Shopping in Cabarete

A walk down Cabarete's one and only main street at the center of town is where you'll find the opportunity for shopping to exist.  Here, there are high end boutiques, cute gift shops, and mostly kite and surf shops.  You'll find everything you need here, but in truth there isn't a lot of variety.  For that, most tourists will head to nearby Sosua, which is only about 15 minutes away by car. 

Specialty Shops

One of the area's more popular speciality shops is Dive Cabarete. This store is located in the heart of Cabarete. For well over a decade, Dive Cabarete has lead the way in training up and coming scuba divers in PADI certification. Safety is a top priority, so every member of the staff is well-qualified to help you learn and grow as a diver. To reach them, call (809) 915-9135.

A second option is Northern Coast Diving, which is located 7.1 mi. (11.4 km) from Dive Cabarete. A PADI 5-Star IDC Resort, this center has been in operation since 1988, and continues to grow each year. Staff members speak English, Italian, and Spanish to make learning easier on visitors who speak any of these languages. If you have questions, call them at (809) 571-1028.

Dolphin Dive Center: No, they don't take you diving with dolphins (although one or two may show up on occasion), but they do make you feel like the majestic creature, as you explore the waters that surround this beach town. Sign up for PADI certification or just a few dives down deep and take in the knowledge of the experienced staff as you do so.
