The latest from eco tourism in the Dominican Republic

Our friends up at Taino Organic Farms, in loz brazos, are putting together the Dominican Republic’s first full sustainable organic farm.

It is being built as we speak, and Farmer Paul will build on the current organic farm to expand into a variety of other produce to supply the organic vegetable delivery, the Saturday’s farmer’s market and the Funky Carp restaurant in eXtreme hotel Cabarete.

Farmer paul brings 30 years of organic farming knowledge, along with contacts from all around the world. He spend a lot of time in Vancouver, Canada, as well as Hawaii farming heirloom vegetables including tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, beans, leaf vegetables and more. When combined with the rare exotic trees, Taino Oraganic Farms is quickly becoming the premier producing farm of organic produce here on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic.

Come on by the Funky Carp at eXtreme Cabarete to sample some of the produce, or make an appointment to visit Taino Organic farms – it ties in well with any Cabarete kiteboard vacation. There is lots to see including a wide variety of bamboo, a great river to swim in, or just relax and take in the chill country living. There is even a distillery on site, so you’re sure to have a good time.

As soon as there is enough bamboo to harvest, they will be building small Cabanas for guests who want to spend the night.    This will be the only true eco tourism lodge in the Dominican Republic, as it will be fully built in a sustainable method.
