The Resort Cabarete has Erupted

Aug 17, 2007
In the Dominican Republic the resort Cabarete has burst, exploded and erupted into being the fastest developing resort on the north coast. Only a twenty five minute ride away from Gregorio Luperon International Airport in an easterly direction prepare yourself for the surfing and kite boarding Mecca in the whole of the West Indies.

The towns development owes everything to this addictive sport when the legendary windsurfer Jean Laporte put Cabarete on the map back in 1984 after he discovered its near perfect surfing conditions. Benefiting from the trade winds most of the year round Cabaretes wind is usually light in the morning and then building up in the afternoon where you will see a multitude of kite boarders doing their thing out on the ocean.

Having hosted the World Windsurfing Championships its reputation as a dedicated surf town is firmly established and shows as year after year the same surfers return bringing new friends and like minded people along the way.

The usual modes of transport available like small mini vans and buses and private taxi cabs. Get yourself about as some of the best waves for surfing are just on the outskirts of Cabarete you will find Playa Encuentro Beach with die hard surfers waiting for the light to break in the wee early dawn hours.

The town itself is only about one km in length and is split along the high street. On the beach side there are a multitude of surf schools, equipment rental shops, souvenir shops, beach facing bars and restaurants and a handful of small hotels. On the road side one will find pretty much the same thing, included in the town there are pharmacies, a world class bakery, little stalls selling fresh produce and fruits, small supermarkets, photography shops, medical centre and internet cafes.

Restaurants range from sushi, pizzas, veggie only, seafood, homemade soups and steaks to typical Dominican food.

Plenty of bar and clubs playing dance music till the sun comes up again and some of the bars like O Shays have live music over the weekend or Lax will have a DJ polishing his vinyl for you all.

Apart from surfing and boogie boarding, kite boarding and snorkelling Cabarette offers some of the best mountain bike trails in the Dominican Republic in El Choco, kayaking and canoeing, repelling and hiking are all available here in the surrounding countryside too.

The climate is hot hot hot.
