How do I find a place to live in Punta Cana?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Finding a place to live in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic involves several steps. First, you need to determine your budget and what type of accommodation you're looking for. This could range from a small apartment to a large villa. Next, you should research the different neighborhoods in Punta Cana to find one that suits your lifestyle and preferences. Some popular areas include Bavaro, Cap Cana, and Uvero Alto. Once you have an idea of where you'd like to live, you can start searching for available properties. There are several online real estate platforms that list properties for rent or sale in Punta Cana, such as Point2Homes, Realtor.com, and Airbnb for short-term rentals. You can also hire a local real estate agent to help you in your search. They can provide valuable insight into the local market, help negotiate prices, and guide you through the legal process of renting or buying property in the Dominican Republic. When you find a property you're interested in, it's important to visit it in person before making a decision. This will allow you to check the condition of the property, the amenities, and the surrounding area. Finally, once you've chosen a property, you'll need to sign a lease or purchase agreement. Make sure to read the contract carefully and understand all the terms before signing. If you're not fluent in Spanish, it might be helpful to hire a translator or a lawyer to ensure you fully understand the contract. Remember, moving to a new country can be a complex process, so it's important to do thorough research and seek professional advice if needed," remarked one member in Punta Cana.
