    Default Hello everyone.

    New to the site, but I've been to the DR several times for vacation. Lived in the Atlanta area my whole life, but now I'm ready to make the leap and move down. I'm looking to buy a villa in a ocean front gated community near Cabarete, within the year. I'm sure I'll have a thousand questions. Look forward to chatting with y'all.

    Living directly on the ocean has many disadvantages. Please choose carefully. Also, in Cabarete there are not many gate guarded communities with villas directly on the ocean so your choices will be limited and rather costly.

    We thought about buying ocean view land outside of Puerto Plata and building a home. Ultimately we thought it would be safer to buy a near ocean condo in Punta Cana. We did that 3 years ago and have no regrets.

    Welcome to the DR. It cannot hurt to repeat the suggestion that you rent prior to buying. I cannot decide after several years, and still have other areas to visit.
