    Default Best "campo" in dr

    I know there are numerous DR1 members living in various "campo" locations throughout the country. I would like to know where you think the best campos are located and why? I know this is a subjective question, but I would love to hear the different experiences/perspectives.

    We'd have to define 'campo' first...
    I reckon, we live in the campo, but then I am not so sure...

    @donP..jaja...Campo in my mind = not city, tourist town, or big pueblo location (i.e. Santiago, Puerto Plata, Cabarete, Jarabacoa, Nagua, etc)....I'm thinking more "off the grid" locations....like Manabao (just an example)...or places you would have to look hard on the map to find :-)

    Yes, that's a good definition...

    However, a place can be small but its proximity to a good infrastructure can make it a pleasant one.
    We prefer a rural life with less pollution, noise and crime; but yes, it would have to be not too far from 'civilisation'.
    Trying to have both, I guess.

    The best campo would be YOUR campo......

    Less people, the better.
    But, electricity and water are a plus (not always the case ), so is bin collectio .
    Then build ure place to ure convinience.

    I like the campo (and mine ), less people, less crime, less hassle. Cheaper food and lifestyle. Nicer people.....
    But I think u will find most dr1 campo inhabitants will have a family tie with their campo......hence makes life easier.....

    I would be hard pressed to go out and choose a campo to live in...... but I do like that strech between GH and Nagua.......

    Cool...So where is your Campo if I may ask? Or is it a top secret location? :-)

    I am not sure if I am in the campo or not but I like how quiet and safe it is! Everyone knows each other and we watch out for one another.

    My location is 5 minutes before Gaspar if going east.

    I have heard Caso de Campo is nice, but it doesn't qualify as real campo living...
