What do expats find most challenging?

Answer this Question

We asked expats and digital nomads what they find the most challenging about the local culture in Bayahibe. They wrote...

"Expats in Bayahibe, Dominican Republic often find the language barrier to be the most challenging aspect of the local culture, as Spanish is the primary language spoken and not everyone is fluent in English. The laid-back, slower pace of life can also be a challenge for those accustomed to a more fast-paced, structured lifestyle. Additionally, the concept of "Dominican time," where punctuality is not strictly adhered to, can be frustrating for those from cultures where being on time is highly valued. The heat and humidity can also be difficult to adjust to, especially for those from cooler climates. Lastly, navigating the local bureaucracy can be challenging due to different procedures and regulations, as well as potential corruption," commented one expat who made the move to Bayahibe, the Dominican Republic.
