The Dominican Republic was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1942. Today, tourists are rediscovering the country’s beauty on Dominican Republic holidays. Dotting the country are budget hotels that offer excellent value and modern amenities.
Hotel Villa Taina in Cabarete is an ideal choice for budget travellers, with its spacious and cosy rooms, some with amazing ocean views, and exciting activities. Rooms have Internet connection, telephone, mini bar, and private balconies where guests can simply hang out and relax. Guests can indulge in water sports such as surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, and scuba diving. Travellers who would rather stay dry can enjoy mountain biking, horseback riding, and golf. Exploring other Dominican Republic’s attractions is a breeze with the hotel’s rafting, sailing, and motorcycle tours. City tours, canoeing, and whale watching excursions are also offered.
Guests who prefer night revelry can sample Cabarete’s exciting nightlife. Enjoy an exceptional meal in an elegant restaurant, have some cuba libre (rum and coke) in the bars, and indulge in music ranging from jazz to heavy rock in the discotheques.
