The #1 Best-Budget
Caribbean Beach Haven

Top-Tier Caribbean Living…
At A Price You Can Actually Afford…

Offering You A Rich, Relaxing, And Truly Cultural Lifestyle…
Even On A Pensioner’s Budget

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

If you dream of white sands, warm turquoise waters, and year-round sunshine—but crossed the Caribbean off your list because you thought it was beyond your budget…

If you’re lured by a beach lifestyle but want more—from upscale restaurants, fine wines, and designer boutiques to jungle trails, rainforests, and historic colonial architecture…
Then I have very good news for you:

Now’s the time to revisit your white-sand dream…

Because we’ve found the Caribbean spot where you can afford to make it come true…

From A One-Bedroom Apartment In
Florida To A
Beach Home In The Caribbean…

DR Beach 720x474
A fulfilling and active life here in paradise can cost as little as US$1,290 a month…

Larry S. came to this Caribbean island from Ft. Lauderdale more than a decade ago. Back in Florida, he’d been renting an overpriced one-bedroom apartment that was a 10-minute drive from the beach.

And, whenever he battled through traffic to get to those jam-packed Atlantic shores, he wasn’t free to walk his dog or enjoy a beer. Instead, he’d find himself handing over US$40 for a mediocre lunch. Larry soon stopped putting himself through the hassle.

But in his new life on this Caribbean island, just a two-hour flight from the U.S. East Coast, Larry was able to buy a three-bedroom home just off the beach. In two minutes, he can be on the sand to play with his daughter and their dogs—and cool down with a beer for just 50¢.

For dinner, he can enjoy fresh lobster with fries, salad, and drinks for less than US$17… or a half-chicken dinner for less than US$6.

And the shores here are nowhere near as crowded as those in Florida. The area where Larry’s settled boasts miles of powder-sand beaches, many of which are deserted… offering true relaxation and escape.

A Rich And Active Retirement
From US$1,290 A Month 

The haven I’m talking about is the Dominican Republic.

The final landing place of Columbus and his crew on their grand discovery tour of the New World in 1492, today it’s a place where you can:

DR Houses
The Dominican Republic is a classic Caribbean paradise, but with a large European and American presence…
  • Live well on US$1,289.60 a month (enjoying the extras you’d struggle to afford back home)…
  • Own a three-bedroom home just off the beach from as little as US$259,000 (or a loft-style apartment for less than US$100,000)…
  • Enjoy year-round summer-like weather—most days here are sunny with clear blue skies. The average high is 87°F (30°C), with an average low of 73°F (23°C)…
  • Embrace the best of Caribbean living but also have First World amenities and entertainment nearby…
  • Enjoy an instant welcome in a country that embraces (and rewards) foreign investors and retirees…
  • Access high-quality and affordable medical care (and cheaper health insurance)…

The Dominican Republic isn’t entirely new to Americans.

Honeymooners, spring-breakers, golfers, and couples seeking five-star luxury have, for a decade, been vacationing in the all-inclusive resorts of Punta Cana…

Meanwhile, backpackers and adventurers trek through the jungle, race down white-water rapids, and let loose in the party towns of Sosua and Cabarete.

But that’s not the whole story of this island. Beyond the resorts and the jungles are eclectic fishing villages and towns offering a wonderful lifestyle to those wanting to stick around longer than a two-week holiday…

Plus, the Dominican Republic’s historic and architecturally exciting capital Santo Domingo is the oldest European city in the Americas

Property values in all these locations represent some of the best buys not only in the region but on a global scale…

And the interior of this not-so-little island nation offers rich, fertile, and seriously undervalued land prime for agricultural investment.

Now is your chance to get in early on the next wave…

Why The Dominican Republic’s
Time Has Come 

I’ve been watching the Dominican Republic for more than a decade, waiting for the time it could join the ranks of our top havens in the world…

At last, I believe this Caribbean nation’s time has come.

With a stable government—and an economy recovering from the aftermath of the pandemic, the D.R. will reach growth of 4.8% this year and a projected 4.5% in 2022, well above the growth projected for a large part of the Latin American countries.

Today, this island nation is ripe and ready for expats looking for a safe and affordable option in the Caribbean.

What makes the D.R. so attractive right now? I put it down to these three things:

1. Prices Represent The Best Value In The Caribbean

DR Beach
White sand beaches, warm turquoise waters, and year-round sunshine… it’s all possible on a small budget here…

From real estate to the general cost of living, it’s hard to believe you’re in the Caribbean. Prices across the board appear more Latin American. You could live well here on your monthly Social Security check alone.

A budget of US$1,290 would provide for a good lifestyle, without having to watch the pennies as you might back home. With a budget of US$2,000, you could afford more entertainment, extra household help, and really feel like royalty.

I’m always conservative in preparing budgets, by the way. Everybody has different needs and priorities. But, for what it’s worth, one reader wrote to say that he lives the good life in Santo Domingo (the nation’s historic capital city) for US$500 a month. This gentleman owns his own property, so he is spared the cost of a monthly rental fee.

What about the real estate? As I mentioned above, prices start below US$100,000 for apartments. There are plenty of villas near the beach around the US$270,000 mark. And even the biggest dream mansions are a fraction the usual multimillion-dollar price tag.

Rentals are well below other Caribbean destinations, too. Arriving in town, you’re probably going to need to rent for some time, at least. And, here, you won’t feel ripped off. Prices start at around US$600 for a one-bedroom apartment.

I should point out at this stage that the local real estate market is safer than ever. Years ago, property titles were in shambles. Deals were made without much regard to the law. Investing here was a pure gamble…

That situation has changed.

Now, thanks to a major government initiative to clean up the real estate sector, the market has been given a shake-up. Titles everywhere have been cleaned up and put in order. Rights of possession have been abolished. Clear procedures exist—and are being followed—for the purchase of real estate.

Unlike the early expats who settled here, you’re coming in at a low risk in a fully regulated market.

Of course, this opportunity isn’t going to remain a secret for long. Like anywhere in the world, the sooner you get in, the better placed you’ll be to take advantage of affordable real estate prices—prices that are still bargain-basement by Caribbean standards.

2. The Established Expat Community Means Amenities, Services, And A Rich, Cultured Lifestyle You Don’t Find Elsewhere In The Caribbean

DR Beach 400x266
Fun and activity abounds on this island, with a little something for everyone…

White-sand beaches, swaying palm trees, warm turquoise water, year-round sunshine—you’ll find them in abundance here in the Dominican Republic… and, of course, pretty much everywhere else in the Caribbean.

What sets the D.R. apart from other Caribbean islands and nations is its more sophisticated lifestyle—one that is strongly European. Santo Domingo, the oldest permanent settlement in the New World, boasts some impressive colonial architecture, along with modern shopping options, theaters, museums, and stadiums (béisbol is a national obsession).It’s the best of island living with the opportunity to take in an opera… go to the game… get in a round of golf… indulge in some retail therapy…

Driving along Avenida George Washington—part of El Malecón coastal highway on the edge of town—with its five-star hotels, casinos, and luxury condos, the feeling is more ritzy Santa Monica than Caribbean outpost. Meanwhile, El Conde in the Colonial Zone is the longest promenade in the Americas. You could lose an entire afternoon here weaving from café to boutique to colorful artisan stall.

You won’t have to worry about being the first expat in town. In our favorite town on the Samaná Peninsula (which I’ll introduce you to in a moment), you’ll be welcomed by locals and expats alike. And you’ll enjoy a wide range of products (from patisserie-baked pain au chocolat to German salami and from Italian wines to Swiss cheese) thanks to a diverse and multicultural local community.

In fact, if you love the thought of European life, but would rather be within a two-hour hop of the U.S. East Coast (and with better weather), then this could be the paradise you’ve been waiting for.

3. Developments In Infrastructure Make For Easy Living And Easy Access

Upgraded airports mean you can get to the Dominican Republic from U.S. East Coast in two hours.

New highways have cut drive times from the capital by half or more. No more getting lost down dirt tracks… or driving a painful six hours when you want to reach the opposite side of the island.

Best of all, this easier accessibility by both road and air has helped reduce day-to-day living costs.

On parts of the island, food and grocery items costs have fallen by as much as 30% over the last couple of years. I can’t think of anywhere in the world right now that can boast the same.

Current Samples From
The Local Property Market 

  • A two-bedroom condo with ocean views in one of the D.R.’s most exclusive areas. Price: US$180,000.
  • A three-bedroom villa with its own pool in a gated community close to the beach. Price: US$200,000.
  • A four-bedroom home, just 300 meters from the beach, set within a small gated community. Covering 332 square meters, all bedrooms are en-suite, and it has a private pool. Price: US$380,000.
  • A bioclimatic villa (a smart, eco-friendly build that can save you on utility expenses) in a small and private gated community.. Within a few minutes’ walk of the beach, the three-bedroom villa comes with its own pool and private garden. Price: US$349,000.

Untouched Beaches And
Coconut-Covered Mountains

“When foreign tourists head to the Dominican Republic, they go to one of three places: Punta Cana, Puerto Plata, or Santo Domingo—and that’s why you should head to the Samana Peninsula! Equidistant from Punta Cana, Puerto Plata and Santo Domingo, this North Coast peninsula boasts untouched beaches, soothing azure waters, and coconut-covered mountains that march down to the sea.”

‐‐International Business Times

Laid-Back Cosmopolitan
Beach Town Living

DR Samana Beach

The particular town I like in the Samaná peninsula was discovered in the 1970s by Europeans looking for an affordable Caribbean getaway. Today, it’s a vibrant international community with residents from all over the globe, including French, German, Polish, Swiss, Italian, Dutch, and British expats.

But this is no typical Caribbean beach town. Scratch the surface, and you’ll find one of the most interesting expat communities anywhere in the world.

Despite its thriving foreign population, costs here have remained local. A couple can enjoy the good life in this corner of the Dominican Republic for about US$1,290 a month.

Item Cost (US$) Notes
Rent $575 Fully furnished, mid-range, one-bedroom apartment
Public Transportation $32.60 Monthly bus ticket
Gas/Electricity/Water $72 Total monthly utility costs
Cable/Phone/Internet bundle $90 Subscription for Wi-Fi and TV
Entertainment $245 For fresh, whole foods. Imported, frozen, and processed foods will cost you more
TOTAL US$1,289.60 Monthly expenses for a couple

* US dollar figures are according to currency exchange rate as of April 2021

Sustainable Energy—
A Major National Plan

Also helping drive down the cost to the retiree in the Dominican Republic is the government’s effort to reform its energy sector from a heavy reliance (90%) on fossil fuels by capitalizing on its abundance of renewable energy sources. The government plans to derive 25% of its energy from renewable sources. To this end, generous tax incentives are offered to those who invest in sustainable energy developments and projects. This explains the number of eco-style villas you’ll see on the market—particularly around the Samaná Peninsula.


Not Ready To Retire?
The Red Carpet Awaits
Investors And Entrepreneurs, Too…

With its central location in the Americas, fast-developing infrastructure, and generous package of tax incentives, the Dominican Republic is one of the best places in the Caribbean region to do business.

The government welcomes foreign investors to its industrial free-zones. If you have a business to transplant or are looking to set up your own business in a tax-friendly, benefit-laden location, you owe it to yourself to investigate the opportunities here.

You don’t have to be in big business to take advantage of the Dominican Republic’s tax incentives.

The government is fully committed to tourism growth. It recognizes the potential in its coastlines, its jungles, and its historic capital city. Its big agenda is “sustainable tourism,” and it’s rolling out the red carpet to those willing to help boost its tourism efforts and accommodate visitors in town…

Start a tourism business here—a boutique hotel, a tour business, or dive shop may qualify—and, under Law 158-01, you’ll receive tax breaks for the next 10 years on income taxes, VAT, real estate transfers, property tax, import duties, and more

All while living in one of the Caribbean’s friendliest island nations.

By way of warning, I’ve seen these types of government incentives before. They don’t last. Fifteen-year tax breaks shrink to 10… then 5.

Likewise, those real estate prices will go up. Visitors are already starting to see beyond the usual hot-spots… and make their way to the lesser-known (lower-priced) towns and villages…

Now is the time to explore all the Dominican Republic has to offer.

I’m delighted to say you can now do that in the company of experts and expats who can help turn your DR dreams into reality—presenting:


Over three days, you’ll get to know D.R.’s best places to live—”thin sliced” to exact places that could be your personal slice of paradise.

Via high-definition video, you’ll see and hear from professionals, expats, and retirees who are already working, investing, or living in these places…

All from the comfort and convenience of your own home.

This is not a series of webinars—this is a professional event that happens to be online…

You’ll be able to interact with speakers as well as your fellow readers via chatrooms and forums, along with a virtual “raise your hand” option to ask your questions during discussions.

The event will give you a comprehensive, in-depth view of the Dominican Republic that outsiders and tourists simply don’t know.

This online event has two major objectives:

#1: To help you find out where in the Dominican Republic is best for you

#2: To give you the knowledge, support, and contacts necessary to make a move with confidence—that is, to create a plan…

Find the security that comes with knowing exactly how you can live—comfortably—on a budget that starts around US$750 a month.

  • Get to know each of your best options for living well in the Dominican Republic… from near-private islands to bustling cool-weather mountain villages…
  • Discover where you can tap into affordable health care, with excellent facilities and English-speaking doctors…
  • Find out how you can save thousands—tens of thousands—by living in certain off-the-radar places…
  • See examples of comfortable apartments you can rent for less than US$500 per month…
  • Learn where the best investment markets are… and what you can and can’t purchase as a foreigner…

Whatever your agenda, you’ll end the event prepared and confident, with all of the practical matters at your fingertips.

From residency to taxes, from banking to real estate, you’ll leave this conference ready to take action.

And, most importantly, you’ll benefit from the experience of those who have gone before you…

At this conference you’ll hear from seasoned expats who were once in your shoes.

Plus, if you want to see the cities and properties firsthand, you can join one of the optional (virtual) real estate tours and see the lay of the land for yourself.

In demand from readers for more than a decade, our high-definition-video, online-event system has finally allowed us to host our first-ever Live and Invest in the Dominican Republic Virtual Conference

This online event will allow you to get to know the Dominican Republic’s greatest lifestyle opportunities from the comfort of home.

“It was very informative and enjoyable… Great mix of speakers on living here as well as making investments.”

Introducing The
“St. Tropez Of The Caribbean”

Two hours northeast of Santo Domingo, across the highway to the Samaná Peninsula, is the little beach town of Las Terrenas. This is the area we’ve identified as offering the best expat lifestyle in the country, as well as plenty of attractive opportunities for the investor.

Las Terrenas, and its surrounding area, is a place that needs to be seen firsthand to be believed.

Recognizing the potential of the Samaná Peninsula, former President Leonel Fernández focused his attention on developing the area during his two terms in office. Thanks to his government, the highway from the capital, Santo Domingo, was completed while a massive marketing campaign launched the peninsula as the “St. Tropez of the Caribbean.”

Still, the lesser-known town of Las Terrenas has managed to keep its traditional feel. Today’s expats can appreciate this Caribbean beach town with its charming European influence… along with a first-class hospital, well-stocked supermarkets, and international schools that you don’t normally expect to find in a Caribbean outpost.

Las Terrenas:
Spectacular Beaches And Vistas

“Home to the country’s most spectacular beaches and lush, mountainous landscape, the Samana Peninsula is considered by both locals and visitors to be the most beautiful part of the Dominican Republic.”

‐‐Fodor’s Travel

“…It was a great conference, packed full of very relevant presentations. We have attended a substantial number of real estate investment courses and this was by far the best – content and organization.”

Las Terrenas—Standing Apart
From The Rest Of The Caribbean

DR Pueblo Pescadores
Authentic French, Italian, and Caribbean cuisine is ever-present in our top destination choice here, the expat beach town of Las Terrenas…

Doug and Helen, a couple from the U.K. traveled the Caribbean—from the Bahamas to St. Lucia to the Caymans and beyond—before this little town on the Dominican Republic’s Samaná Peninsula took them by surprise.

What set Las Terrenas apart from its neighbors, Doug says, was the immediate sense of the Caribbean as it used to be. Here the couple found the irresistible combination of pristine beaches and turquoise waters, a charming European-influenced town, impressive infrastructure and first-world amenities, and people who truly cared for each other and were genuinely welcoming of newcomers like themselves…

And, of course, there were the prices. Far from the multimillion-dollar price-tags of most Caribbean islands, this was the Caribbean of 50 years ago… at prices long since forgotten in places like Barbados, Antigua, and Bermuda.

Doug recognized an opportunity when he saw it. He put down cash for a plot of land on the first day he saw it and, over the next few years, built the couple’s dream home. Completed in 2007, their 450-square-meter home (with swimming pool), along with the original plot of land, cost just US$375,000.

Fourteen years on, Doug and Helen couldn’t be happier with their new home. (In 2013, they turned down an offer of US$850,000 for the property.)

  • Do you need to speak the language before you go? Or could you get by in English?
  • How to easily (and affordably) stay in touch with friends and family…
  • Can you bring your pets? What about quarantine?

“The seminar met my expectations and more. It was engaging and extremely informative. It opened me up to investment opportunities I never considered before. Thank you for such an informative and well run conference.”

Everyone Here Is Like
One Huge Family


DR Family
The friendly and welcoming locals are always happy to help neighbors, no matter where
they’re from…

Todd Schlosser first came to the Dominican Republic more than 11 years ago from Ohio…

His plan was to rent a house for a few weeks with a friend in resort-filled Puerto Plata. But after a couple of weeks of loving the active lifestyle, the cheap costs, and, more than anything, the Dominicans themselves, Todd decided to stay…

Like many who fall in love with the Dominican Republic on vacation, Todd knew the touristy area he visited was no place to build his idyllic new life. He asked around, took buses to visit new towns, and finally found Las Terrenas.

In his mid-40s and not ready for retirement, Todd wanted to build a business of his own. After a series of business misadventures, he opened a local mail forwarding franchise, CPS Las Terrenas. Mail forwarding is an invaluable service for expats and was sorely needed in the region before Todd pinpointed the need.

The business fits his current lifestyle perfectly. Todd is a people-person, he doesn’t like regular hours or to be in an office all day, and he has a young family he wants to be home to enjoy. His franchise allows him some freedom, loose hours, and to meet every new expat to come to Las Terrenas, making new friends as soon as they arrive.

Todd describes the country as a cliché of 1950s America…

“Everyone here is like one huge family. People here are hospitable and courteous, but not in the obligatory way that I think we Americans are. These people are far from rich, but no one goes hungry because everyone looks out for each other.

“When a Dominican offers you something it isn’t an empty offer. I have been offered plates of food in every house I’ve ever stepped into here—not just offered, but served! As soon as I sit down, there’s a plate in my hands, whether I want it or not.

“If I’m working outside, some stranger may see me and bring me a plate or a cold glass of something for no other reason than they want to help. They want to be nice, no matter who you are. It’s humbling.

“No one here has much, but whatever they have, they also want you to have. Charity is something that isn’t done by a church or an institution: It’s done every day by every single person living here. If there’s a community member in bad shape, everyone pitches in to help him out and shares responsibility. Rather than soup kitchens, we have neighbors.

“Blow a tire in Ohio and no one is stopping for you. You better have AAA or hope a cop spots you, otherwise you’re stuck. If you pop a tire here, within 30 seconds there’s a handful of people over to help who don’t expect anything for their trouble.”

“That is unusual in Latin America. In my experience, locals usually want a payoff from a foreigner in a tight spot. Not here.”

“It was my first seminar, and I was so impressed by the quality of how it was run as well as the carefully chosen topics. I was not sure what to expect and I am more than satisfied. I was able to talk to professionals and expats. I am going back with a treasure of information.”

Be Part Of This Small Group
 Of Like-Minded Adventurers

One thing we often pick up from attendees is a great sense of relief that they are no longer alone.

Right now, you’re thinking about making this big leap to a new life overseas… but you may feel like you’ve nowhere to turn… that friends and family aren’t so supportive of your ideas.

At our Live and Invest in the Dominican Republic Virtual Conference, you’ll be connected with like-minded folks all looking to start a new life overseas—many with the same hopes, dreams, and fears that you share.

Conference attendees often go on to become neighbors in their new homes. Once you realize you’re not alone—and that you’ll have so much support on your move—everything seems achievable.

“We were truly blessed to have the advantage of [your] experience, networking, business connections, and organization to offer a conference that offered the best and brightest minds from all over the world on a vast number of subjects. I was amazed at the depth of information. The speakers were generous in their advice. I will continue to use the connections established at this conference…
Thank you”

If All These Folks Could Do It,
You Can Do It Too!

Who else will you meet at our Live and Invest in the Dominican Republic Virtual Conference?

Others just like you who’ve already made the move:

Expats already living, investing, or doing business in this country.

In fact, these introductions alone are worth the price of admission.
They could be the most important benefit of the entire event.

These people have no agenda. They’ve agreed to participate in the event for no reason other than they’d like to help out fellow expats considering following in their footsteps. They receive nothing in return… have no ties to anyone (including me or Live and Invest Overseas)… and are hindered by no conflict of interest.

Our only request of them is that they tell it like it is. What you hear from these Dominican Republic expats won’t be all good. Maybe it won’t even be mostly good. But it will be the real deal.

No place is perfect, and we understand that a rose-colored view does you no favors…

There’s a reason these folks are in the Dominican Republic. They’re fans, but they’re not fools. They know the good, the bad, the beautiful, and the ugly of day-to-day life and of trying to do day-to-day business in this place. They’re enjoying the advantages… and they know how to manage to the downsides.

An important part of our agenda during this virtual event is to show you these downsides… so you can decide whether you can live with them, too.

To this end, our expat speakers will be there to tell you about life in the Dominican Republic as it really is…

This event truly is a one-of-a-kind experience…

And we guarantee it’ll save you time, hassle, and money down the road…

“More Information Than I Ever Expected”

“I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the conference. Very well organized and more information than I ever expected.”

‐‐Dave D., United States

I Promise You’ll Have No Regrets…

First of all, your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.

If you’re not happy with the event (or if you need to cancel), just let us know and I’ll send 100% of your money back to you.

But that’s not exactly what I mean with “no regrets”…

Part of our agenda at the Live and Invest in the Dominican Republic Virtual Conference is to give you the full story… the pros and the cons.

Did the readers I’ve helped find their spot abroad have their down days?

Of course they did…

One past attendee told me recently that she had the mother of all meltdowns after she and her husband packed up all their boxes and were getting ready to sell their beloved Illinois home. But, the next morning she picked herself up and followed through with her move…

“The best thing about our new life now is that we have no alarm clocks. We take our time in the morning and enjoy a leisurely breakfast. I’ll do some writing in the afternoon and exercise in the evening. There is no routine—and it’s wonderful.”

You’ll never know how wonderful your life could be unless you go and see

And what about those readers who decided the Dominican Republic was not for them after all?

I’ve heard from several, and not a single one regretted the experience. In fact, many of these folks told me the only regret was not doing it sooner, when they were younger and healthier.

This online event is the kick in the pants you need…

I urge you to give yourself the best start—sooner than later and in the best company—during my Live and Invest in the Dominican Republic Virtual Conference.

I hope to see you log on.
