The Joys of the Dominican Republic

Dominican Republic – another affordable country for sun-loving boomers and prospect expat retires. This is great news!! Our Dominican Republic collaborator has new locations and opportunities on our radar screen.

Welcome to invest in the Dominican Republic

Imagine a place in the Caribbean surrounded by a contrast between the mountains, the sea, and a beautiful marina bringing to life the perfect harmony between natural beauty and human creativity. A place where summer lasts all year long and every day begins with a new experience; exploring incredible destinations, enjoying a safe and familiar environment.

Well, stop imagining, keep up the speed with us and soon we will publish great properties opportunities.

FUTURE PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT

Offering the highest standard in commodity and luxury whether it’s in its exclusive hotels or in any of its many residences; apartments, villas and townhouses, you will find in Samaná Bay and Sabana de la Mar your dream come true,  The Samaná Peninsula is known to have one of the most beautiful bays in the world.

The Dominican Republic has a modern airport system in the main regions of the country, providing comfortable and efficient access. Given its privileged location in the bay, sailing from Puerto Rico, Bahamas and Florida is ideal for those who rather arrive by water.

You will find both locations in the following map.

Start building a network of professionals and friends overseas as the stepping stones to a great life overseas…

I don’t need to remind you of the problems we are facing today, in North America and elsewhere. You may already be watching your nest egg shrink…and, like many, may already be taking a hit on your day-to-day quality of life.

So, we get excited around the idea of a brand-new start in a brand-new place where you can enjoy all the things you might be missing out on right now.

Then, reality sets in.

You will have to sort through an overwhelming number of possibilities out there, making all of us tipsy when thinking about crossing the fence to a complete new setting in life.

First, let´s check some basic ideas to help you see if living or retiring overseas works for you.

People who chose to retire overseas weren’t prepared to settle for an average retirement. They were looking for a better quality life under a lower income.

The word “retirement” has nothing to do with checking out or taking it easy, unless you want it to and could afford to. Maybe this is your case, here you will find great places were you could improve your golf swing or join a bridge club…or you could spend your days lazing in a hammock beneath a palm tree. And no one would think any less of you.

For the rest of us who are not ready to take up a position on the sidelines of life, there are plenty of options to show you here in Ecuador, South America. And, I am pretty sure they could be applied in other Latin American countries.

The world is alive with opportunities for fun and for profit, no matter what your age. That’s because it is easier today than ever before to live, travel, invest, and retire as best suits your personal agenda.

Now, if all this ideas are for you, then you should start working on a plan to make your dream come true. My first suggestion will be to start building an online network of people (professionals and friends) that will help you along the journey.

I know sometimes it is difficult to garner the right information. They usually tell you that you are not going to find reliable answers to your life-overseas questions by simply surfing the web…or reading all the books you can find on the subject.

I believe that if we pull together to provide the right information online from honest professionals at each local place, we will be able to overcome this sort of limitation.

Apply your common sense and ask every question that you can possibly conceive. On this blog, we should be able to provide an open source of information for your plans to live overseas, and not to depend only on paid sources from people who have experience traveling or living overseas and making a profit out of it.

If you like to share o become friends to help others online, please write something about your experiences when going overseas. Here you have few topics to start springing ideas in you:

How much money do I need to set aside for going overseas? Should I sell my house? Will I rent a property overseas or should I buy?

Things like local health care, Immigration laws, ways to make an extra income, local customs and the way they deal with foreigners, how to buy property, especially in developing markets, any main issues faced by all would-be overseas retirees…

Good luck and welcome to the Global Community!
