Long gone are the days when Cabarete was an undiscovered farming village. This once-sleepy town is now the windsurfing and kiteboarding hub of the Dominican Republic, and adventurous tourists head to the destination to catch some of the country’s best thrills. Though you won’t find the bustling city atmosphere of Puerto Plata or the historical sights of Santo Domingo, Cabarete vacations have a refreshing charm: the perfect combination of off-the-beaten-path gem and modern tourist hotspot.
The city offers several places to shop for souvenirs and sample the local cuisine, but its beaches tend to steal the show. Playa Cabarete is the most the central, and it is here that you’ll find the widest range of Cabarete all inclusive resorts, locally owned restaurants and laid-back pubs. This beach is also a fantastic place to test your windsurfing skills; the water conditions make it ideal for the activity, and beginners can get their bearings at the downwind Bozo Beach.
Situated just west of Playa Cabarate is Kite Beach. The name says it all; this spot is a mecca for kiteboarders, and both first-timers and old pros come here to fly through the wind. Nearby Playa Encuentro has a similar following, but it's generally better for traditional wave riding.
Though Cabarete vacation packages put you in the center of the surfing, boarding and fishing action, you’ll need to head to the crystalline waters of nearby Sousa to get a proper scuba diving experience. Prefer to spend your Cabarete vacation on drier land? Venture a few miles beyond the city center to find the best mountain biking trails and dirt biking paths, or drive to Playa Dorada and Playa Grande to play a few rounds at the championship golf courses.
Whether you’re searching for a canoeing adventure or want to get a windsurfing lesson from a local expert, Cabarete all inclusive deals let you uncover the city’s most iconic experiences. Book your trip, grab your board, and get ready for a Dominican Republic journey like none other. Trust us: Cabarete is the island’s coolest place to get your adrenaline pumping.
