Relax Beachside Between Adventures at Velero Beach Resort
Velero is a relatively small resort sporting just 60 rooms ranging in size from 50 to 200 square meters. All rooms feature direct views of the ocean, plus all the amenities you’d expect: central air, internet access, cable TV, etc. To be sure, my room was pleasant on a recent stay, but the real draw is beyond the confines of the suites.
On the grounds there's a huge palm tree motif created by artfully designed walkways. Around 12:30 or 1:00, the winds pick up and the kiteboarding faithful head for the water filling the skies over Cabarete are full of billowing kites—dancing this way and that. It’s a pretty amazing sight. Plus, at night Cabarete comes alive with local flavors, expat bars, and clubs that pound out rhythms into the wee hours of the night.
