We are in our late 40's and want to leave America. Things are getting bad here! We are deciding tween D.R. and Panama. Are their any Americans living there that can tell us the pros and cons of living in the D.R. Everyone we know is telling us to go to Panama. We are thinking of Sosua and buying a small home and just living simple. We are go-getters, not rich.. leaving here to live comfortably and safe there or Panama.
