    Yes, I also agree but that’s a given. I’m looking for anyone to comment with something a little more helpful. Price range specifically… Thanks

    Home attendant for Senior in San Cristobal

    Hey guys, I’m going to start looking for some extra help for my grandmother who’s in her 90s but I have no idea where to start or what the costs may be for something like that. Anyone have experience looking for this type of help? What is usually charged and what to look out for? Any help...

    Moving back to DR (north coast) when I retire: do or don't

    Same here! I’m so glad I chose the North of the country (not NC) to live several months out of the year until I make my full move. It’s a personal choice that the person who asked the question originally will have to make himself. I myself couldn’t live in beach town, especially Puerto...

    Moving back to DR (north coast) when I retire: do or don't

    I often recommend future expats to try a few places before making a choice. Meaning, rent a place in NC, stay a month or 2.. Then try the Capital, Santiago or other parts of the Country. Make it a fun experience, explore a little and only then should you make your decision.

    Car parked for several months while I’m away.

    I’m about to head back to the states for a few months, heading to New York. Any, my Camry will be parked without anyone using it for a few months and I’m not sure what will happen to the tires while the car is just sitting there. I’ll be disconnecting the battery and the car will be covered...

    A Dominican posted this perspective on FB

    interesting post, lots of great points by the writer. Who may or may not have written it is irrelevant. The point was made and I agree with it for the most part. You can’t move to a small Caribbean country/ half island and expect it to be the south of France or Spain… Complaining about a...

    Crackdown on Chinese business violators

    Although I enjoy paying cheaper for items, I also believe in giving small local businesses a fair shot. If one uses loopholes, skims on taxes, pays low wages and uses other methods, this allows them to have very cheap prices thus killing the locals and their businesses. I can’t in good faith...

    Mamajuana Cafe Opens in Philadelphia

    I had that same exact dish in the Manhattan location… Delicious!

    What would you do?

    Agree… Then get them to leave immediately! Don’t try to rent to them. Anyone that would invade someone’s property shouldn’t be trusted to be a good tenant.

    SANTO DOMINGO vs SANTIAGO

    Wow, I’m blown away by the amount of developments in that area. It’s such a shame that I’ve completely turned away from that part of the capital believing that “everything cool” was in the Districto National and under the assumption that all of that side of the Capital was just to unsafe to...

    Totally agree, no right or wrong answers. Comes down to personal preference.

    SANTO DOMINGO vs SANTIAGO

    I’m literally always in Santiago, all over the place and I can say that it’s way way cleaner than the Capital… Im from NYC so shopping, malls and things of that nature are most definitely NOT what I’m looking in a Caribbean Country. I have Soho, Madison Ave and more choices than I can count on...
