Cabrera is a small town on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. It’s located about a 2 hour drive from Puerto Plata and about 1 hour 50 minutes from Samaná. There’s hardly any tourism in Cabrera, but the area does have several big mansions that are frequently rented by especially American tourists.

Just a short 10 minute drive from Cabrera, you’ll find the incredible Playa Grande beach, golf course and the brand new Amanera luxury Resort. The beach is public and open for everyone and definitely a “must see” for anyone staying in this area. The golf course is only available for guests staying at the Amanera Resort. A little further along the coast (going west) you’ll reach Rio San Juan where there is a small lagoon and marina.
