About Us

Cabarete Eco Hostel – where not only your dreams are green

The Eco Hostel in Cabarete was born from our devotion to all things green, and our dream to offer true eco-tourism in the Dominican Republic. Of course, many people visit our island to take advantage of the never-ending expanses of white sands; to surf, dive or frolic in the azure waters of the warm ocean and to bask beneath the soothing rays of tropical sun. But for us, Cabarete also offers something a little different. Home to possibly one of the most unique, unspoilt and diverse ecosystems on the planet, we’ve discovered that this is the perfect destination to reconnect and find your true self through the power of nature.

Boasting 19 national parks, 32 national monuments, six wildlife reserves and two marine sanctuaries, the Dominican Republic is the incredible proof of quite how breath-taking Mother Nature really is. And with over 20 percent of the total land area of the country being afforded government protection and preservation, this amazing array of life is available for you to experience first-hand.

Being a small and personally run eco-destination, we’re able to offer highly personalized accommodation options, including durations from a single day through as long as you’d like to stay. We can cater for everyone, providing budget eco-accommodation for solo-travelers, couples, families and larger groups as well – meaning everyone can take advantage of our peaceful surroundings, and the chance to de-stress and reconnect through nature.

Hand In Hand With Mother Earth

We feel privileged to be able to offer a truly ecologically friendly accommodation that is literally a stone’s throw from the town of Cabarete itself. Directly next to one of the national parks on the north shore of the Dominican Republic, Cabarete Eco Hostel is the perfect place for those looking to be at one with nature and know that their accommodation isn’t literally ‘costing the earth!’

Our hostel is the ideal budget choice for eco-travelers and eco-tourists who appreciate the wonders of this planet we inhabit. Surrounded by a tropical garden that remains exactly as nature created it thousands of years ago, Cabarete Eco Hostel is on the edge of a stunning lagoon that is teeming with fish and wildlife.

A lifetime away from the faceless world of high-rise hotels and all-inclusive resorts, at Cabarete Eco Hostel you can relax and succumb to the serenity of your surroundings. Wake in the morning to the cries of birds as they swoop from the jungle; rest awhile shaded by trees and plants that have existed on this magical island long before the destructive march of man stepped foot upon the earth. Here, on the north shore of the Dominican Republic, our carefully constructed eco-destination will truly allow your natural primeval instincts to be bathed, soothed and re-awoken by the power of Mother Nature.

Existing With The Environment, Not Fighting Against It

Every part of Cabarete Eco Hostel has been produced and exists in harmony with nature; from our traditionally built rooms that are created using only the materials nature provided, through to our bar and restaurant at the edge of the lagoon and our penchant for using time proven methods and a local workforce. Here you’ll experience the full warmth of a Caribbean welcome, traditional dishes and the knowledge that everything is produced and prepared in a safe, ethical and eco-friendly manner.

Our next goal for Cabarete Eco Hostel, once we have enough guests to sustain it, is to install a photovoltaic solar system meaning that all of our electricity and water heating will be powered by the most natural source available – sunlight!

Ecological and Economical

So if you yearn to vacation in a place that’s as ecologically aware as you are, along with the chance to truly retreat into nature, then Cabarete Eco Hostel would love to welcome you. For a truly authentic, eco-Caribbean experience, far from the hullabaloo of the 21st century tourist trail – our little piece of paradise awaits. If you long to find the Dominican Republic that exists away from the tourist guide books, and still genuinely as nature intended, then this is truly your ‘paradise found.’
