What says about Swell
Think of Swell as the anti-surf camp. There's plenty of surfing, of course, but the similarities to other camps end there. For starters, the rooms are stylish -- more boutique hotel than reggae-loving surfer digs. Then there are the legendary breakfasts (omelets, pancakes and crepes, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and fruit bowls) and the rave-worthy dinners (everything from a traditional Dominican spread to chicken cordon bleu to lasagna).
Structured lessons take place each morning, with an instructor alongside you and the head coach watching from shallow water, ready to offer tips between rides. During the afternoons, you're free to surf some more or relax on the grounds. Lounge by the pool, play ping-pong or foosball, or doze in the hammocks.

About our surf camp
Swell is the only modern & purpose-built surf camp in the Caribbean. Located on the North coast of the Dominican Republic, right in the surfer-town of Cabarete, just 20 minutes away from Puerto Plata International Airport.
Our Dominican Republic surf camp has been especially designed and built for surfers of all levels, who love to stay in a very comfortable, clean and social place in a great location.
Swell has taken Caribbean surfcamp holidays to a whole new level; still affordable, but now including all modern day comforts like a stylish, clean and spacious room, all with en-suite, a beautiful swimming pool set in a lush tropical garden and centrally located, close to beaches and the vibrant surf town of Cabarete.
Since we at Swell are active surfers and kiters ourselves, we think we have succeeded in designing the ultimate, tropical surf camp in Cabarete for you to stay on your next surfing holiday.
Our large communal area provides an attractive, relaxing space and is the focal point of the camp. Guests enjoy the free WiFi and the ultimate dining table where they eat our now legendary breakfasts and suppers whilst chatting with fellow guests.
There are comfy bean bags and a TV with a library of movies/surf/kite videos to enjoy. We also understand that you active surf folks can't sit still for long, so a pool table, fussball and table tennis table are provided.
When it is finally time for a real rest, lie in one of the hammocks strung beneath the palm trees or on a comfortable lounger by the pool.
There really is no better place in Cabarete for you to enjoy all this great Caribbean surf town has to offer.
Hasta Pronto ........
