    Default You will be the first....

    Gringo that is or even Dominican for that matter to live in Plaza Turisol, My Lawyer Argentina Brugal ( As in Rum Family) has her office in that plaza along with many Tour operators.

    I would recommend a nice apartment or house rather then living in a mall, However perhaps you have in mind to run your Business in the front and live in the loft upstairs....

    Good luck

    I think those of us who live here assumed that is what you meant. The area is near the main road, so good for getting public transport, but if your place is very near the road, you will of course get motorconcho & traffic noise. In that area, I would check if you are at the bottom of an incline. Rain can be torrential here, & it washes all sorts down the streets with it, so being at the bottom is not good news. Power supply should be no worse than anywhere else in the area. There are local colmados, corner stores, but it is a bus ride to nearest supermarkets & the centre of town. Hope this helps.

    I think you will find that the lady concerned was asking about an AREA, not the property itself. Not to worry though, we on the North Coast realised what was being asked & have advised her about the area near Plaza Turisol on the outskirts of Puerto Plata!

    Does Betancourt have representitives up here on the north coast now by the way & what properties do you have for rent up here? I have many incoming visitors each month that are looking for rental properties up here & I would like to help them out if possible. - Grahame.

    I used to live in the area of Plaza Tourisol my first year in the DR. I found it quite nice actually, very "middle class" , guaguas easily accessible, great neighbours and generally a great place to live.
    What exactly do you want to know about the area?

    Default My mistake

    Sorry I was confused, for some reason I was thinking about an area here in Santo Domingo.
    I only work with Santo Domingo, La Romana, and I have a person who works for me in the area of Santiago.
    I have a lot of properties ranging from US $900.00 or equivalent in pesos up to US $6,000.00. Everything with generators and with the best qualities you could find in town, for foreignersí transferring to these areas in Dominican Republic.
