The best business in the DR is not to open a business at all. A 95% failure rate is probably optimistic.

Come here if you like the area to retire with enough of your own cash to do so.
Right you are...I had a job when I first came here. but the conditions here are very different than back home and the pay was much worse... so the job was discarded, as I really didnt need it.......

Working as an employee is the last thing you should want. Rewards are in no relation to what you are used to in the US and Europe.

What has already been said in this topic; bring your own money and enjoy.

Personally I like to do something; but where I myself determine 'how and when'.
If you also own your own house / apt, have a car, you can live a fairly carefree life.
(For now I commute back and forth 3 to 4 times a year ;))

The best business is not to be in business!
You can build a hotel and sign a contract with a company to run it under their brand.
Your income is set for the contract length.

Import distributor authorized agent.
You need only contracts and they do the whole work, from your export point to the importer on contract.

Data broker.
You buy data from sources in the DR, compile and sort. Create a database and sell the mined data to agents direct real time by contract online.

Plenty others!

Right about not being in business... the middleman approach is best.........

I like selling options (cash covered puts and stock covered calls) on large cap, dividend champion stocks. If you've got enough to start a business in LRD you can make 10%-20%. All you need is a couple of hours a day and a halfway decent smart phone. You can do it anywhere, a taxi, colmado, living room, gym, or bedroom. It's under the radar, you look just like all the other kids playing with their phones. Of course like most of the other ideas we read about on here experience helps, but if you stick to the selected stocks, open your trades slightly out of the money with one to three months until expiration, and stay out of margin situations your money is pretty safe. The worst that happens is you end up holding 100 shares of a decent business for a few months longer than you wanted, all the while collecting dividends and premiums.
