Re: Puerto Rico or Cabarete - January kite trip

I would say the wind forecast can be finicky. I never trust it. Usually I wake up in the morning and check the sky. And it can change. Summer is thermal, so winter is storm front which makes it more gusty and less predictable than thermal wind. I wrote all about the wind here. Hopefully it helps mor...

Re: Cabarete this season ?

Hola. I own Dare2fly kite school and have otherwise been here for almost 7 years. The wind has been unpredictable to be honest. Storm season just ended and we had a normal amount of wind, but it has been colder than normal for February. The past two days the wind has been coming from the exact oppos...

Re: Where to live and kite warm water everyday?

Totally agree with Cabarete! I have been here 6 years after coming for a 30 day vacation. Now I own a kite school and restaurant here on kite beach. As mentioned above, there might be better seasonal conditions, but as an overall package, Cabarete wins at most things. Here is info about the wind sea...

Re: Cabarete - Anyone Stayed At....

I've stayed ar all these places: millenium, agualina, palm Beach condos, ocean dream (not UV). In the end it's a matter of personal preference. The descriptions above are pretty accurate. I have young kids (10 and 4) and we ended up purchasing a condo in Ocean Point, the nicest property on kitebeac...

Re: Cabarete - Anyone Stayed At....

Agualina Kite Resort is nice for kids and the beach is best for a kiteboarding vacation www.agualina.com. There is a cozy private grassy lawn and a nice swimming pool. There are sand boxes and lots of kids live next door at Kite Beach Hotel and Kite Beach Condos. I own a condo and live full time at ...

Kite Beach Cabarete Live Streaming Web Cam

I have been living here 6 years and every day I hear someone say that they didn't know what the wind is like because the wind meters read low. Often times, I hear people say that it was "reading 8 knots yesterday" while I was overpowered on my 8m on that day. Anyways, we bought a webcam and have a w...

Re: Advice re school in Cabarete Dominican Republic

Spending as many hours flying a trainer kite prior to going will give you a big leg up in the learning process. This! ^^^ Nothing trumps actually strapping a kite to your waist, but watch some Youtube vids on kite set up and wind direction also. It never hurts to absorb as much as you can before yo...

Re: End of July / beginning of August reco?

Just putting it out there...I live in Cabarete and love it here. It was my dream to go to Brazil for years. I went. It as NOT my thing. Where in Brazil did you go? I went twice (Cumbuco and NW from Cumbuco) and so far it's my favorite destination. The wind is so consistent I went to Cumbuco, Taiba,...
