Cabarete is a great beach town with five different beaches, good eats, a lively bar scene, and tons of expats and vacationers who flock to the town year-round. There are lots of hotels to choose from, though if you're looking for an all-inclusive the pickings are slim.
The main reason people to Cabarete are the windsports--this happens to be one of the best places in the world to kiteboard and windsurf. There are a bunch of kiteboarding/windsurf schools in town--they're impossible to miss--most charging $60-70 per hour for private instruction.
Cabarete is located on the north side of the island, a short ride by gua gua or taxi from Sosua (strangely, there is no bus service directly to town).Recommended for:

Cabarete is the place to kite board in the Dominican Republic! The wind is awesome most of the year and the beach is the perfect venue for all levels of boarders. There are various teaching and rental outfits right on the beach.

It is my favorite place in the Dominican Republic, its the ease to relax that makes this place perfect. To put it this way, I feel like I leave the country when I'm here. The place is surrounded by lovely people that drive positive vibrations all around the place, not just dominicans, but people from different corners of the world that have stayed in this little paradise. It's a great destination if don't dare to say the best for extreme sports enthusiasts. This is where Kiteboarding was born, so just hit the beach and you won't have to look far if you want to Kite surf. If you like skateboarding, try the Extreme hotel, you don't have to necessary be staying there, to use the skate amenities you can just go to the ramp (pool) skate and hang. If you're a long boarder, there are a couple of rural paths, actually very nice roads, where you can appreciate nature at a speed only you can attain by tapping into your inner-self, wind, and your longboard. The Night Life is @ the beach, just hit it, and you'll see the different ambiences and bars Cabarete has to offer!

Unique seaside town in the North of Dominican Republic, basically a crescent shaped bay with good wind for kite surfing and other water sports. Cabarete is a lifestyle in its own, lots of restaurants, pubs and discos combined with a jaw dropping scenery that draws people from all over the world, from all ages between 18-65.
