I can't find that thread about the price per/month for living in D.R. My budget Is 1000us/mth. Have found rentals in Costambar for 300 to 500. Another 500 for expenses and can go to 2000/mth if need be. I saw a post where the general concensus was 5 to 8k/mth. Wow, I think I can buy or build for 60k, am I out to lunch.
