The village of Cabarete is spread out across the center of a gorgeous, semi-circular beach. We are a ten-minute walk from the heart of the international town of Cabarete with its quaint restaurants, casual and fine dining, a casino and its infamous nightlife. The distance to Cabarete is close enough for convenience but just the right distance away for enjoying the tranquility that Bahia de Arena offers. You may have heard a lot about the Dominican Republic lately in the New York Times, CNN and many other nationally syndicated publications, it is being touted as the next undiscovered hotspot. Well I can tell you that it is being discovered and tourism is booming but it is still very affordable and not crowded.
Nestled amid Cuba, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico in the heart of the Caribbean archipelago, the island of Hispaniola (Little Spain) is divided between Haiti, on the westernmost third of the island, and the Dominican Republic, which has a lush landmass about the size of Vermont and New Hampshire combined. In the Dominican interior, the fertile Valley of Cibao (rich sugarcane country) ends its upward sweep at Pico Duarte, the highest mountain peak in the West Indies, which soars to 3,125m (10,417 ft.).
Much of what Columbus first sighted still remains in a natural, unspoiled condition. One-third of the Dominican Republic's 1,401km (870-mile) coastline is devoted to beaches. Columbus sighted its coral-edged Caribbean coastline on his first voyage to the New World and pronounced: 'There is no more beautiful island in the world.' The first permanent European settlement in the New World was on November 7, 1493, and its ruins still remain near Montecristi in the northeast part of the island.
