Additional Location Information

Cabarete is a small, laid-back Caribbean beach village. It's a perfect tropical vacation spot. With its charming, hip ambiance and a combination of relaxed and adventurous lifestyles, most visitors can barely resist the spontaneous temptation of extending their stay and even move here permanently like we did.
One of the biggest sports on the North Coast is surfing. Cabarete also hosts the World Kite Surfing Championships every year. The area is well known as a world class kite surfing destination and has been ranked among the world's best. The natural conditions make Cabarete a preferred beach by kite surfers the world over. Several kite surfing schools are located right on the beach for those who want to perfect their skills or take up this extreme sport.
Diving is also very popular near Sosua. In this area you will find reefs, canyons, shipwrecks, and gardens. Average water temperatures are about 80 degrees, and dive depths are usually 50 to 130 feet. The area of Playa Grande, about an hour and a half away, also features the Gri Gri lagoon for snorkeling.
A colorful historical story of one shipwreck is the Concepción. The North Coast tossed this Spanish galleon into the Silver Banks about 60 nautical miles from Puerto Plata. The ship carried a cargo of freshly minted silver coins. An American with British support recovered about 69,000 pounds of it in 1689. It was not until 1979 that an American teamed up with the Dominican government to recover tons of silver that remained (they split the findings 50/50).
During the first 3 months of each year thousands of humpback whales migrate to the waters of the Dominican Republic each winter to mate and give birth. One of these gathering places is Samana Bay. More than 1,500 humpbacks visit the bay, with as many as 300 present at any given time during mating season. The World Wildlife Fund considers Samana Bay one of the best places in the world to watch whales. The outer bay is where you might find aggressive males competing for the favors of willing females and the sheltered inner bay is one of the most important humpback nurseries in the world.
Puerto Plata is the ideal location for a great sport fishing vacation. Boats, gear and great service from friendly English speaking crews is what you'll find here. The catch: Blue Marlin July - September, White Marlin April - June, Mahi Mahi October - March, Wahoo October - January, Sailfish October - March.
This is a tour that should not be missed during your stay. Located on the top of Mount Isabel this cable car offers you the beautiful panoramic ocean view and surrounding areas of Puerto Plata. It is one of the picturesque and most impressive excursions that can found in Dominican Republic. On top of the mountain you will find botanical gardens, a statue of Christ (similar to the one in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), a restaurant and several souvenir shops.
