The city proper of Cabrera generally has about 6,000 people while the entire municipality boasts 25,000 at last census. And woven seamlessly within are growing ex-pat residential communities from Canada, France, United States, Western Europe, and South Korea, all combining to make a warm, friendly, unspoiled community. You will not find any all-inclusive resorts in Cabrera or beaches overcrowded with tourists. Cabrera's charming and pristine character has been sustained through strong community relations between the locals and ex-pats, all of who call this place 'home' and are very proud to do so.

Foreign investment in Cabrera comes not from the tourists but mostly from those ex-pats who are living within the community itself as residents. The majority of income generated in Cabrera comes from local agricultural efforts while the ex-pat and tourist businesses contribute significantly as well. Indeed, one of the largest consistent contributors to local income are the luxury vacation villas scattered throughout the area with a heavier concentration in the gated, beachfront community of Orchid Bay Estates.

Town of Cabrera

Cabrera is a just small town located at the eastern end of the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, or so says the Wikipedia definition; but is it just that? Cabrera is really one of the best kept secrets in the Republica Dominicana. Situated between the larger towns of Nagua and Rio San Juan and lying alongside the Atlantic coast Cabrera, historically, was an agricultural town, its main sources of income coming from cattle, meat, milk production, coconuts, and rice as well as fresh fish and shellfish. Originally called 'Tres Amarras' at its foundation day on July 1, 1891 Cabrera was renamed to 'Cabrera' in honor of the hero of the Capotillo Battle, General Jose' Cabrera.

Cabrera ocean view is what makes Cabrera so special in the eyes of those who know it or have discovered it? Maybe it's because Cabrera has some of the most beautiful beaches in the Dominican Republic as well as rivers, exotic vegetation and many natural attractions including a National Park reserve located in El Breton, a small section of Cabrera called Cabo Frances Viejo; possibly because it is host to some of the most prestigious and luxurious villas you will find anywhere in the Dominican Republic in the Orchid Bay Estates development located just outside the town, or maybe it is the genuine warmth and hospitality offered by the local inhabitants to visitors to Cabrera.

Natural beauty, candid hospitality, a warm embrace, multiple smiles, native tenacity, the brilliant sun, hands that give, palm trees swaying in the breeze, white sand, blue sky, a flower wet with dew, a love of youth, a friend in the park, a lesson in the school, a church to sing in, a father who comes home to his family, a celebration for someone born, a love that never forgets you, a sweetheart that you loved, a history that was born... This is Cabrera, an unforgettable paradise.
