So you’ve spent a few vacations in the Dominican Republic and perhaps you’ve fantasised about relocating to this paradise island? Well, here’s the perfect book to help you decide if living in the DR is really for you or not.
We believe that this book should be made compulsory reading for anyone contemplating relocating to the Dominican Republic.
We’ve found it to be the most comprehensive and up-to-date source of information available on the subject. It covers pretty much everything you’ll need to know from choosing your location to dying in the Dominican Republic!
And it’s crammed with useful contact info.
We especially liked the last chapter
“What The…?” – a collection of true anecdotes, as experienced by the authors and their friends, that humorously illustrates the idiosyncrasies of life here in the Dominican Republic.
Expat FAQ: Moving to and Living in the Dominican Republic makes for a great beach read too.
