Cost of Living in the Dominican Republic versus Canada

Cost of Living in the Dominican Republic versus Canada

Are you dreaming about a move to the Dominican Republic? You might think living in a luxurious private home on an island is out of your price range, but you’d be wrong! To get a better understanding of the cost of living in the Dominican Republic, we will use this blog to compare the cost of living in Canada to the Dominican Republic (DR). Below is that comparison. Keep reading to learn about how far your money will take you here!

Housing Market

In Canada, the average home costs approximately $709K CAD. The lowest average house price by province is around $300K, but you’ll only find this price range in the sparse or the windiest provinces. If you want a home with a pool, your average cost will skyrocket.

In comparison, Casa Linda villas start at just $310K CAD and come with your own private pool on a beautiful island. If you are looking for more rooms, a guest house, or a bar, let us know! We will work with you to completely customize your villa to your new DR lifestyle.

Join us in our Casa Linda gated community, which is only 10 minutes away from the best northern Dominican Republic beaches. Soak up the sun in paradise in a home you can afford.

Cost of Eating Out

In the DR, Canadian money has a higher value than our DR currency, the Dominican Peso (RD$). Because the Canadian dollar is worth almost RD$42, your money will go a lot further. In Canada, a dinner at a mid-range restaurant will cost you anywhere from $50 to $90 CAD per person, whereas our onsite authentic restaurant, Castaways, usually costs around $10 CAD.

A fast food chain in Canada might get you a meal for under $15 CAD, but an inexpensive restaurant in the Dominican Republic often costs less than $5 CAD.

Working Abroad and Retirement

Remote work has become increasingly popular over the last few years. Luckily for you, this means that you can work from anywhere: Your job doesn’t tie you down anymore, and with the cost of living in the Dominican Republic so low, there’s no better place to work from a laptop than from on the beach. What are you waiting for? Invest in your own DR property today!

The cost of living in the Dominican Republic is advantageous for those in Canada, making the DR a wonderful place for retirees and expats. The money you have saved to have a fun retirement shouldn’t be destroyed by inflation or consumed by necessities. Let your money take you further by moving to the Dominican Republic, and have a wonderful time sitting on the beach and soaking in the sun for your retirement years.

Dominican Life with Casa Linda Villas

Live your best life when you take advantage of the cost of living in the Dominican Republic. We can offer more than just a curated gated community, designated staff and security, and a short jaunt to one of the best north coast beaches. When you are ready to live your dreams, contact Casa Linda to talk about your future Casa Linda luxury villa.

How to Plan Your Move to the Dominican Republic

How to Plan Your Move to the Dominican Republic

Are you planning to move to the Dominican Republic soon? Great idea! The Dominican Republic is a beautiful country with many beaches and sunny weather almost year-round. But at Casa Linda, we understand that moving can be stressful. Between packing, lodging, and paperwork, there is so much potential for things to slip through the cracks! Below we outline three of the most important aspects of moving to the Dominican Republic (DR). Keep reading to learn how to plan your DR move, or check out more information on DR living.

How to Pack

To know what you need to pack, you must know what the weather is like in the Dominican Republic from season to season. Luckily, the DR has glorious weather all of the time, with only a short rainy season. No snow, hurricanes, or tornadoes to worry about! The average temperature here is a perfect 28 degrees Celsius almost year-round: you’ll only need your favorite summer outfits and a sweater or two to survive.

Here’s a quick list of the things you should bring with you:

  • Toiletries
  • Medications and prescriptions
  • Summer clothing
  • Bathing suits
  • Passports
  • Birth certificates
  • Insurance policies
  • Real estate documents

Remember to pack your travel documents and a tranquilo attitude: anything else you forget in your move to the Dominican Republic can be bought here. The cost of living is much lower here than in the US or Canada, so your dollar will go further.

Plan Your Stay

Do you know where you are moving to? If you plan to move to the Dominican Republic, your accommodations should be sorted out before starting your journey.

Having a beautiful location of your own is the perfect way to start over after moving to the Dominican Republic. Imagine swimming in your private pool in your own Dominican Republic backyard. Casa Linda creates custom luxury villas for you to enjoy the best of the Dominican Republic. Retirees looking for a new community in a new climate love our Casa Linda villas for their gated community activities, close amenities, private pool, and proximity to beaches.

Do you work remotely? It might be time to invest in a Dominican Republic villa! Work from the beach or at the side of your private pool. Starting at just $229K USD, you could be moving to the Dominican Republic before you know it! Check out our customizable villas and see which luxury villa is perfect for you.

Is Buying Property in the Dominican Republic Smart?

Is Buying Property in the Dominican Republic Smart?

Paradise calls to you for your retirement. Where you decide to retire or work remotely makes a huge difference in your quality of life. So why choose the Dominican Republic (DR)? Below, we outline why choosing to invest in Dominican Republic property is smart. Keep reading to find out about the financial and health implications of moving to the DR.

Good Investment Opportunities

Buying property in the Dominican Republic is a great investment opportunity! Over the last ten years, properties in the Dominican Republic have increased in popularity among expats, retirees, and people working remotely. Grab your own villa before there are no lots left! Every year, we see more people buying property in the Dominican Republic, and with limited space, you need to act soon to secure a luxury villa!

A huge benefit of owning the villa is that instead of throwing away money every holiday, you’ll be investing in a custom home you feel comfortable in while on your extended vacation. Return to your personal villa whenever you want, renting it out in between your stays with our help. Not only are you making a smart move with your money, you can also make money! Feel more comfortable in the DR when you invest in your own Dominican Republic property.

Value to Self

Resorts can be uncomfortable; you are staying in a room you know others have slept in, you haven’t had any say in what it looks like, and if you accidentally leave anything behind, you have lost it forever. A Casa Linda villa of your own will solve all of these problems, with so many added benefits. With our villas, you can fully customize your home, private pool, guest house, and more! A private villa increases your comfort on your holidays, should you choose to stay here only part-time.

For our owners planning to stay with us year-round, your villa is the most crucial aspect of a wonderful experience living in the Dominican Republic. You’ll get the opportunity to completely customize your vacation home, which will help you feel at ease at the end of your days. Want to bring your pets? Feel free! Your villa is your property in the Dominican Republic.

Safe from hurricanes, staffed with security guards, and a low cost of living all make Dominican Republic real estate prime targets for foreign investors looking for a sun-soaked paradise.
