May 22, 2024 | Dominican Republic Villas, News

Have you decided that your future lies in living abroad? While embracing the expat life is a big decision with plenty to be excited about, it’s also important to be ready for the change of lifestyle that comes with living in a new country.

For nearly 30 years, Casa Linda has welcomed expats worldwide to the Dominican Republic’s (DR) stunning shores and helped them find the perfect villa to call home. Next, we will tell you about life in the Dominican Republic and how our gated communities can make you feel right at home. Keep reading to find out more!

Discover the Crown Jewel of the Caribbean

Often referred to as the “Crown Jewel of the Caribbean,” the Dominican Republic is a stunning tropical paradise that countless expats and tourists visit year after year. Beyond the miles and miles of tropical views and sandy beaches, the DR also boasts a strong and stable economy, infrastructure and state-of-the-art healthcare. As one of the most visited nations in the Caribbean, welcoming approximately 5 million visitors every year, the Dominican Republic is not only an incredible tourist destination but a great place to call home as an expat living abroad.

A Beach Lover’s Paradise

Whether you’re planning on spending your retirement years with your toes in the sand or you want to try your hand at something a bit more adventurous, like kite surfing, you’re in luck! The Dominican Republic is home to more than 200 beaches and over 800 miles of beautiful coastline just waiting for you to explore. With over 300 days of sunshine each year, living in the Dominican Republic is a beach lover’s paradise!

Currency and Language

One of the many perks of living in the Dominican Republic as an expat is that both the currency and language are reasonably accessible. What we mean by that is that the official currency of the Dominican Republic is Pesos. Still, US dollars are also commonly used. With a favourable exchange rate, your Canadian or American dollars can go further! Similarly, the official language of the DR is Spanish, but due to the island’s large expat community, English is ubiquitous as well.

Embrace Island Time

Life in the Dominican Republic differs from what you may expect coming from North America. This is because island time is a real thing! If you’re used to punctuality and the hustle and bustle of busy city living, you may need to adjust your expectations once you move abroad. Both locals and expats alike are notoriously easygoing and tend to work on their own time schedule at their own pace, which is much more laid back than you may think. All this is simply part of living the life tranquilo on a beautiful tropical island!

Your New Community of Fellow Expats

If you have any hesitations about living in the Dominican Republic because you’re worried you’ll feel out of place, don’t fret! At Casa Linda, our luxury villas are located on the island’s Northern end in our beautiful and welcoming gated communities. With plenty of fellow expats from all walks of life, community events, clubs, and other opportunities to meet new people, our team is sure you’ll have no problem making new friends. Our communities are built with our owners in mind because your happiness matters most to us here at Casa Linda!
