The North Coast of the Dominican Republic has the most diverse landscape, which is perfect for horseback riding enthusiasts. Cabarete is no exception so there are several routes services by local tour operators where visitors can have a eco-friendly experience riding on the beach, forest, mountains and rivers. Although providers do take customers directly, it is much better to use a tour operator as the experience is far more rewarding and well coordinated.

What to bring to the tour

If you book one of these horseback riding tours via a tour operator, they will explain what is needed in terms of clothing, shoes, etc and they also include snacks and drinks. You will get wet and feel the sun, so having UV protection, a cap or hat, and long pants will come in handy. Any shockproof cover for cameras or mobile phones should do the job, and think of a bathing suit in case you want to take a dip in the river or one the beaches along the path.
