PLEASE NOTE: if you looking for the international school in Cabrera please go to one of their sites here: their Facebook page or their other site. I'm not affiliated with them in any way, and the stuff below only relates to expat businesses in the northern area of the Dominican Republic and my future plans for this site.
I am in the process of building a site related to Cabrera, Sosua and other expat retiree areas of the Dominican Republic's north coast region. I hope to have listings of businesses for all of these cities including Puerto Plata, Cabarete and others.
Quality of workmanshihp, reliability and transaparency in business dealings are areas where expats could really lend a hand in terms of improvement. One complaint many expats have regarding doing any kind of business there is that the locals often take the easiest, cheapest, and most short-term path towards creating a product or service. They don't give sufficient consideration to the long-term benefits of truly serving your customer, and including when his or her back is turned. That is, when the customer can't engage in proper quality control or inspection does the business owner give his all to deliver good value.
I would be thrilled if you had a quick gander at my main Santo Domingo Tech support and web developement website. Feel free to get in touch with me at any time there. Cabrera, Cabarete, Sosua and Puerto Plata are all great places for building a website: it could be a hotel, car repair or a network or networking even. You may need a small business network support engineer. You may also want your expat small business in the Dominican Republic to be found by others online. Website marketing for the Dominican Republic can be accoplished by "you're average Joe" or a software engineer who's taken it as his goal to live long-term in the Dominican Republic.
