What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?
When you move to the DR, unless restricted by work, I would spend a couple of months in a few different areas as the country is so diverse. Once you have decided on the area then just put the word out that you are looking to rent and the potential landlords will find you. Do remember to take into account that access to electricity and water are not automatic, so you need to check their availability. The prices of property vary dramatically by area - the more touristy and closer to the sea, the higher the price. (Continue)

I'm interested in the town and village sections. A or B electricity is fine with me. What would your first choice be as a first time resident?

Nice report! Hello! My name is Aaron. I'm planning on moving to DR with my wife and daughter. I'm interested in moving to a place that is not too touristy and inexpensive. We plan on moving around April and May. Can you please point me in the right direction. This will be the first time we will be moving out of the US. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks for your time!

I would be sure to study Spanish as it makes the transition much easier. I would just come initially, if possible, for a six month period every year, and then go back. I would not buy anything for at least two years, until you decide that you really like it and until you have seen the entire country. (Continue)
