Cabarete Information

Welcome to the Adventure Sports Capital of the Caribbean

After 20 years on Cabarete Beach, we have become Cabarete information experts, and we love sharing that information with the world! We have worked hard to make our website a place where you can quickly get a feel for not only what our condo rentals have to offer, but also what our town has to offer. After all, we don’t expect that you will come to the Dominican Republic and spend most of your time in the condo.

The first thing you should know is that they call Cabarete the Adventure Sports Capital of the Caribbean for a good reason. For more than 30 years, windsurfers, kitesurfers, surfers, and standup paddle boarders have flocked to our tiny town. That’s because the five main beaches of Cabarete provide ideal conditions for every one of those sports. We have glassy waves in the mornings, side-onshore winds in the afternoons, tons of sunshine, and warm water year round.

Even if water sports aren’t your thing, we also have mountains, rivers, and waterfalls – oh my! You’ll undoubtedly find at least a million fun things to do in Cabarete. So think outside of the all-inclusive box and use our wealth of Cabarete information to its fullest. Check some things off your bucket list. If all else fails, feel free to contact us via email or visit us in the office, and we will help you organize anything your little adventurous heart desires. #adventuremoreplanless
