6 Reasons Cabarete is Awesome for Family Vacations
Fun in the sun is just the beginning!
Quality family time can be tricky with the stresses of everyday life. Vacations provide the perfect escape allowing you to focus on what’s truly important. Whether your family is older, younger, living on opposite sides of the world, Cabarete offers the perfect location for family time, reuniting and relaxing.
We often get bogged down with daily life, school runs, appointments, work and with time being limited, it’s hard to wind down with the family. Here in Cabarete, there is no schedule, no distractions, just you, the family and the beautiful beaches of Cabarete. A family vacation gives you time to appreciate the little things and magical moments, like watching the sunrise and sunset as a family.
Something For Everyone
Relaxing and being the entertainer do not always go hand in hand! But have no fear! There is a huge range of activities for the adventurers, fitness fanatics, water babies, and relaxers alike! Take the family on an adventure into the mountains to gaze at the spectacular views from the Teleferico Cable Car in Puerto Plata, repel down waterfalls, or explore by hoof with horseback rides through fairy-tale rivers and streams! That’s just a few adventures, but there’s still so many on our doorstep! Cabarete is one of the top destinations in the Caribbean for kitesurfing, surfing, and windsurfing thanks to being gifted with consistent trade winds. Professionals and those seeking to delve into this water world, flock to Cabarete every year to practice and learn these exhilarating sports. With a broad range of schools offering tuition and rental, you can learn something new or hone your skills. However, we understand being splashed in the face isn’t for everyone, so you can still keep fit and active off the water with a nice selection of gyms and Yoga classes, or you can even join the circus! If just reading all of that makes you tired, Cabarete spas are the perfect place for you to revitalize, unwind, and have a much-deserved pampering! Trying something new, as a family is a great way to bring everyone closer and make the most of your precious time.
