Windsurfing: The Classic Cabarete Activity
Cabarete, originally famed for windsurfing, continues to allure enthusiasts. Advanced sailors relish the wave challenges, while beginners find the calm inside the upper windsurfing (and now foiling zone) of Cabarete’s waters easy and inviting. A couple windsurfing schools are still going strong and offer lessons and rentals. Easily explore the options upon arrival. The windsurfing schools are a 5-10 minute walk by beach. They have great restaurants and bars at the schools and all around in the heart of downtown Cabarete.
Canyoneering Adventures in Dominican Republic
For thrill-seekers like anyone interested in kiteboarding or wing-foiling, canyoneering in the local river promises exhilaration. Together with our friends from Kayak River Adventures you’ll be out in the wilderness rappelling waterfalls, diving into freshwater pools, jumping cliffs if you like, and exploring dense forests. It’s a great workout, and extremely beautiful. Wrap up your adventure-filled day and return to Cabarete for an evening of sunset kitesurfing. Another option is the 27 Waterfalls of Damajagua (27 Charcos) just past Puerto Plata, the base camp opens at 8am so you can leave Cabarete at 7am and be back for a 1pm kite or wing lesson with LEK.
