I cleared there and anchored for a couple days last June.
A little more of a run around than say the Bahamas
, especially if you don't speak Spanish, but overall, I found it reasonably straight forward.
When I was there, there was a guy who delivered fuel
to your boat if you wanted as well as water
and some provisions. A couple restaurants very close, vegetables easy to buy, as well as some basic provisioning
needs. Harbor is very protected. I would not want to arrive there for a first time after dark.
Some people who want a slip and more convenient clearance go to Oceanworld instead, but personally didn't think Luperon was difficult enough to warrant avoiding it for that reason. There's plenty of liveaboards who will be happy to point you in the right direction.
I already had local currency, but seem to recall
a bank and ATM not far down the main street.
