How about some of the pros and cons of living in the different areas/cities in the DR? Interested in retiring to the DR and would be very interested in hearing everyone's opinions and why. North coast? East? The capital? Santiago?
You have to figure it you for yourself.
It's so subjective.
1st, you can decide if you prefer to be on the coast, inland in the valleys, or up in the mountains.
Then you decide if you want to be a hermit or live close to your peers.
That will at least give you a starting point for your search, but the only way to know what you like is go check it out.
