    The DR generally probably hasn't changed too much since you left, what was it, 7 months ago? Have you?

    Default AR is great. no crime, no problems!

    But my novia is from the RD. In have spent several days in Rio San Juan. The town seems without crime. Many houses with no bars, the hotel does not require security, there are no security guards toting shotguns, and a few residents, shop owners, and others relate no problems. I just wanted other opinions.

    PapaB,
    Please forgive me, but it's difficult to take you seriously. All of your discussion about your previous problems in DR - not just in Cabarete but Juan Dolio, typhoid, dengue, police persecution, Haitians... you were leaving the country forever if I'm not mistaken... now you want to try again?

    I think you had a run of very bad luck, but I do wonder about your ability to judge where it's okay to live.

    Remember your own words "Illusion versus Reality". 5 years of visiting Cabarete and you didn't see 'reality' til you moved here. Now it's Rio San Juan & you're thinking maybe you found your place in the sun. For your sake, I truly hope it's right for you.

    ps: i supported you in your claims in the other thread as i knew what you were reporting at the time regarding crime in cabarete was real while others were saying you exaggerated

    RSJ is a very nice and friendly litle town, but there is crime and drugs there also.

    Rio San Juan will have a new power plant within the next 90 days which should improve the electricity in that area greatly

    Default power in Rio San Juan

    Do you really think that electricity in Rio San Juan is going to improve soon? It is always hard to believe what they say.
