    Getting a mortgage in DR

    Last year in Las Terrenas, I spoke with numerous real estate "brokers*" (* there is no real estate licensing in the DR, so I use the term loosely). All of them said they never had a client get a real estate mortgage. Some of them have been in business for over 20 years.

    Akasha Spa - Worth a visit or not

    I think Bob Saunders lives there. He may have a different opinion. Why is it boring? If you're active in sports, it looks like it might be the place to be in that region

    Central Bank increases interest rate base

    hopefully raising the interest rate will pause the inflation a bit with people spending less money. 2 months ago, we wanted to get a massage at Las Ballenas beach. About 6 months prior, I had paid $25.00 for a 1-hour massage. To my surprise, she said $60.00! HA HA - I told her in Spanish that...
