Things to See and Do While Staying at Hotel Zapata

A schedule full of active pursuits is not something every vacationer desires. So, although Hotel Zapata does not have too much in the way of recreational opportunities, it might still provide precisely the kind of setting you're trying to find.

This hotel is right on the water, so their lack of a swimming pool isn't a problem for most guests who can enjoy lounging on the sand instead. In fact, even when they do have access to a pool, many people like visiting the beach so much that they don't use the hotel's pool at all.


Even though you'll probably find a good deal of vendors in the Dominican Republic that can offer extra aquatic fun, the following list provides you a good idea of the few watersports that are available on-site.

  • Scuba Diving
