Your Perfect Villa

is waiting for you at casa linda

When picturing retirement, individuals often prepare themselves to slow down and enter a more mellow phase of their lives. While some retirees prefer a steady retirement lifestyle as they spend their days sitting on the porch, babysitting the grandkids and looking after their gardens, others may not.

Retirement doesn’t have to mean giving up or pulling the brakes on having fun; on the contrary, retirement could be an adventurous stage of your life where you have the opportunity to experience all new things! You can wake up every morning at the sound of the waves crashing into the sand and the rays of the sun that brighten up your room all year round! If you’re looking for adventure and new experiences, then retiring in the Dominican Republic is the place for you. Read on to learn more about the beauty of the DR and the adventures that await! 

Year-Round Tropical Climate

How does retirement sound like when you spend your days in sunny weather, sandy beaches and crystal clear water all year round? Ex-pats across North America choose to retire in the Dominican Republic over retiring anywhere back home as the DR has beautiful weather all year round. The tropical Caribbean island attracts many retirees with its beautiful coastline and its fabulous weather. Why retire in the cold when you can enjoy the summer breeze all year round? 

Let The Adventures Begin

From live music and wine tasting to weekly Zumba and Sunrise Yoga, your retirement days will never be dull in the Dominican Republic. Everywhere you go, full of adventure and fun, whether you’re looking for mountain climbing, camping in the desert or trail walking in the rainforest. Over the past years, the DR has increased the number of amenities dramatically to ensure that ex-pats and retirees have plenty of activities to enjoy throughout their stay! You can relax on the beach, enjoy fine dining, take dance lessons or even go on a hike! When retiring in the Dominican Republic, the adventure never ends! 

Find Your Community

You might be thinking, “All the above sounds great! But can I fit into the community?” With Casa Linda, we bring the community to you. For decades, we have helped retirees across North America successfully find a place they call home in the Dominican Republic. Making the move might seem scary, especially if you’re travelling to a country where you don’t even speak the language! That’s far from the truth when retiring in the Dominican Republic with Casa Linda. English is the second most spoken language in the DR, and since many tourists and ex-pats visit the island throughout the year, the majority of Dominicans speak English fluently. Whether you’re grocery shopping, dining out or looking to make new friends, language will not be a barrier. 

At Casa Linda, we understand that life can sometimes be lonely if you can’t share it with the ones you love, which is why we created a diverse community that welcomes retirees in the Dominican Republic. Our community has been home to many Americans, Canadians and Europeans for more than 40 years! The ex-pat community gives you a chance to meet new people, find familiar faces and enjoy your retirement without feeling far away from home.
