Cabarete is a small, laid-back Caribbean beach village located only 20 minutes away from the Puerto Plata International Airport on the northern shore of the Dominican Republic. Although we only have one main street, it is enough to provide you with endless adventures during the day and a non-stop dance party at night! After all, traditionally music and sport are of great importance in the Dominican culture, with baseball as the national pastime, and Merengue and Bachata as the national dance and music.
In more modern times (the past 15 or so years) we have also earned the right to claim the title of action-sport capital of the Caribbean. That is because each of our 5 main beaches, our river, and our lagoon provides ideal conditions for some sort of watersport. From windsurfing, kiteboarding, and sailing, to surfing, SUP, and even kayaking, everyone is guaranteed to enjoy the water just the way they like it.
And that’s not all! Our town also offers beautiful mountains and a lush countryside that are ideal for hiking, mountain biking, and riding dirt bikes.
But no matter what, with a refreshing mix of locals and ex-pats, vacationers will experience a melting pot of cultures, languages, and food in our humble little town. Ideal for families, couples, and solo travelers alike, almost everyone who visits finds a way to extend their stay…or just never go home. It’s truly a place that will keep a little piece of your heart forever.
