Save Cabarete Campaign

The small village of Cabarete on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic has enjoyed sustainable tourism since the early ‘80's.Thousands of tourists who travel the world in search of wind have turned Cabarete into a Kiteboarding, Windsurfing, and Sailing Mecca. The beauty of hundreds of sails, and kites on the water every afternoon, has caught the eyes of the New York based developer Sackman Enterprises Inc.

They want to build three nine story towers in Cabarete, which would surely affect the wind in the bay.

Omar Bros, President of the Federation for Sustainable development of Cabarete has asked that people who wish to help keep Cabarete as a world centre for outdoor activities, and sailing, to send their opinions to the deputy minister of Tourism Mr.Radhames Martinez Aponte, at r.aponte@sectur.gov.do
