The DR is an amazing island with a diverse landscape featuring towering mountains, tropical rain forests, dry desert spaces, and over 1,000 miles of coastline. Contemporary urban cities like Santo Domingo and Santiago mix with small, rural villages from days gone by. For those of us who are transplants to the DR, we are captured by the charm and friendliness of its people, the beauty of its landscapes, and the incredible tropical weather that is always warm and pleasant.
The DR has one of the biggest tourist markets in the Caribbean with thousands of people vacationing here from around the world each year.
All modern services can be found including some innovative technology (like fibre optic Internet) only just being placed in many North American cities. Our medical system is excellent with skilled doctors and well equipped hospitals. The democratic government is very forward thinking and foreign investment friendly, understanding that the future is based on education for the Dominican people, investment in technology, eco-tourism, and moving toward the future by spending its money in the most advantageous ways.
Both our renters and owners in Casa Linda tell us that they instantly feel at home in the Dominican Republic, are surprised that the level of services and shopping are much the same as in North America and Europe, and they enjoy the slower, more laid back lifestyle offered in the DR.
