Ok, so even after a few hours of surfing, kitesurfing, paddle surfing, you still want more things to do?
Let's sum up some of the other activities you could be doing on your surf trip to Swell Surf Camp
Canyoning, repelling; jumping and descending the ‘Magic Mushroom’
This amazing adventure will take you to the beautiful area of Jarabacoa where you will hike, jump and rappel down some of the most amazing creations of Mother Nature; the Magic Mushroom is an incredible cascade of water over which you will rappel before letting go into the deep water below. You will also get to jump some falls as high as 13m. If you don’t want the high jumps, the guides will help you rappel down to the water below. Swell guests always return from this adventure full of stories and adrenaline!
Attend a Yoga class @ Swell
Yoga classes inside Swell, no need to leave the premises, we get a qualified instructor coming in a few times per week if people want to join in.
Day trip to Playa Grande
Playa Grande is well...a large beach as the name implies. But besides being big , it's also very pretty. White sand and plam trees make a great place to enjoy the sun, sea and sand.
Hungry? Have a nice freshly prepared Dominican meal on the beach. Thirsty? Enjoy a pinacolada out of a pineapple .
If there's a good swell running we can also take the surfers to Playa Preciosa, the next bay up from Playa Grande. A spectacular cliff top setting with some of the best waves that central america has to offer underneath it (experienced surfers only)
A few minutes walk away from Swell is Cabarete's famous nightlife on the main beach. Fancy sipping a cocktail on the beach underneath a palmtree; this is your place. If dancing is more your thing then wait until 11 when all you have to do is follow the music to see where the party crowd is.
Safe, easy and great fun is how our clients describe Cabarete's nightlife scene. It offers something for everyone.
Hard core downhill racing or a leisure trip to pretty scenery, we'll tell the guide what you are into and he'll pick the right tracks for you. See the North coast of the Dominican Republic, off the beaten tracks!
Another favorite from the many guests that we get at Swell, even people that are not into horses or riding them, come back saying it was one the highlights of their surf trip with Swell. Cross rivers and narrow tracks and get to see parts inaccessible any other way than by horse. Tommy the guide will take care of you and make sure that everything happens in a safe and fun way.
Wakeboard on the Yasica River
A short drive out of Cabarete is the Yasica River, a good place for kitesurfing when there's wind and if you like silky-smooth flat water. Don't want to wait for the wind or not into kitesurfing? Go and wake skate. Wakeboarding behind a jetski. Surrounded by a stunning setting on the river, it's a great experience.
Treat yourself to a massage
Go on, treat yourself...you're on holiday, give those muscle that worked so hard with the surfing a bit of love. Different kinds of massages are available at very reasonable prices.
Take a windsurf lesson
Just because kitesurfing is getting all the attention these days, doesn't mean that windsurfing is passe. It's still a great sport and for first timers, not much wind is needed for the basics of this fun and action packed watersport.
Chill at Swell
OK, we could go on and on with things to do in and around Cabarete, but this list will do for now ,since our fingers are getting sore from typing. How about just relaxing for the afternoon at Swell by the pool in a hammock with a cold beverage working on your sun tan.
Being active is great, but doing nothing at Swell can also be a superb way to get through the day.... whatever suits you..it's your holiday!
