    Depends where.
    Short term rooms from 18-20 dollars a night / 500 dollars /month plus 10 dollars a day food.
    If you can find somewhere with cooking less.
    e.g.
    Fata Morgana Samana - Hotels & Resorts - Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic.

    And many others throughout the island.

    Long term from 200 dollars a month for room/studio - 3 months plus.

    If you just need to survive for a week 1000 seems rather a lot. If you cook at home - 500 seems ample inclding entertainment. After that it depends on your defintion of fun, shopping etc - prices for those items would probably be similar to what you pay in the states.

    Just use the same budget as you would for the same experience in the US, prices don't vary that much, not enough to be bothered about for a week. I'd bring at least a G each if you are going out partying, lapping up the touristy stuff. If you aren't doing all that then you won't need much. Usual back home living costs.

    Really depends on what you want to do and how much you party. For some 200-300 and they are good others will spend 2-3 grand in same time period,really depends on you.
