Find A Peaceful Life by Retiring in the Dominican Republic

Looking for the perfect retirement spot? Your retirement should be the best years of your life, and when you retire to the Dominican Republic, it will be! Read on to discover why the Dominican Republic is the number one location you should consider moving to for your retirement.

Beaches, Private Pools, and Your Villa

Our gated community is only 7 minutes away from the nearest beach and only 30 minutes away from the highly photogenic and rightfully famous Puerto Plata. Take advantage of the 28-degree Celsius weather we get year-round and soak up some sun on one of our beautiful beaches. But if the people at the public beach are too much for you some days, that’s the perfect time to use your private pool! You’ll always have access to water and sun in the Dominican Republic.

Did you know our Casa Linda villas are entirely customizable? Starting at just $229K USD, you can have your very own custom luxury villa in paradise for your retirement in the Dominican Republic. A private pool in your backyard, custom villa design, and the ability to add a hobby shack and bar: what could be better?

Close to Delicious Restaurants and Bars

Castaways is our very own Casa Linda eatery for our villa owners. Say hi! We’d love to show you authentic Dominican food. If you’re looking for a new location to explore, many restaurants are scattered all over the island. It’s up to you to explore them all after retiring to the Dominican Republic! You’ll also find some fantastic bars around. Ask us about our recommendations for the best drink spots around the island, or stick close to home and drink at Castaways! We have happy hour specials daily, and we love hearing about your adventures.

Weekly Activities and Annual Events

When you retire to the Dominican Republic, you’ll find endless possibilities for your daily activities. If you’re looking for a retirement that doesn’t consist of only beach days, the Casa Linda gated community is for you. We host weekly yoga classes, Zumba classes, and sports games for our owners who want to live an active lifestyle. Or search the island for other classes you are interested in: you won’t have to look far! We can take you there with our Casa Linda shuttle.

Between weekly fitness classes, check out any of our events! We have annual December holiday parties, a yearly barbecue in the summer, and much more. Plus, we give our owners tickets and transportation to the local annual jazz festival.

…Or Live Tranquilo

In the DR, we live our daily lives more peacefully and far less rushed than people in the US and Canada. You will find that the average person has very little stress in their daily lives, and this is because we follow a tranquilo way of living. The tranquilo lifestyle is slow, taking one day at a time. There’s no need to look at the time every hour, as there is no rush in the DR. Your time is your own, and there is no pressure to do or create on any schedule. Retire in the Dominican Republic and unwind from your years of constant stress.

Need we say more?

Low Cost Of Living

Compared to life in Europe, Canada and the US, the Dominican Republic is significantly more affordable. Say you have a monthly income of 3,000 USD per couple, and you and your partner can live a luxurious lifestyle as your budget can stretch much further when you retire to the Dominican Republic. Dental and healthcare are also significantly more affordable than in the USA, so you won’t have to worry about extravagant medical expenses.

Retirement (Pensionado) Visa

Those travelling to the Dominican Republic under a standard or temporary visa must wait a certain period of time to upgrade their status.

With that said, if you apply for a retirement visa (Pensionado Visa), you can easily upgrade your status to permanent residency! Instead of paying taxes on your global income after a period of time, you will only have to pay taxes on your local income. When you purchase a home in the Dominican Republic, you can also enjoy the perks of an investment visa!

Affordable Luxury Villas

Aside from the great weather, low living costs and great retirement and investment perks, there is another reason why you should retire to the Dominican Republic, and that reason (drumroll please) is affordable luxury villas!

Getting Started

The best way to ensure you have a smooth process is to begin planning early on to allow yourself enough time to handle all relevant details. The Dominican Republic is incredibly welcoming to foreign property purchasers, but before you move to the home-buying phase, it’s important to consider the following first:

Your Current And Projected Financial Standing

As with any major life investment, your finances are a major factor when making decisions.

Casa Linda is proud to offer our homebuyers exceptional floor plans that start as low as $199,000 USD. Coupled with the low cost of living in the Caribbean, your budget will go much farther than in other countries and allow you to lead a comfortable lifestyle for years to come!

Everyone’s lifestyle is a little different, and before you commit to moving, it’s important to carefully evaluate your wants and needs.

Know The Requirements For Purchasing Property
