Ditch Your Winter Gear for Good!

Let’s face it: winters in most of Canada and the United States are borderline unbearable, with freezing temperatures, snow, and ice making walking down the street not only difficult but potentially dangerous. But what if we told you there was a way to ditch winter weather for good? There is! With a luxury villa from Casa Linda in the Dominican Republic, you can kiss winter goodbye once and for all!

The weather in the Dominican Republic is nearly perfect all year round, with slight seasonal variations. Typically, the cooler season runs from November to April and has relatively low humidity and precipitation, with temperatures averaging around 23ºC (76ºF). However, during the warmer months (May to October), the island has an average temperature of 31ºC (87ºF). With no threat of hurricanes on the Northern tip of the island, where Casa Linda’s luxury villas are located, the Dominican Republic truly is a tropical island paradise 365 days a year!

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!

Embrace Island Living: Life in the Dominican Republic

Are you looking to leave winter behind you once and for all? Then, you should move to the Dominican Republic (DR) with the help of Casa Linda and our stunning luxury villas. Known for its renowned beaches, vibrant culture, and relaxed lifestyle, the DR is a beautiful tropical paradise to call home! Keep reading to find out more about what living in the Dominican Republic is like.

Immerse Yourself in Local Culture and Traditions

The Dominican Republic is rich in culture, history, and numerous traditions. Whether you’re a history junkie on the lookout for a new historical site to explore or an adventurous diner looking for a new cultural dish to sink your teeth into, the Dominican Republic has you covered!

The DR hosts numerous events, festivals, and activities throughout the year to keep you busy and immersed in the local culture. From watching the stunning tropical sunset on Sosua Beach to sitting down and enjoying the Jazz Festivals and over live music events, there’s always something to do!

Much like you’d expect from any North American city, the Dominican Republic also hosts numerous concerts, shows, sporting events, and more. So whether you want to experience the cultural traditions of the DR or kick back and relax with some beachside tunes, we are sure you’ll find plenty to do in paradise.

Your New Relaxed Lifestyle with Casa Linda

One thing many of Casa Linda’s villa owners are surprised to discover when they begin living in the Dominican Republicis the relaxed lifestyle and atmosphere of the island. After a long day of working, many DR locals relax on the beach and soak up the sun. That means many shops, especially those in tourist hotspots, tend to close around noon for lunchtime and reopen in the late afternoon. With many shops and restaurants closed on Sundays, Sunday is the perfect day to spend time with friends and family or focus on a new or old hobby.

At Casa Linda, our gated communities encourage our residents to take advantage of island life’s slowed-down and relaxed pace. Instead of worrying about the hustle and bustle, focus on what matters most to you. Whether taking up kite surfing, pursuing a new hobby, or joining one of our community clubs, living in the Dominican Republic is all about doing what you love most!

Accessibility and Connectivity

The Dominican Republic is immensely popular among tourists and expats alike. With the island’s multiple international airports that receive direct flights from over 26 countries across North America and Europe, travelling to and from the island is easy! That means travel is more straightforward if you have friends or family back home who’d like to drop in and stay a while.

Also, if you’re worried about moving into one of Casa Linda’s luxury villas and feeling out of place, we have you covered! Our gated communities are incredibly welcoming and include expats from all across the world. With numerous community events, we are sure you’ll have no problem meeting new friends and cultivating a community you love.

Ready to Move Abroad?

The DR is a stunning tropical island chock-full of opportunities to make new friends, experience something new, and explore a rich cultural history. If you’re ready to take your first step to living in the Dominican Republic, Casa Linda is here to help!

Embrace the Rhythm: Living the Dominican Republic’s Vibrant Lifestyle at Casa Linda

Embrace the Rhythm: Living the Dominican Republic’s Vibrant Lifestyle at Casa Linda

When you join the Casa Linda community in the Dominican Republic, you quickly learn that time moves differently on the island! Instead of the hustle and bustle of North American culture, people in the Caribbean are all about leisure, rest and relaxation. If we had to define island life in one word, it would be tranquilo, meaning calm or relaxed in Spanish.

If you are curious about the lifestyle in the Dominican Republic and how to prepare for your move, keep reading.

The Most Common Culture Shock: Friendliness!

Casa Linda’s community is located on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, which has developed a large population of expats over the last 40 years. When you join the Casa Linda community, you can expect a warm welcome, friendly neighbours, many social events and excellent services for anything you need.

When Americans move to the Dominican, the most common culture shock they experience is how friendly our society is— and it’s true! Here in the DR, people will always take the time to say hi, ask how you’re doing, and catch up. We have a very sociable culture; Dominican people will always take the time to chat with you, even if they are busy.

Embrace the Culture

The best advice we can give a new arrival is to embrace the culture despite whatever differences you may experience. Immerse yourself in the culture, like learning a little bit of Spanish and taking a dancing class, or learning how to dance the merengue.

To thrive in the Dominican Republic, you should be open-minded to Latin culture. Most people can speak some English, but it is helpful to know a bit of Spanish to communicate with the people providing you services.

The inside of Casa Linda’s gated community may be quiet and tranquilo, but don’t let that fool you! Dominicans might value a calm and relaxing life, but we can get quite loud! When you venture into Cabarete and surrounding cities, you will notice a lot of music, motorbikes, shouting and laughter. We are fun loving, expressive people who cannot wait to get to know you.

Enjoy the Active Lifestyle

Unlike Canada or the United States, the Dominican Republic is beautiful all year round; the winters are pleasantly warm, and the summers are scorching hot. No matter the time of year, it’s always the right time for a dip in your villa’s private pool.

Whether you are a retiree in the golden years of your life or a family with young children, the Dominican Republic is a beautiful place to live. We attract a lot of snowbirds at Casa Linda, so the winter season is always jam packed with fun activities, like free live music, yoga classes or festive parties.

Visit the Dominican Republic

At the end of the day, your lifestyle in the Dominican Republic is whatever you want it to be. If you have a more active lifestyle, there are endless water sports, local dance lessons, and running locations to enjoy. If laying on the beach, soaking up the sun and drinking tropical beverages is more your speed, you can do that too.

Get a taste of the Dominican lifestyle before you invest in the vacation home of your dreams with Casa Linda. If you are considering moving to the Dominican Republic, get in touch with the Casa Linda team to learn more about renting a villa.

Community Events

At Casa Linda, a Community Engagement staff member is constantly working on scheduling fun events and activities to bring the whole community together. Many of the best events happen during the peak season of fall and winter because that is when most snowbirds fly in and begin their winter hibernation.

Every year in December, Casa Linda throws the highly anticipated Christmas party for all the owners. For many, it is the highlight of their year and something they actively look forward to. There’s a bounty of food, drinks and good vibes all night long. Owners come from all over the world to celebrate with each other during the holiday season because, at Casa Linda, you will make friendships and memories that last a lifetime.

Other community events include the November Jazz Festival that Casa Linda sponsors, where the owners hop on the shuttle to the festival site and dance the night away! Casa Linda’s full-time event planner focuses on events that interact with the on-site amenities, like the annual Waterpark BBQ! You can expect to be invited to many events, like tours, shopping, exercise classes, dances, and movie nights, when you join the Casa Community!

Nearby Amenities

Soak up the sun from the privacy of your own villa’s backyard and pool, or visit one of the Dominican Republic’s famous white sand beaches only minutes from Casa Linda.

When you own a villa with Casa Linda, owners can access Cabarete Beach’s exclusive Beach Club with discounts and complimentary beach chairs galore!

We are just outside the major city of Sosúa, where you can mingle amongst locals and experience the authentic Dominican Republic lifestyle. Eat, drink, shop and be merry! Casa Linda offers shuttle services for owners that will take you wherever you need to go and pick you up afterward!

With excellent food and daily happy hour specials, Castaway’s Clubhouse & Eatery is the buzzing hub of Casa Linda, where many groups meet up for events.
