabarete is a 15 min moto ride to the east that is good for partying, eating, groceries, but I wouldn't suggest staying in town. It's a extreme tourist crazy hustle. There are really fun spots all along the north coast as you head east. Iam not going to tell you where but I will tell you to get in the water, listen to the chatter and you will find some gems with only a few heads on them. Enjoy

^^ yea Cabarete has some good waves, but is a touristy town, and faces right into the trade winds that come up every day by late morning and shred up the swell. Rio San Juan is a mellower small city about an hours drive up the coast and has some waves that don't get blown out as badly.
