What do I need to know before retiring in Samana?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Samana, they said...

"Expats considering retirement in Samana, Dominican Republic should be aware of several key factors. Firstly, the cost of living is generally lower than in many Western countries, but it's important to budget for unexpected expenses. Healthcare is affordable and of good quality, but it's recommended to have health insurance. The official language is Spanish, so learning the language will make daily life easier. The Dominican Republic has a tropical climate with high temperatures and humidity, which may take some getting used to. Samana is known for its beautiful beaches and outdoor activities, so it's perfect for retirees who enjoy an active lifestyle. However, it's also important to note that the infrastructure may not be as developed as in your home country. The Dominican Republic has a residency program for retirees with pensions, which can make the immigration process easier. It's also important to understand the local laws and regulations, especially those related to property ownership and taxes. Safety can be a concern in some areas, so it's important to research and choose your neighborhood carefully. Finally, it's recommended to visit Samana several times before making the decision to retire there, to ensure it's the right fit for your lifestyle and preferences," explained one expat living in Samana, the Dominican Republic.
