Angry Luperon Theft

Just want to let other cruisers know to be very careful with belongings in Luperon right now. There have been a couple of other thefts but last night, we had our dinghy motor stolen off the dinghy. It was locked but not good enough and they tried to take the whole dinghy but that lock system was better. Sure has changed my good opinion about this place!

Re: Luperon Theft

In 2009,while in Luperon, I seen a small coastal vessal with over a dozen outboards arranged in brackets along its topside. Mentioning this to officials resulted in a shurg.

When in Santa Domingo in 2002 the boat next to me, med-tied to quay, left their shoes and sandles on the dock next to their stearn. In the morning they were gone.
