What you may not know is that people relocating to the Dominican Republic will join a growing residential population of upwards to 10 million people, with 1 million of them living in the capital city of Santo Domingo.

Situated on the island of Hispaniola, the Dominican Republic boasts of one of the largest economies in Latin America and the second-largest in the Caribbean, with substantial imports from Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, USA, Taiwan, and Germany.

The economic advantages of moving to the Dominican Republic from the US or Canada are overshadowed only by the incredible beauty of the nation’s coral reefs, spectacular beaches, tropical rainforests, and surreal and serene waterfalls dotted throughout the countryside.
