RECOMENDATIONS FOR ACTIVITIES AND TOURS:
DAY 1; HORSEBACK RIDING BEACH AND MOUNTAINS
If you are renting for a week, a horseback ride on the beach is a nice way to start your vacation, followed by an afternoon in the pool.
DAY 2; BEACH TOUR DAY
Another fantastic way to spend the day is to hire a taxi to do a beach tour. This brings you to several very interesting and fun places including a small plantation, a hidden waterfall where you can watch the locals dive from very high perches, The Blue Lagoon, where you can zip line off a cliff and dive into a 70' deep cenote. At the same stop, you can explore an ancient cave.
After the zip lining and swimming, it;s time for lunch on Playa Grande Beach. This beach has been voted as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! The fresh seafood and chicken on the menu and drinks including coco locos and pina coladas will leave you ready to continue exploring one or two more beaches. I recommend Playa Diamonte where you can find fresh water sulphur springs bubbling up from the sand on the beach and can walk out 300 yards and still be in waste deep calm clear water. Another beautiful beach is Playa Calleton.
DAY 3; MONKEY JUNGLE ZIP LINING
Monkey Jungle is a short 30 minute ride from the condo.
A Taxi can take you there in his van (up to 6).
They have a pretty intense zip line circuit. They also have a really cool monkey habitat where you can feed the small monkeys as they sit on your shoulders and heads and eat out of your hand! If you don't want to zipline, you can just do the monkey jungle and sit at the bar to wait for the zip liners to return.
DAY 4; CABARETE BEACH MASSAGE AND SHOPPING
A day at Cabarete beach is a very relaxing way to pass a day in this wonderful beach town. Many of the establishments will not charge you to use their beach chairs if you buy a drink or snack from them. While on the beach, there are vendors in blue shirts that are licensed to give massages and pedicures on the beach.
It's a must to have an on beach massage followed by a mani-pedi while drinking a cold beer or pina colada. Very relaxing indeed! There are also many shops to explore in town if you need a break from the beach.
DAY 5; PRIVATE CHEF AT CONDO AND MASSAGE
If you are tired of having fun away from the condo, hire our private chef to indulge you with their fantastic meals throughout the day and night. They will meet you the day before to prepare the menu for the next day and stock the fridge with groceries necessary to prepare breakfast the next morning. After breakfast, they will prepare the menu you desire for lunch and dinner then go shopping. This is beyond any doubt most guest's favorite experience during their stay! If you want the ultimate in relaxation, couple the chef experience with a full day of massages, manicures and pedicures poolside or on the beach and you are in for a real treat.
DAY 6; SOSUA BEACH AND PUERTO PLATA CABLE CAR
A morning ride into Puerto Plata to take the cable car to the top of Isabella del Torres is a memorable experience. The views from the top of the mountain are breathtaking! There are also trails and gardens that you explore on top, as well as a little restaurant.
After the cable car, ask your taxi driver to take you to the old fort where you can learn a little history about the area. Then, on to the Amber museum.
After the Amber Museum, a little snorkelling and lunch at Sosua Beach will be a great way to wrap up your week. The shopping at Sosua Beach is much more affordable than in Cabarete.
Other suggestions that can be explored in addition to or instead of those listed above are Ocean World, 27 Waterfalls, a visit to Santo Domingo, quad tour of the mountains and beach, mountain biking, kite surfing, surfing, sailing, deep sea fishing, catamaran snorkeling, night out in Sosua and Cabarete, UFO Museum, Brugal Rum factory tour, Rio San Juan Boat Ride..........The options are endless. You can even climb the tallest peak in the Caribbean; Pico Duarte!

We stayed at the condo the whole month of February 2016. The view from the balcony was stunning. Located oceanfront, we could see the beach and hear the waves all the time. The condo has all the amenities, it is not luxirious but we had everything we needed. We really enjoyed our walks on the endless beach. The grocery store is a 30 minute walk on the beach. Public transport is available at the entrance of the condo complex. Great location! We will return for sure!
Beautiful view of the Ocean/beach from the balcony, spent most our time there in the comfortable rocking chairs listening to the surf and watching the ocean waves roll in. Ocean temps were 80+ degrees F and the average daytime highs were also.
Great group of people their felt like a big family. Loved Cabarete and walked there on the beach almost every day. Loved Susua even better don't miss it. Didn't need car and mainly used the Guagua, but hang on its a wild ride.
We initially had some issues with the A/C and other minor things but the owner resolved them quickly.
We would go back.
Me and my fiance set aside a month to explore the Dominican Republic and get in
some kite boarding. The condo was the perfect base to do both.
The surf and wind directly in front of the condo were perfect for boarding; couldn't have been any more convenient!
The town of Cabarete; only a 5 minute drive, offered some of the best restaurants and bars that I have ever experienced in a Caribbean beach town.
The complex is quiet and reserved with beautiful landscaping and very nice residents; most from the USA and Canada.
The condo was very well maintained. It has a nice bamboo king size bed with a very comfy large sofa. The balcony offers a fantastic oceanfront view and view of the very large pool.
The maid comes once/week and is very thorough.
Frank was always available by email to answer any questions.
We look forward to a return to Cabarete.
