    You sound like a possible candidate for a job in one of the many call centers. Check them out. Some located in free zones.

    I think you maybe aren't gtting a large response because people aren't sure what to tell you.
    If you do a search on here, you will see lots of replies to similar questions. Most will say that the Dominican job market is not very good. Don't expect to make much money when you are working down there. Companies put call centers there because labor is cheap. So it will be very hard for you to make beter that a below average living. If you aren't sure what kind of lifestyle that will provide, let me be the first to say that it isn't very good.
    As for your husband that doesn't speak any Spanish. I think his prospects are worse. His best bet would probably be to tap the tourist industry somehow. Of course that takes venture capital and a very strong working knowledge of how to deal with all the government crooks that are in his pockets all the time.
    I hate to soun so discouraging. I have looked at the situation myself and find it too risky for my family. Many other people have tried it. Some have succeeded and others (many more) have failed.
    It is easy to want to escape the rat race for an island paradise. But the nuts and bolts of the move are not any fun.
    I haven't been much help other that to discourage you. Search this website. Others may do better than myself here.

    See list of free zones here.

    Contact the people at Adozona. They can probably provide you with a list of call centers.
