Cabrera has a small town feel but with a very diverse population of both Dominicans as well as seasonal foreigners. There are various amenities such as parks, public transportation, farmers markets, grocery stores, restaurants, clinics, and pharmacies right here in town, and we are located between two larger cities. The vibrant community and beautiful surroundings also make everyday seems like the perfect getaway. The local attractions include numerous beaches, lagoons, and rivers, but the opportunity to immerse yourself in the local culture is the most rewarding part of living here. In the past, our teachers have participated in youth groups, humane society projects, community recycling/clean-ups, and fine arts workshops and camps.
