My wife and I are planning a move to the DR next spring/summer. As a mater of fact we will be there next week house hunting. Is there any kind of formal/informal Expat group there. We are moving from the US but an US only group is not priority. Just a frendly group to get and share information with and maybe socialize with. Thanks

Could you refine that down a bit for us Bob?? North, South, or East of the island??

Large Ex-Pat community in the north around Sosua, Cabarete, Puerto Plata & Costamber & although no FORMAL meetings as far as I know for next week, the odd "Bar Night" with darts or similar might be gong on somewhere!! PM me if you are coming North & I'll fill you in on what/where! ~ Grahame.

We are here...

HI Bob there are a number of us here on the North COast. I am a Canadian living in Puerto Plata. I know several others as well, plus some Americans, British etc etc.....

I am sure many of them will make themselves known.

When are you coming, where are you staying and what help do you need???

Just let us know and those that can help - usually will....

And of course you will have to come to Santiago

For shopping, like most North Coasters, they end up going on occasion. It is so funny to see all these beet red people and bleached blonds all wrinkled from that sun they so love, walking the aisles of Price Smart or El Nacional and even among the people in El Pola....:D:D:D

Y'all be welcomed fer kawphy at the ol' hovel, enny time y' all's in town...

If'fn y'all kin reed that, yer more 'n welcome!!

HB :D:D:D


The "kawphy" is an old football joke....

Shame you will miss a pre-wedding party on Saturday 23rd Oct. in Sosua .. for Debby and Brian from England. They to will be returning to Sosua to live.

It would have been a good chance for you to meet some local people. Also there is a local group get-together - the International Residents Club.. we meet on the first Friday of every month ... you can contact me direct for more information.

I live in Sosua with my 2 children aged 12 & 14. We are from England.. we have lived in Sosua for 2.1/2 years.

If you would like to meet up when you are in Sosua please PM me.

I will be at the Coral Marien from the 19th thru the 25th, maybe we can hook up and I could introduce you to some of the ex Pats in the area and the ones on this board will always be helpful as they have been for myself if you have any questions for them.

Badpiece does NOT live in the country, he is from NY. He does however spend almost as much time down here as he does working, is VERY knowledgable on the country as he has been coming here since he was a sprog, & certainly knows most of the decent local Ex-Pats!! A HIVE of information for you in the hotel end of next week!! Just watch out when going to the discoes with him ...... he has a habit of finding the young ladies!! ~ Grahame.
