The Place

It’s Booming on the North Coast

Ever since Columbus came ashore in 1493, the Dominican Republic has been a place where worlds mix.

It’s this melange of African, European, North American, and Latin cultures that makes the DR so appealing to foreigners.

Over 5 million people visited the island in 2012, making it the number 1 tourist destination in the entire Caribbean.

They come for the vibrant culture and beautiful climate. They stay for the low cost of living and efficient real estate market.

And THE place to be on this not-so-little island?

The place to be is fast becoming the DR’s North Coast.
