A word about
ION CLUB Cabarete
Cabarete is a windsurfers´and kitesurfers´paradise, situated on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic, about 40 km from Puerto Plata International Airport.
December, January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September
The wind is modest in the morning and gains strength at midday under the influence of the trade wind. The best wind conditions are in January–March and June–September. The offshore reef is about 600 meters off the beach and the flat water stretching inbetween is all that slalom enthusiasts could wish for. From May–October the wind blows mainly sideshore from the right at 4-5 Beaufort. From November–April it mainly blows cross-offshore from the right and is less constant, but instead wave freaks can ride down waves up to 4 meters high.
From November till April, the conditions are perfect for intermediate wave riders and wave freaks. Upwind of the center there is a shallow water section where beginners and intermediates feel comfortable and the tuition conditions are excellent. Beginners and intermediates can practice close to the shore while more experienced windsurfers can conquer the waves on the reef.
HOW TO GO TO ION CLUB Cabarete ?
By plane to Aeropuerto Internacional de Gregorio Luperon
By plane to Aeropuerto Internacional Las Americas de Jose Francisco Pena Gomez
Secondly there is the international airport of Santo Domingo “Aeropuerto Internacional Las Americas de Jose Francisco Pena Gomez”, in the capital on the southern coast of Dominican Republic, which is 150 km and 2 hours-drive on a Highway away from Santiago – the 2nd biggest city of the island in the Cibaovalley on the north coast – which again will lead to Cabarete over the northern chain of mountains on smaller roads in about 1,5 hours (110 kms). Transfer from Santo Domingo to Cabarete by car takes about 4 hours. Taxi services such as car rentals like Avis, National, Hertz, Europcar are available at all times. Rented cars can be returned at the airport of Puerto Plata.
By plane to Aeropuerto International de Cibao in Santiago
The third Airport called Aeropuerto International de Cibao in Santiago, a good hour transfer to Cabarete. For clients travelling from the eastern European countries eg. Russia, Poland, Croatia, etc. it is recommended to take a connecting flight to the closest and most convenient airport in a European city first and then fly directly to Puerto Plata. Clients from South America have to travel via New York or Miami, USA or San Juan, Puerto Rico to catch a schedule flight from there to Puerto Plata or Santo Domingo. Generally we recommend to fly to Puerto Plata and not to Santo Domingo, because it’s closer to Cabarete and therefore a lot more convenient.
