I've been offered a teaching position in Cap Cana with a monthly salary of $2000USD. It includes an apartment where I will pay about $60 in monthly fees plus electric and also includes local health/dental insurance and a few other perks including the usual December bonus. I am quite familiar with Puerto Plata as I've been volunteering there in the summers for several years and have friends there but I am much less familiar with the East Coast which I understand to be far more expensive.
Would anyone who lives in the area be willing to throw out some numbers about cost of living...groceries, occasional meals out...and if you think this is a reasonable income for this area to be able to save some money for the retirement account along the way.
It sounds like it would be best to have a car in this area as well?
