I will try to keep this short but as is my MO I probably will not!

A bit of background: I have lived in the DR (Sosua, POP and Imbert) for extended periods of time. I am married to a Dominicana (not from Sosua or any other tourist area). We have been together since feb 2006. We have been married for 6 years and have been living in the US since 2008. We have a 6 year old little girl together and a 12 year old that is my step daughter.

We live in NY, nowhere near NY city (thank God). My girls recieve an excellent education here and are doing very good in school.

OK... yes, I am a tad older than my wife. I turned 61 just today!

Because I want to retire when I am 62 we are contemplating moving to the D.R. in a little more than a year when I turn 62 and can collect SS from the U.S.

We have always liked the Santiago area because of many things which it is not important to bring up. Suffice it to say we like Santiago.

1) Are there any accredited US (english schools) and what is the cost?
2) Is there any "urbanizations" of moderate cost that have some ex-pats?
3) In these areas what would be the cost to rent a 3-4 bedroom house, preferably with a small pool?

I guess that is a good start. Would appreciate the input.

If the mods move this to the Santiago ( Central DR ) forum it will probably get some replies. Good luck Mr. D
