A typical day

The morning, when there is usually little wind, offers great opportunities to go surf on Encuentro Beach, to do some stand-up paddle at Bozo Beach or go snorkel at the reef.

In the afternoon the trade winds pick up and get reinforced by the thermal effect, which is great news for kiters, windsurfers and sailors. These sports can be practiced anywhere along the beaches of Cabarete, but especially Bozo Beach is an insider’s favourite spot. If needed, there are many places that hire out equipment and schools that give quality lessons at reasonable prices.

In the evening the nightlife gets swinging, which will keep the party-goers amongst you entertained until the early morning hours.
