    Default Safe areas to live in SD.

    We are thinking about renting in SD for a while, not anytime soon as we have to sell our house but I wanted to start looking around at some places.
    What are some nice areas in or close to SD to live in? It must be a house since we have 6 dogs 2 cats. 2 bedroom type thing.
    I have no idea what rental prices are there but I wouldn't want to spend much over $1000 a month.

    For $1,000 a month you can stay here!
    WITH all your "Animals"!
    Check DR1 rentals, although I haven't seen many "Houses" for rent there.
    I'll check the "Want Adds" Manana!

    There are 3 bedroom houses here in Puerto Plata for $200.00 a month in areas without electrical problems. Grab your mama and a guagua and come on over and I'll show you around and you can see what there is.

    It is ruining the wife's instruments and way too much constant maintenance.
    Derfish I dislike POP. We only
    want to rent there for a year to see if we like it but will
    probably head back to the NC. It isn't 100%, either Cab/sosua or SD. I like the NC but really miss normal stores, movie theatres etc.

    Consider STI. Close to NC. Safer than SD. All the normal strores. Oh, also all the usual characters.

    What kind of instruments - musical?

    Ya musical stuff and computers etc.
    We wouldn't be able to live somewhere without an ocean so Santiago is not in the running. :-).

    You will love Santo Domingo. Traffic is terrible here but after awhile you learn what are the better times of day to avoid the congestion.

    Her digital piano she has only had for 6 months is screwing up and her amp is not working. I have had to fix my new MacBook Pro already and it only worked for a few months after it was fixed and the wife's Mac book pro needs fixing too! I can see the salt in the air at night on my outside cameras.

    Los Cacicazgos, los Prados, Las Praderas, Bella vista, Castellano, los Restauradores, Evaristo Morales, La Julieta, Los Rios (I know a family that lives in Los rios, renting a huge house with pool and big garden, they might be moving end of this year, they are renting and paying not that much (but more than usd1000).

    Most he ouses in these sectors are over USD1000 / month probably, houses in SD are probably much more expensive than NC. Arroyo Hondo has many options, but I wouldn't call it very safe. (Sorry CC). Too many 'barrios'. On the other hand, places like Cuesta Hermosa in AH are probably safe enough.

    Btw, in my opinion, going to SD might be your first step of going back to Canada.
