Hello everyone,

Just joined the forum and was happy to see so many ppl from the DR.
I lived in Santo Domingo for about 4 years more than 10 years ago. I went to medical school there.
It was a great experience and loved the ppl there and ofcourse the beautiful beaches were just the icing on the top.

Thinking of returning and revisiting with my family now.

I know a lot must have changed over the last decade. What should i be most prepared for?

More cars on the road. New highways to the east and round Santo Domingo. Prices increased - a lot in some cases. Hotter and drier. Welcome aboard.

I do remember weather being very hot but beautiful warm beaches made up for it. Hard to find such beauty in most places.

Traffic and cost of living seems to be going up everywhere it seems unfortunately...

Welcome to the board. I do not know if the Metro existed in Santo Domingo where you lived here.
