SURFING + KITESURFING IN
Dominican Republic 

Ride the waves to your heart’s content in the number one wind sports coast of the Caribbean.

 
 
This is a world-class kiteboarding, windsurfing and laser sailing destination due to its warm waters and perfect wind conditions. Cabarete is very popular among the young and adventurous because of the aquatic sports offered on its beach, its famous annual jazz festival each fall and its eclectic bars, cafes, restaurants and shops.
Puerto Plata
Playa Blanca is perfect for kiteboarding enthusiasts. Drop by this Puntacana Resort & Club beach and book your lessons. The beachfront restaurant is popular and nighttime events are frequently held there.
Punta Cana
Small yet photogenic, this white pebble stone beach is most popular with surfers for its big swells and with fishermen who head out daily, while the undertow keeps the swimmers away. It’s worth a stop for a stroll and scenic views of Barahona’s coastline.

The San Pedro Apóstol Cathedral is a beautiful emblem of the city of San Pedro de Macorís.  Recently restored, this neo-Gothic style temple, whose concrete construction dates back to the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, has a rich religious and architectural legacy. You won't be disappointed walking inside to see the artwork, carvings, statues, woodwork and stoned glass.⛪️🔔

Weekend forecast: 100% chance of fun! Gushing rivers, high altitudes, and tropical rainforests overlooking coastlines: zip lining takes on a new meaning in the DR.  At Samaná you’ll find the longest zip line run in the country. Glide in pairs and flip upside-down at 400 feet above the verdant hills of El Valle. This is a great way to take in a panoramic view of the splendid landscape.  What's the most exhilarating activity or sport you've tried?🌴🌞
