Natura Cabana

5 Paseodel Sol
Cabarete , Dominican Republic http://www.naturacabana.com/ING/index.html
(809) 571-1507

What’s It’s Like: Just 10 minutes from the small bustling beach town of Cabarete, the 10 bungalows, with roofs made of palm fronds and stone-and-bamboo interiors, blend into the jungle-like environs. The earthy spa menu includes mud wraps and salt scrubs; the two restaurants prepare organic dishes, from ceviche to fish stir-fry. Activity-seekers can turn to the helpful staff, who will arrange scuba diving in Sosúa Bay and horseback riding through nearby villages.

Why It’s a Bargain: The lush north coast of the island has fast become a favorite destination for windsurfers who enjoy the authentic vibe—and lack of tourists.
