The Destination
Cabarete, on the northern shore of the Dominican Republic, began attracting windsurfers in the 1990s with its whipping gales. Today, the consensus windsurfing and kiteboarding capital of the Caribbean retains its hip, laid-back vibe by catering to a youthful crowd, even if more people come to hang out than surf these days. Cabarete resists the overdevelopment of many Caribbean beach towns, instead embracing what Frommer's calls "a radical counterculture devoted to sun, fun, watersports, and good times." Spend a few days on the white sands of Playa Cabarete and you'll think the place is pretty rad, too.

The Digs
The Viva Wyndham Tangerine is a peach of an all-inclusive resort on the beach in Cabarete. The sandy locale influences the décor, with rooms featuring tropical accents and a palette of vibrant yellows and blues. Rooms also offer amenities like private balconies, cool cotton bedding, and daily housekeeping.

Beyond the accommodations, the resort welcomes families with a slew of on-site restaurants and activities. Children will enjoy participating kids programs, splashing in the oceanfront pool, and playing in the surf. A full-service spa boasts an extensive menu of massages, body scrubs, and other relaxing treatments for grown ups. And guests of all ages and tastes can find something delicious to eat at the resort's five restaurants, serving up everything from Italian to authentic Mexican cuisine.

The Diversions
Your family will never run out of cool things to do in Cabarete and nearby Puerto Plata. Start by building sandcastles on Playa Cabarete, then kick it up a notch with kiteboarding and windsurfing offered by the resort. In Puerto Plata, take a trip to the Amber Museum or visit El Faro, the 137-foot cast-iron lighthouse. Children will love Ocean World, an outdoor adventure park where visitors can swim with the dolphins.

  • "The hotel was beautiful. Tile floors, light and airy, clear pathways, plants, flowers, trees—beautiful. There is so much entertainment throughout the day and night for all ages. The hotel also has a kids club and offers a range of water sports."
