    I am here from the uSA. I first came tothis country because of a woman I met in Boston who pretended she was a doctora and had a pension from the govt and that she owned her own home. Bth were lies, the home was owned by her brother and he expected me to pay $400 rent, and she had no monthly income. I doubt if she had ever really been a doctora either! But when i bailed out from her home i found my way to te north coast and have buonced back to the uSA a couple of times, but always comer back to Suncampdr. It is a great place to retire.

    Lived in Haiti for 5 years before retirement. Wanted to come here and help the older Haitians in the bateys for retirement. The fact that pensions go a lot further here makes it sweet. The fact that there is no snow, ice, or cold here makes it even sweeter. I don't like the way too frequent power outages but you have to give and take sometimes.

    Hi, I am Dutch. I worked for a NGO here from 1991-1999. Got back to Europe. Got married to my second wife, dominican. Then we decided to retire (I am 57) in 2016/17, but got tired from the country. Now we come and go. I prefer Tenerife, Algarve and other European parts.

    I am here by a sort of default.

    I stay here by utter laziness and lethargy.

    The people are great,as long as you are rich.

    Ditto the ladies.

    I'm fed up of travelling.

    I don't have room on my brain hard disk for another language after learning Spanish to survive.

    Tickets to anywhere out of here are ridiculously expensive.

    Thinking or any ability to be competent at anything but paying is not necessary.

    They let you stay as long as you like and you just pay on leaving..(That's actually number one..)

    Drivers license or infractions can be substituted by a 500 peso note.

    Somebody told me there is a beach and nice water to swim in.But I can't confirm that personally.

    Weather is the best of all the other crappy expensive Caribbean islands and the chicas are far cuter (see item2) and the beer's not too bad or expensive.

    OK, Just heard that the countryside is apparently 'beautiful'. Cannot confirm that but probably true.






    And don't have the money to live back in the South of France.


    Next?
