Cabarete is located on the north coast of Hispaniola, by taxi about 20 minutes east of Puerto Plata (POP) airport. With its proximity to an international Airport it is a great jump off point to visit other Caribbean Islands! I have been to a fair number of them, including Puerto Rico, Cuba, the ABC's, Margarita, Coche and Los Roques, Trinidad and Tobago and Grand Turk to the north of the DR.
The eastern, larger portion of Hispaniola constitutes the Dominican Republic that covers 2/3 of the island with a total from 48,679km2 . The western adjacent country is Haiti. The Dominican Republic has around 9,000,000 inhabitants and receives yearly around 3,000,000 tourists from all over the world.
The Dominican Republic has a stable democracy and presidential elections are held every 4 years .
The official currency is the Dominican Peso. But US dollars and Euro are accepted in many places. It is easy to change money locally. Dominican banks offer accounts in Pesos , USD and Euros.
Cabarete is a small and unique beach town with lots of International travelers and tourists , it's claim to fame; it's one of the 10 best places in the world to windsurf and kitesurf, nearby locations like "El Encuentro" also offer great conditions for surfing.
At night time some of the restaurants turn into discotheques for those who like to dance to the Caribbean rhythm. Most of Cabarete's nightlife revolves around the beach and it's bars and restaurants.
Cabarete is a consummate water-sports resort town!
Sosua is divided into 3 parts . Coming from the airport you hit "Sosua Bajo" first, followed by the old part called "Los Charamicos". In bot of these parts the population is mainly Dominican. The newer part where most of the hotels , restaurants and residential areas are located is called "El Batey". "Los Charamicos" and "El Batey" are connected through the main beach inside of a horseshoe shaped bay.
Cabarete belongs to the province of Puerto Plata. The center of Puerto Plata is around 20 miles west of Sosua, west of the international airport POP. Here you will find commercial centers , big supermarkets, movie theaters and many typical Dominican bars, restaurant and discos .
Other Regions of the Dominican Republic!
Punta Cana and Bavaro
In contrast to the beaches on the Dominican Republic north coast the ones along the east coast, around Punta Cana and Bavaro, are beautifully white and well groomed and the water is classic Caribbean turquoise blue and clear. There is virtually no run off from rivers in this region. These beaches are lined with tall palms, and stretch for mile after mile. Numerous, all-inclusive resorts in this area are like small, self-contained cities. The resort offerings include swimming pools and watersports activities, different restaurant and nightlife options (including casinos), golf courses, spas, tropical gardens and even mini-zoos. All resorts are far from most of local communities, so it requires extra effort to make it a more active or cultural vacation and to get to know the country and its people.
Bayahibe Village, Bayahibe Resort Town
Bayahibe is located just east of Casa de Campo, it is the next (south west) tourist destination to Punta Cana/ Bavaro. You can reach it by a 2 hour drive via the capital city of Higüey. The town itself is more or less a small fishing village surrounded by large vacation resorts. Bayahibe provides one of the entrances to the Parque Nacional del Este and Isla Soana. It is also where you can hire a boat for a ride over to Isla Saona, a 25 by 5 km sized island. This picturesque island is a popular excursion due to its beautiful white sand beach, tall coconut palms and great snorkeling, with occasional sightings of manatees and bottlenose dolphins.
Destination Wedding/ Photography
Punta Cana, Bavaro Beach and Bayahibe have become two of the favored resort locations for Caribbean destination weddings. I work in the beach resorts there as wedding photographer same as here on the north coast.

A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.
Best wide-angle lens? Two steps backward. Look for the 'ah-ha'.
Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.
Henri Cartier Bresson
Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution.
The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.
There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.
