Cabarete became a tourist destination in the 90’s when windsurfing was popular all around the world. Perfect wind and waves for watersports essentially put Cabarete on the map. Even the sport of kitesurfing that was invented around that time has had lots of its development history here on the beaches of Cabarete.
