The space

This is it! - a surf palm leaf bungalow on the beach.
Sleeping to the sound of the waves and waking up to the view of multi shaded turquois water.
Buen Hombre is a hidden gem. A rustic, non-commercial, non-touristic fishing village surrounded by mountains and basically the windiest beach in Dominican Republic.
On average Buen Hombre has 6-10 knots more wind than Cabarete which is famous but very touristic and crowded. In summer for 3 months’ wind averages 25-35 knots. Water is flat and shallow and ideal to learn and practice your tricks. Many down winders available from 14-27 km in beautiful waters. Boat trips, wake boarding, SUP, jeep and moto rental, manatees & more!
Buen Hombre is the best beach in Dominican Republic to learn & practice kitesurfing. We have a professional , licensed kite school right on the beach by the bungalows.
We offer room & kitesurf demo lesson for beginners or advanced kiters,
also boat trips and snorkel. Trip to Paradise Island, SUP- stand up paddleboard, wake-boarding, off road trips, moto rental, trips to other beaches to kite or just to explore and much more, write for more info- we are happy to welcome you!
With best, Kite Buen Hombre team.

Guest access

We have a nice beach area for kitesurfing and chilling.

Interaction with guests

Our team
we have a great group of international instructors in our Kite Buen Hombre Team. We have professional licenses for teaching as well as official Ministry of Tourism license for the kite and aquatic school.
We speak together more than 8 languages and have had people visiting us from more than 20 countries from all over the world.
We love our kite club and surf camp and are very happy to host people from all around and teach kitesurfing in a paradise beach.

Other things to note

Kite Buen Hombre Kite Camp is not your typical all inclusive resort. Instead of hot tubs you have the entire sea. Instead of air conditioning you will have actual sea breeze. That's right — you'll be staying in your very own bungalow right on the beach. We've kept things here as authentic and rustic as they were when we first arrived here.
Kite Camp Buen Hombre has a local cook who provides food 2 times a day leaving one time to explore other seafood local places on the beach. The most common local delicacies are lobster, crab, octopus, red snapper and more.
The hammocks and lounge chairs on the beach give a nice opportunity to relax between kiting and sports to sip a drink or play domino, table tennis and other sports.
If there happens to be a day without enough wind there are many trips to other beaches, waterfalls or Paradise Island. Good way to practice board skills by wakeboarding, stand up paddle boarding, or just boat trips to surrounding islands. Great food and view and company are essential.

Kite Buen Hombre Camp has 8 palm leaf bungalows right on the beach- an ideal setting to learn kitesurfing and relax and chill in beautiful Caribbean waters.

“Exactly what I needed”

I was traveling alone, and I was so excited to learn to kiteboard. Riin is a fantastic host, organizer, and motivator. Immediately arriving to the Dominican I felt at safe, at home, and welcomed. As a young woman traveling alone feeling safe was an important factor for me when traveling here. Kite Buen Hombre is a great spot a couple hours from Cabarete for kiteboarding lessons. Buen Hombre is a special spot on earth, the people are friendly, food is delicious, water is clear, and there is always wind! Riin takes you under her wing to show you what this beautiful country has to offer. Cabo and Miky are both fantastic kiteboarding instructors. I will be back to visit my new friends!

“Authentic Dominican experience. Epic conditions. ”

If you're looking for a kite beach off the beaten path from the over crowded Cabarete then Kite Buen Hombre is your place. Wonderful outdoor rustic bungalows, hammocks, and wood fire cooking surrounded by salsa music pumping and fresh fish frying. Kite Buen hombre is beautiful with incredible winds, flat waters, rolling kickers on the reef, and sunset on the waves. One of a kind experience.

“A Hidden Gem, One of the Most Beautiful Spaces In Dominican Republic!”

Reviewed 4 weeks ago
I travelled through every major region of Dominican Republic on my recent trip and returned 3 times to Riin and Miky's Kite School! It is a great space with really good energy.

When you arrive, you drive through the beautiful mountians and there is a spectacular view of the water as well. The town is small and friendly and has amazing and affordable seafood for when you are looking for a bite between the communal meals.

The Kite School itself is a small paradise. The cabana homes are rustic yet very well built and comfortable. The outdoor showers are divine. The entire staff is friendly and helpful and they are lots of fun to spend time with between surfing.

Communal dinners are a great perk to this space, a great opportunity to try some tasty homemade meals and have great conversations with people from around the world.

I will likely come back to this space many times again! Highty recommended!

Great stay with Riin at Playa Buen Hombre! We were promptly greeted by Miky, who works at the hotel and as a kite board instructor/Playa Buen Hombre guide, and told to get ready for our free kite lesson. He was a knowledgeable and patient instructor and we had a great lesson. Fresh sea food for dinner and relaxing by the water rounded out the day. The next day we were guided to the mangroves along the beach and just relaxed by the water. A wonderful place to learn to kite, make friends with the locals, and just hang out on a peaceful, Dominican beach!

A nice Hotel on the beach-front in Playa Buen Hombre where you can relax and enjoy the laid back athmosphere of the fishing village. The rooms are clean and proper. The restaurant next door serves good food at reasonable prices. The village is a fantastic spot for kite surfing fans or a base for excursions to the islands near Monte Cristi. Local fishermen offer tours to the cayos or the islands. Though we did not meet Riin personaly, we only heard very positive remarks.
