I am looking for land in the north part of the Samana peninsula (such as Las Terrenas, Coson, etc.).

How would I find out who owns property in this area? Some places, such as in the United States, have their records available online, and anyone can access the records via a computer. For example, you type in an address or a name and the records will show who owns that piece of land and when it was bought and how much it last sold for.

Am I able to do this for land on the northern coast of the Samana peninsula, or do I actually have to spend hours inside an office digging through paper records?
