The country is in the Northern inter-tropical zone;
The temperature in Cabarete is pretty mild, above 25°C (77°F) all year round… The ‘warmest’ months of the year are from June to October, with temperatures around 29°C (84°F) daytime. And it is slightly coolest from December to March, with maximal temperatures around 27°C (80°F) daytime. During the night, the temperatures decrease only by around 5°C so you will rarely need a cover at night to sleep confortably.

The alize, which serves as an additional thermal power, blows regularly throughout the year (North East), but is more common in the summer. Therefore, you can usually sail with winds above 20 knots.
As for the wave season ,the winter is the best time; however, it is not uncommon to have very good sessions during the rest of the year.



*Add to this forecast at least 5 knots which is generated by the thermal wind.


The measures given in this section are real time and the wind speed is expressed in knots. To know if the wind is sufficient to navigate, you have to look at the red line which corresponds to the wind on the reef. For Kitesurf, above 15 knots is preferable, for windsurf 20 knots is better to navigate with a 5.0 for a light person.
