I just returned from the DR myself and spent a lot of quality time with Barry and the DR Tour family, and I can certainly say without any hesitation that all facets of my experience while there completely exceeded my expectations!
Personally, with over 20 years of of following trends, I have appreciated the solutions-oriented approach that Barry and DR Escapes provides. So, making the recent trip to the DR to explore it as part of a complete plan made perfect sense to me. I am thankful to my brother that he told me about DR Escapes not long ago upon seeing one of Barry’s articles on SGT.
What I discovered while on my DR Escapes tour was as close to a complete solution as I could have ever imagined. In fact, while there for 4 days and since my return, I’ve personally already begun taking very simple, relatively-easy steps to make the DR my 3rd leg of the stool for myself and my family. I’m already now sleeping better at night!
Having a trusted network of friends and associates, especially during difficult times, is in my opinion perhaps the greatest and most important element that Barry and DR Escapes provides. It’s an already-established, very strong and impressive network to say the least. This network includes other folks whom have already made this transition to the DR from other lands, local professionals such as attorneys, town officials, tradesmen, and a whole host of other great connections.
Barry introduced me to literally dozens of these individuals while I was on the tour, so it became very evident to me of the tremendous value already established over the 16 years that Barry has been in the country, and specifically the Cabrera region of the north coast.
This network which Barry has forged has eliminated any concerns I initially had when contemplating the DR as being part of my own plan. Let’s face it, when considering a “foreign land”, it can be a rather daunting exercise.
I must say though that the most gratifying, fulfilling aspect of my “discovery” was the local people, and the love and genuine kindness I experienced from them. This very important aspect made everything else flow in a beautiful way. It just made everything feel right.
I could go on and on about all the other important elements, such as the beautiful diverse countryside, abundant natural food and water supply, modern communications network, lovely climate, etc, etc, but I’ll leave at least some of it for any of you that are traveling a similar path, and are looking for your own 3rd leg to the stool.
And, by the way, I think you’ll be more than pleasantly surprised at the abundance of options available in the DR for those whom need to continue generating income, as many of us are not yet able to retire. For instance, being in the real estate industry for over 25 years, I was honestly surprised and amazed to discover, with Barry’s assistance, the ripe opportunities for real estate purchase, including from an investment angle.
In closing, and given the current global landscape, I would encourage anyone to move quickly and decisively in seeking out your own plan. If it includes the DR, then I’d say there’s a very good chance we’ll be seeing one another soon!
