    My guess would be 20%.

    Only? With all the comments we see on here, you would think that everyone lives here full time...

    Touche!

    While I think you're on the right track, there are a lot of people like me and Mr. AE, who have homes in the DR but aren't there permanently. 'Snowbirds' if you will.

    And there are some who don't have a home, but rent each year for months at a time.

    Surely you don't think their comments are inadmissable?

    There are also people who DO live there year-round, who live in their little expat conclaves and really don't have a clue about the rest of the country.

    And then there are the Dominicans on this board who left DR to live elsewhere, in my opinion they are often the ones with the best insight. They know who they are.

    It's very important to have a cedula&residency specially for us living in SD. It makes things PRETTY easier

    OMG, I would never say that! Especially of you While a lot of people do give out very good up-to-date info and are actually helpful, there's another portion who've been here on vacation a few times and think they know it all. An on top of that, they can't keep their opinions to themselves and present them as if they were facts.

    And before anyone asks, I DO live here and have been here full-time for almost 16 years.

    Reminds me of those days i'd dream of riding on a airplane, lol.

    If you considering getting a real job/ insurance services, banking, etc.

    Also it makes you more settled in the mind. Don't you think??
