Ever since Columbus came ashore in 1493, the Dominican Republic has been a place where worlds mix.
It’s this melange of African, European, North American, and Latin cultures that makes the DR so appealing to foreigners.
Over 5 million people visited the island in 2012, making it the number 1 tourist destination in the entire Caribbean.
They come for the vibrant culture and beautiful climate. They stay for the low cost of living and efficient real estate market.
And THE place to be on this not-so-little island?
The place to be is fast becoming the DR’s North Coast.
Think that a relaxed island lifestyle is too far from home?
From the eastern part of North America, fly here in 4 hours or less.
You can catch a flight first thing in the morning and be on a tropical beach by afternoon. It’s really that close!
From Western Europe, it’s 8 or 9 hours.
No matter where you depart, you’ll soon arrive at Puerto Plata’s modern, yet comfortably sized, international airport.
And then from there, you can be at your villa in 20 minutes
On the North Coast, you can enjoy the full Caribbean lifestyle—at a fraction of the price.
Here you can live well, even on a pensioner’s budget.
