    Dominicans are good borrowers

    👆There it is! True. Our employees do the same. Many Dominicans believe banks are 'ladrones' anyway, indicating low or zero trust. A lot of working Dominicans and business owners have a significant amount of debt...to banks? If loan delinquency is low in the Dominican Republic, their lending...

    Big winners in today's lottery

    👆 That part... especially for the man with 263,666,666. 😬😳 Why would anyone allow their full name and the amount won to be published? Isn't there an option to remain anonymous? Miesposa said that even if they had the option, most Dominicans would choose the photo op... just for the flaunt...

    Warning on Temu

    Absolutely , they do . Case in point: Miesposa wanted one of those Ikea JÄTTESTA shelves priced at RD$15,495. There was a two-day wait for delivery and then ...self-assembly.😩 So , she checked one of her WhatsApp groups where many Dominicans and non-Dominicans sell items. She found an almost...

    deposit for apartment rentals

    That part! 👆You just answered your question. Go with your instincts. Your money, your time. You will be surprised how little recourse you will get and how foolish you will look if your instincts told you not to pay a deposit to a Facebook advertiser... and yet you took the chance, and paid...

    The DR is better than Florida?

    There are many similar videos online saying the same thing.😩 Not sure what their agenda is. Maybe they are offering "relocation services" to fund their life here, perhaps. But whatever their agendas, people tend to believe these videos, and people will try to move to "paradise" in the DR...

    Dominican Superbugs ? or Baygon etc. mot working anymore !?

    Miesposa sprays this... on everything and everywhere 😩, just like she puts salsa rosada on every dish. But I digress. She claims Baygon Verde Liquido is the most effective there is, and it's "immediate". We used to buy insecticides from Amazon, but she says Dominican insects laugh at those...

    Still searching for a payroll and tax accountant....

    Try LinkedIn and Instagram (many advertise there). We found a few good Dominican accountants on LinkedIn, i.e., a connection of one of our connections. The same thing worked on Instagram. Our attorney on Instagram initially said she didn't know a good accountant. However, we scrolled through...

    Frontier Airlines Is Adding Puerto Rico-Dominican Republic Flights

    If the new route resembles the PUJ <> SJU route, then no, thank you!😬 Between the constant delays and subpar service, our last trip on the PUJ route turned a 30-minute flight into a nearly six-hour ordeal. 🤬We haven't flown with them since. However, it's worth mentioning that the ground staff...

    Daytime Running Lights

    The exact same thing happened here ...not worth trying to fight the ticket. Worst case scenario, just pay it and move on with life. Misesposa had warned me about the lights ...didn't get round to it ...So, when I got pulled over, all I could think about was the drama I was going to get when I...

The day...back in 2008 or so....when Miesposa ( then girlfriend) ....marched into a barbershop in SD to ask why they overcharged me for a haircut and made them give back the extra money.....was when I knew she was the one . It was a ridiculous "gringo price" amount ...looking back...
