Sun, Sand, and Adventure: Best Things To Do in the Dominican Republic

Sun, Sand, and Adventure: Best Things To Do in the Dominican Republic

There is much to see, do and experience in the Dominican Republic! Whether you are keen to try kitesurfing or learn how to dance the merengue, there is a never-ending list of fun activities and experiences waiting for you in the Dominican.

Casa Linda’s might have all the amenities you need and more, but there is so much more to the Dominican Republic outside of our gated community!

Diving in Sosúa Bay

Experience the crystal clear waters, thriving coral reefs and abundant marine life in Bahía de Sosúa (Sosúa Bay). Located only a thirty-minute drive from the Casa Linda community, Sosúa Bay is well-known to be one of the best diving spots in the Dominican.

The healthy coral reefs lining Sosúa beach are thriving and teeming with schools of tropical fish. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of a sea turtle! If diving isn’t your thing, don’t worry. The beach is exquisite, and one of the best places to watch the sunset on the north coast!

Sunbathe at Playa Alicia

One of the Dominican Republic’s best beaches is less than 15 minutes away from Casa Linda. Playa Alicia is far less crowded than Sosúa Beach, as it’s further away from the hustle and bustle of the city center. If crowds aren’t your thing, Playa Alicia is the best beach for you.

If you’re looking for things to do in the Dominican Republic, you will never go wrong with visiting one of the 200+ beaches hidden around the Dominican. Playa Alicia is a natural paradise with golden sand, palm trees, distant mountain views, and calm waters where you can swim leisurely.

Surfing at Playa Encuentro

Hands down, the best surfing found on the island is at Playa Encuentro, which is only a 15-minute drive east of Casa Linda! If you have ever been interested in learning how to surf and shred the waves, Playa Encuentro is the perfect place to learn.

Just outside of Cabarete, this is the surfing spot for locals and tourists alike. The reef has five different breaks, making it the ideal location for beginners, intermediates and expert surfers. Whether you’re learning to surf or have years of experience, Playa Encuentro will serve you the waves of your dreams!

Hiking in Cordillera Septentrional

Have you ever experienced the sights, sounds and smells of the rainforest? Unless you’ve travelled through South America, you likely have never seen a rainforest. Well, that’s all about to change in the Dominican Republic; the DR is home to the most northern rainforest in the world!

Hiking the Cordillera Septentrional mountain range will introduce you to sights we guarantee you’ve never seen. We recommend leaving your villa early in the morning, as it’s a two-hour drive inland from Casa Linda to the Cordillera Septentrional mountain range. This mountain range is unlike any you’re familiar with in North America.

Ask Casa Linda’s dedicated Community Events Coordinator to recommend the best hiking trails!

Live Luxuriously in the Dominican Republic

You can live life to the fullest at Casa Linda without worrying about natural disasters or hurricanes; there are no recorded hurricanes in the Sosúa and Cabarete areas. Located on the north end of the Dominican Republic, Casa Linda is the perfect location for expats looking to retire in style on a tropical island. There is no shortage of things to do in the Dominican Republic; we promise you will never be bored!

Luxury Built, Just For You: Casa Linda Villas in Sosúa, Dominican Republic

Buying a villa at Casa Linda is not like other vacation home communities. Instead of purchasing a pre-built, ready-made villa that looks identical to every other one in the neighbourhood, Casa Linda villas are made to order. We offer 15 different floor plans that can all be customized to your exact specifications.

At Casa Linda, there are endless possibilities to create your perfect vacation villa near Sosúa, Dominican Republic. Keep reading to learn about the perks of custom-building the tropical villa of your dreams!

Perfection Takes Time

As all villas are built especially for the owner, the lot is an untouched land of opportunity. Not only is the villa’s interior customizable, but you also have total creative control over the exterior! Whether you stay true to the standard floor plan, enhance the landscaping or expand the pool, ground isn’t broken until the papers are signed!

The buying and building process can take anywhere between 7 to 9 months, depending on the amount of customizations or expansions. That might seem like a long time because you want to start enjoying the tropical lifestyle immediately! But believe us, the wait will be worth it.

Casa Linda uses the highest quality building materials; all villas have a modern luxury finish. You can find a list of possible customization options here, but the real limitations to customizations will be your budget and imagination!

Established Community

Are you used to living in suburban neighbourhoods with nearby neighbours? Life feels much the same at Casa Linda, except within a tropical environment! Over the last 40 years, the north coast of the Dominican Republic has been home to expats from all over the world! The majority of owners at Casa Linda are retired expats from North America or Europe, so the extra time construction takes is often beneficial, especially when applying for residency.

Casa Linda is a gated community located between the beach towns of Sosúa and Cabarete, home to some of the best beaches and surfing on the island! Not only will you be building the perfect villa for full or part-time living, you can expect to receive a warm welcome from our established and friendly community.

Safe, Secure and Serene

The north coast is a very safe area for locals, expats and tourists alike, but Casa Linda prioritizes the safety of our owners and their families above all else. The surrounding area is quite safe, but Casa Linda is a gated community with 24/7 security for added peace of mind.

Many villa owners only stay on their property for half the year, typically during their home country’s winter months! The beauty of our dedication to security is that owners don’t have to worry about their villas when they’re away. We ensure all villas are properly maintained and cared for in your absence.

If you have concerns about natural disasters affecting your investment, don’t worry! There are no recorded hurricanes or natural disasters along the north coast. Casa Linda is sheltered from the worst tropical storms have to offer.

Your Villa, Your Way

Retiring in Paradise: Why Expats Choose Casa Linda’s Dominican Republic Luxury Villas

Retiring in Paradise: Why Expats Choose Casa Linda’s Dominican Republic Luxury Villas

It’s a significant decision to pack up your life and move to another country! At Casa Linda, we hear a lot from potential clients who have concerns about moving abroad to a very different country. For over 40 years, Casa Linda has developed a thriving community of expats from Canada, the United States, and Europe!

Casa Linda is a beloved and highly respected builder of modern luxury villas in the Dominican Republic! Below, we will discuss the top reasons why retired expats choose Casa Linda over any other DR community builder.

Steady & Rapidly Growing Economy

There is a common misconception that the Dominican Republic is a poor, struggling and underdeveloped country. That cannot be further from the truth. Our small island country might have been one of the poorest Latin American countries in the mid-1960s, but much has changed in the last 60 years.

In actuality, the Dominican Republic’s economy is the steadiest and fastest growing in Latin America. The Dominican’s standard of living is approximately one-third that of the United States. That’s a marked difference from other Latin countries, whose average standard of living is typically around one-quarter of the USA.

Risk-Free Property Investment

If the Dominican continues to grow at the same rate, it’s projected that in 40 years, the DR will have an advanced economy on par with other first-world countries. Investing in a Dominican Republic luxury villa through Casa Linda is a sound investment for your current lives in 2024 and your future as well!

Casa Linda has been in business for forty years, and our community has steadily grown. What originally started as a small community has grown into a massive neighbourhood with long-standing owners. We are one of the most trusted and respected builders in all of the Dominican.

Safe Location & Secure Gated Community

If you are concerned about natural disasters living on a tropical island, there is nothing to fear. Casa Linda is located on the north coast of the Dominican, in between the beach towns of Sosúa and Cabarete. There have been no recorded hurricanes to reach the north coast of the DR— ever! You don’t have to worry about the risk of losing your villa to a rogue storm.

Casa Linda takes the safety of our owners and their families very seriously. While our community is located in a safe part of the island, Casa Linda takes extra precautions to ensure the well-being of our residents. We are a gated community with 24/7 security, providing owners immense peace of mind— especially for those who only use their villas in the winter!

Live Life Luxuriously

Life at Casa Linda is like living full-time at an all-inclusive resort, except you get to enjoy the privacy of your own home. We are proud to have a tight-knit and welcoming community of expats worldwide who cannot wait to welcome you into our fold!

Better Than an All-Inclusive: Renting Your Dominican Republic Villa at Casa Linda

Better Than an All-Inclusive: Renting Your Dominican Republic Villa at Casa Linda

Buying a villa at Casa Linda in the Dominican Republic isn’t the only perk of owning a beautiful vacation home; you’re expanding your investment portfolio, too! If you’re searching for a part-time vacation home but full-time investment property, keep reading to learn about investing in property with Casa Linda.

Stable & Growing Economy

Investing overseas can certainly be risky, especially in a country you are unfamiliar with, but how much do you know about the Dominican Republic? It might surprise you that the Dominican Republic is one of Latin America’s fastest-growing countries.

Since the 1960s, our small island country has steadily grown out of poverty and into a prosperous and stable nation. The average standard of living in the Dominican Republic is one-third that of the United States, and it will only keep improving.

This is the time to invest in a vacation home outside your home country. Who doesn’t want to escape the winter months and soak up the sun in a luxury tropical villa? When you are not using the villa, there’s no sense in letting it sit empty waiting for your return! Why not make extra income on the side by signing up for Casa Linda’s Vacation Club?

Vacation Club

If you do not plan on living at Casa Linda full-time, why not sign your villa up for our successful Vacation Club program? Casa Linda handles everything in the vacation club, from advertising the villa to booking the guests and caring for them during their stay.

Some of our vacation club programs even have guaranteed rental income. What’s better than making passive income that you don’t need to worry about? There are a few perks to joining the vacation club, like trading your weeks for hundreds of similar properties worldwide, as well as daily housekeeping and pool and garden maintenance.

(When you purchase a Casa Linda villa and permanently join our community, your vacation club investment will be used to reduce your purchase price by the same amount within 18 months.)

Renting Your Villa

Casa Linda has connections with several excellent local rental management companies if the vacation club does not appeal to you. This is an excellent route for owners looking to keep their villas booked and busy in their absence and maintain a steady stream of rental income.

Casa Linda has simplified the rental process to be hands-off and stress-free for the owners. Our owners should be able to return home without worrying about the state of their villa, so we take care of everything on your behalf.

However, there are requirements to qualify your villa as a turnkey property. Namely, having a fully furnished and stocked villa, including linens, dishware, kitchenware, electronics, etc. The villa should have everything a renter needs to fully enjoy their stay, minus your personal effects, of course. If you need, Casa Linda has a comprehensive list of the required turnkey items.

Share Your Slice of Paradise

Located on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, Casa Linda’s luxury gated community is the top vacation spot for families and travellers alike. Our community has all the amenities, services and fun of an all-inclusive resort while staying in a private villa with a full kitchen, private pool, and more.
