    Punta Cana for me .... after living in SDQ for 3 years.. I don't why I didn't move here sooner. If you don't need to work in SDQ I don't know why anyone would want to live in SDQ.

    I shall be down to earth, i love my small campo in the middle of nowhere, in the center of platanos, coffee, papaya, cacao plantations also surrended by cows , horses, 50km from SFM. No stress, no gringos, only locals full of bachata, marengue salsa reguetton, nice chicks, local beer and lovely people to live with.

    A flat land beach based compromise perhaps. It ain't real DR for me. And so far away.
    So Far away its only 1hr and 40minutes to the capital plus its a beautiful ride.Hard push in your world maybe i agree its not for everyone but its definitely for me . I did my time in the capital no more.... and yes it's all a matter of choice

    I guess you refer to the road and not the surrounding scenery.

    I accept that there are many that settle for what is comfortable for them and glad you have found your piece of DR that suits you. But I am sure there are some readers who want to hear about places that are outside the well trodden box and also represent the best of DR in other ways.

    Now living in the campo away from the cities with cacao, coffee, papaya and other tropical goodies all around, away from expats and really immersing oneself in unadulterated Dominican life as post #82 sounds much more idyllic and a very best of DR to me.

    For me I take safety, security, and convenience over coffee beans and papaya any day. To each his own.........

    . If the mountains are for you have at it. I prefer not to wake up to the Roosters... since when can't you get Papaya or Coffee or Cacao in PC . and i'll take the flat piece of land any day over the thiefs and trash in the capital

    There is much more to DR than the capital and the East Coast thankfully.

    Lets move on and get for readers a wider community perspective of possible best places in DR to live with pros and cons, roosters and all.
