Cabarete Eco Hostel- where not only your dreams are green
[singlepic id=324 w=320 h=240 mode=watermark float=left]Two decades ago, Cabarete was just a sleepy fishing village with a typically Caribbean slow pace of life. But the world-class rolling surf soon saw adventurous sports fans come flocking – and today Cabarete is renowned as one of the best destinations for surfing and kite surfing on the planet. However, many people fail to realize is what a wonderful place the north shore of the Dominican Republic is as an eco-destination. And Cabarete Eco Hostel is the perfect location to relax and reconnect with nature, as well as being an ideal base from which to explore the wildlife and beauty of the Dominican Republic.
[singlepic id=381 w=320 h=240 mode=watermark float=right]Thanks to the strong connection of the Dominican people to their surroundings, huge expanses of the country have been afforded government protection and designated as national parks. This has meant that Cabarete and the surrounding area remains to this day one of the most ecologically diverse and naturally abundant places on the planet. Not only do these national parks cover mile upon mile of lush, tropical vegetation, but the government also has seen fit to protect smaller areas in the towns and cities of the island. This means that however close you are to civilization, there’s a tranquil haven close by where it’s possible to leave behind the hustle and bustle of city life, and retreat into the welcoming arms of Mother Earth.
And as we all know, nothing soothes the senses quite like the unique symphony created by the sound of wildlife; the aroma of freshly growing vegetation, the surf pounding rhythmically at the shoreline, all accompanied by the background music of bird song and gentle breezes rippling through the trees.
Eco-Tourism In The Dominican Republic
[singlepic id=394 w=320 h=240 mode=watermark float=left]The north shore of the Dominican Republic offers a multitude of back-to-nature options. But here at Cabarete Eco Hostel we want to show you the ‘secret’ Cabarete – the Cabarete that you won’t find in the pages of any guide book or glossy tourist brochure. Within easy distance of our eco hostel you’ll find deserted hiking trails, crystal clear water thundering from rocky cliffs in exactly the same manner as it’s been doing for the past few thousand years, authentic Dominican Republic traditions and the opportunity to learn about the culture and way of life of the people who inhabit this beautiful island.
Eco-tourism, and in particular, eco-vacations in the Caribbean are words that many tour companies and hotels bandy about freely, without truly getting to the very crux of what an eco-holiday is really about. We at Cabarete Eco Hostel are lucky enough to live amongst what we consider to be one of the abundant eco-systems on the planet – and we want to share our love of the island with you.
[singlepic id=247 w=320 h=240 mode=watermark float=right]Because of our privileged location, we’ve created what we think is the most authentic eco-vacation destination in Cabarete (in fact, if we might be so bold, we think we offer the best eco-tourism in the whole Caribbean!). Everything we at the Cabarete Eco Hostel offer has been designed to have as little impact on the environment as possible – from our green hostel to eco-tours to the food offered in our all-natural, all-organic restaurant.
While being within a few minute’s walk of all the amenities the town of Cabarete has to offer, you’ll be astounded at the tranquility afforded by our lodgings. We know the importance of not only staying at a place where you can truly retreat into nature, but the peace of mind you’ll gain by knowing that our ecological values are the same as yours.
A Destination To Suit All Tastes
[singlepic id=396 w=320 h=240 mode=watermark float=left]One thing you can be sure of when you visit Cabarete as an eco-destination is that you’ll never be short of things to do. Whether your idea of the perfect vacation is lazing beneath a shady palm tree, hiking in the jungle or joining the marine life beneath the surface of the waves – you’re sure to be spoilt for choice.
But the very best thing is that by staying at Cabarete Eco Hostel, you’ll know that you’re doing everything you can to ensure that your carbon footprint is as tiny as possible – and that you’re doing your part to keep this stunning part of the world in the best condition possible so that future generations can also come and enjoy it.
