    Try Bravo. They seem to be consistent with most of their products.

    Back Migration to The DR

    I've never understood why so many Dominicans want to migrate to NYC? It's super expensive, has a major crime problem and offers a poor quality of life.

    The Burundanga scare is real

    Lets be honest. For those of you who've been living down here for more than a few months you know damn well if this "drug" was half as effective as some people claim it is, it would be a major problem in this country given the amount of crooks, thieves, hustlers, scammers and stick up kids...

    Electric Cars in the DR

    Sounds good. This was a scooter. Imagine a moto.

    It will be far worse. Dominicans tend to destroy everything. The charging stations will be destroyed and if they ever get repaired they will be destroyed again shortly thereafter. Rinse and repeat.

    Armed windshield washers

    The down side is if you park in the same area/ block on a regular basis, you risk having your mirrors stolen/ broken, doors scratched and in some cases tires flattened if you never give them any money. Not speaking from personal experience but I've heard plenty of stories from folks who live here.

    Be careful when dealing with people who do not value life or the lives of others like we do.

    Electric Cars in the DR

    Maybe try adding a few more zeros? like in 5,000 years. They can't even provide electricity 24 hrs a day in the cities. All this EV talk is hilarious.

    As unfortunate as it may be I've heard similar stories from Dominicans.

    Residents in Casa de Campo protest residential management fees for installing solar

    The only "change" comes in the form of profits shifting from well-established companies to new ones. This is simply a good marketing ploy. The climate has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    The DR is not for everyone

    Having lived in a half a dozen different countries on three different continents over the last 20 years. Takes 2 years max (in my opinion) to decide whether or not it was a good idea or it's time to move on.

    You have a better chance of being robbed by the PN than this nonsense.

    The DR is not for everyone

    We spent 9 and a 1/2 years there, and it was the most miserable 9 and a half years of our lives. All those who claim to love it, are living in their own little touristy bubble in Puerto Plata, Sosua, and Punta Cana. They live in their little vacation mode and don't have to deal with the real...
