Cabarete is a charming town on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic. It is famous particularly for kitesurfing and windsurfing. Cabarete is considered one of the best places to practice these sports in the Caribbean. Many championship events are held here during the year which attract large numbers of well-known aficionados and supporters.
One of the attractions is the coral reef that shelters the bay from the full force of the Atlantic Ocean. Another is the trade winds that provide the impetus for these sports. An interesting phenomenon is that early in the day the winds are lighter, making it ideal for beginners to learn safely. As the day progresses winds strengthen and that is when the experienced enthusiasts can display their skills to the full.
Although famous as a watersport center that is not the only reason to come to Cabarete. The town is very near the airport at Puerto Plata so arriving at your vacation rental is both quick and not expensive. 20 minutes or so will see you in your accommodation and ready to enjoy your holiday.
There are many different types of activities to enjoy during your stay. Many you will find on our Activities Page. But if you are just looking to relax and enjoy a break away from the hectic routine of your daily life, that is also an option.
Dining in or out
If you are staying in a condo rental or vacation villa, cooking may not be one of the activities you will want to pursue. In which case you will be delighted to know that Cabrera offers a very wide selection of dining options. From traditional Dominican fare to Japanese Sushi, almost any style of cuisine can be found here. Mexican, Chinese, Indian, along with burgers, steaks and fish dishes of every description. The East end of Cabarete Beach has a varied selection of restaurants, but if you prefer to eat-in many now offer a delivery service.
For the younger visitors or even the young at heart, there is an exceptionally good nightlife also available. Many of the beachfront restaurants convert into nightclubs and discos as the evening wears on. Music from Dominican merengue and bachata mixed with popular international music invites everyone onto the floors to dance the night away, or at least until 3 am!
If noisy nightlife is not your cup of tea, don’t worry! Most of the vacation condos and resorts are sufficiently far enough away not to be disturbed and other venues closer to a resort must have soundproofing after midnight or cease playing music.
Cabarete does offer a wide and varied choice for your vacation and our condos and villas are chosen for your comfort and enjoyment of all the facilities. Close enough to the town to be easily accessible but located where you can enjoy peaceful nights in secure surroundings. Check out our wide selection of vacation condos and holiday villas and book your next vacation in paradise.
