This year Cabarete will be celebrating the holidays with new shine and glow. Apart from the new sidewalks being finished in the town, there is also a nice Christmas tree and light installation in front of Fresh Fresh Cafe and next to Helados Bon in the town center. It’s a great spot where families can take Christmas photos and get into the Christmas spirit. It adds joyfulness and conviviality to the town look.

Taino Bay Puerto Plata Cruise Terminal

This week Puerto Plata has become the only town in the whole Caribbean with 2 functioning cruise ports.

The President of the Dominican Republic, Luis Abinader led this Wednesday the inauguration of the new tourist and cargo terminal Taíno Bay in San Felipe de Puerto Plata with the arrival of a MSC boat with capacity for 5,000 cruise passengers. Although due to the COVID-19 protocols and security measures, it only brought about 1,700 passengers.
The Taino Bay terminal is part of a multipurpose project that will allow the docking of cruise ships, containers and the loading of products, which will make it one of the most attractive and active ports in the country. Taino Bay with an investment of more than 80 million dollars is part of the government initiatives.

During the inauguration of the terminal, President Luis Abinader reiterated his commitment and that of his government to generate more jobs and increase the arrival of tourists to the country. This terminal will generate 1,500 direct jobs and 3,500 indirect jobs.

Through the gates of this port terminal, it is projected to receive over 750 thousand cruise passengers by 2022, which will represent an average income of US $ 75 million. Among the carriers that have confirmed their routes are Royal Caribbean Cruises, Virgin Voyages, MSC Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, TUI Cruises, Celebrity Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

We’re very happy and proud of this new cruise terminal. And we hope it will give the local economy a necessary boost so much needed after the pandemic.

Our Sunset Grill restaurant reopens its doors to the public, after over 2 months of the kitchen and bar remodeling. Offering one of the most privileged views of Cabarete beach, the restaurant arrives with a fresh and totally transformed concept.

The space reinvents itself and adapts to the modern times while maintaining the same essence of one of the iconic restaurants in the Cabarete tourist district. Vintage elements, cheesy sofas and soft tones have resulted in a very comfortable bright and open space, perfect for the Caribbean climate.

The Sunset Grill restaurant is led by the chef Víctor Artiles, together with the Captain of the Bar, Carlos Cuevas. They present a high quality gastronomic proposal, with a clear prominence of international cuisine but with an island touch, always highlighting its specialty in paellas and seafood.

The remodeling was based on the inclusion of the following elements: an industrial kitchen, divided into a cold kitchen section and a hot kitchen section. The latter has under its design a glass window so customers can observe how their order is being prepared in the kitchen. In addition, a room for cuts of meat, an area for seafood as well as bar improvements were parts of the project.
