    Default Miami to Santo Domingo? Might as well!

    Hey everyone! Long time lurker, first time poster I live in Miami and I'm considering a yearlong move to DR. My primary motivations are to learn Spanish and to diversify my life experiences. I just touched down in Santo Domingo this afternoon and will be in town "testing the water" for a few days. I hope to connect with many of you and add value to this wonderful forum!

    You will definitely achieved both of your motivations in the DR however just remember if you stay a year you will have to pay exit fines when you leave. Your tourist card is good for 30 days and you can extend it but without residency be prepared to cough up some pesos at the airport. Also when you make your airline reservation most will require you to buy a round trip ticket. You will have to get a return ticket that you can change or cancel without a penalty. Ya no estas en South Beach!!! Buenos Suarte'.
