Bienvenidos a Pauhana, located on the North coast of the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean! 

We offer beautiful surf villas and multiple surf schools where you can stay, take surf lessons, and enjoy an unforgettable experience in & out of the water. Our surf instructors are friendly Dominicans who have been surfing these waves since they could walk, so rest assured you are in good hands. We are the only surf camp with three surf school locations, so you can get a taste of multiple Dominican breaks. Whether you are looking for lodging, surf lessons of all levels or an inclusive package, we are on a mission to keep the waves and good times rolling!
