    Well, hot shower in the morning and again at night, but neither of us stay in there for a long time ( 12 gal tank) A/c is only on at bedtime until morning so 8 hours or less. If it's really hot we put the a/c in the office on, but we aren't in the ghouse to much during the day. No solar panels or old meters. We have comfortstar split inversor a/c 12,000 each.

    How long do you think will you survive on that kind of food?

    Pack your bags fish.
    You live in the wrong country with that bean allergy.
    Maybe Portugal.
    I am looking forward to going. Inexpensive, great weather in the south, no ac, no heaters. Plus the seafood and wine is great and local
    I wish they did not speak Portuguese.

    Have you tried brown rice? Its hard to cook correctly without one of those electric timer pots but if you have one of them it is easy, comes out fine every time and much better that white stuff.

    I find living in the DR to be way more expensive than I expected.
    I was lured in by folks saying the cost of living was low, "its a paradise"!
    Then I found out there are two living styles here, Gringo and Dominican.
    If you can live Dominican it is a low cost of living.
    I cannot live Dominican.
    I want low cost of living for a high style life.
    I am still looking.

    It is easy to eat low cost but not Dominican - curries, thai food, italian, chinese - all cheap to buy/prepare and delicious. Live high up in the mountains so you don't need aircon - go down to the cities when you want to be high style!

    Portugal is a great alternative

    But you can live well here on a small budget..
    local things... not imported

    No beef (bad anyway)... pork , fish, chicken
    local fruit/veg

    Actually, Portuguese is not difficult to learn if you speak Spanish. It does not sound like it looks, though. I learned it in a week.
