Suggestions / Advice for a trip to Cabarete, Dominican Republic?

I'm heading to Cabarete, Dominican Republic, Sep 24 for a month. Will be staying on Kite Beach. Never been to the DR before. Suggestions? Advice? I'll be cat-sitting so no overnight trips, but pretty adventurous and not a picky eater. (I'll have a private local vegetarian chef for my stay as well so if there are local dishes you suggest I request, let me know.) Thanks!

Renting A Car Internationally

InternationalCarRentalFilter In May, the girlfriend and I will be going to the Domincan Republic, flying into Santiago, DR courtesy of cheap JetBlue tickets. We plan to rent a car (she is Dominican/Puerto Rican and speaks Spanish fluently) so we wanted to rent a car to see all the country that we could (we shy away from tourist places). Its the first time shes been there so its sort of a time when she really wants to see her country. I've never rented a car internationally before. How can I keep this as cheap as possible?
