These comments are no where near the thruth, there are not that many jobs in DR, the people are under paid and 0ver worked. It's an expensive place to live if you do not have help from family out side the country or have a really good job or business. Most people make the minimum wage rounds off at around 150.00 dollars a month. While real estate can be cheap, it's cheap for foreigners that can exchange dollars or Euros. Many people retire there with their pensions and can live rather well, but if you have a family and are making 8000 pesos a month you are going without. You must buy drinking water. Most don't have running water or 24 hour electricity so please let's tell the thruth about what goes on in the DR. Crime is at about 75%
