With miles of stunning coastline, crystal blue oceans and breathtaking beauty around every corner -not to mention endless sunny days and warm weather- it’s no surprise that the Dominican Republic is one of the most coveted spots to relocate to for expatriates from all over the world.
The north end of the island, where Casa Linda’s communities are located is shielded during hurricane season, offers affordable housing, and has plenty of benefits for residents, including a much lower cost of living. If you’ve been looking into the realities of moving abroad, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn just how affordable life in the Dominican Republic can be. Below, we’ll highlight four areas where you can expect to save when living on the island!
It comes as no surprise that one of the biggest reasons people choose to relocate to the Dominican Republic is our affordable housing.

Did you know that the Dominican Republic has a world-class healthcare system featuring high-end facilities, leading medical experts and service in both English and Spanish? If your answer is no, you’re not alone! Healthcare is often one of the biggest surprise perks for potential ex-pats, and they’re even more excited when they find out that the cost for health insurance can be as low as $1200 a year per couple. Exceptional care at low costs gives immense peace of mind, especially for those that may have existing medical conditions or are highly concerned with planning for the future.
The benefits of living on a tropical island is that fresh produce and even your meat and dairy are often much cheaper than back home. New residents are often pleased to see just how much their weekly grocery bill drops and how much farther their budget can go. Best of all, you’ll even find many of your favourite treats in stores here as well!
Much like food and groceries, other essentials like power, water, internet and even cell phone service tends to be much cheaper than the rates that many are accustomed to. This is fantastic news for anyone looking to make their dollar go farther and hoping to extend their ability to enjoy their time in paradise.
