What should I pack when moving to Santiago de los Caballeros?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Santiago de los Caballeros to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic, it's important to pack lightweight clothing due to the tropical climate. This includes short-sleeved shirts, shorts, and dresses. However, you should also pack a few warmer items like a light jacket or sweater for cooler evenings or air-conditioned environments. Comfortable walking shoes are a must, as well as sandals or flip-flops for the beach. Don't forget to pack a swimsuit, as the Dominican Republic is known for its beautiful beaches. Pack enough toiletries to last you until you can find a local store, including items like toothpaste, shampoo, and soap. It's also a good idea to bring any prescription medications you need, along with a copy of your prescription. Sun protection is crucial in the Dominican Republic, so pack plenty of sunscreen, a wide-brimmed hat, and sunglasses. If you plan on cooking, consider packing some of your favorite spices or non-perishable food items, as they may be hard to find locally. Bring a Spanish-English dictionary or phrasebook to help with communication, as Spanish is the official language of the Dominican Republic. Pack important documents such as your passport, driver's license, and any necessary visas or work permits. Lastly, don't forget to pack a power adapter for your electronics, as the Dominican Republic uses a different type of plug than many other countries," remarked another expat who made the move to Santiago de los Caballeros, the Dominican Republic.
