hello

I am travelling to Dominican Republic and will be staying in Santiago for few 1-2 month, unfortunately I haven't been very successful on the search for an apartment or room.
The places I find on airbnb and craigslist are very expansive to my surprise.

are there any other local website for Dominican Republic I dont know about? or is it better to stay in a hotel for few days and search for a place once I arrive?

what is the normal rent for a 1 bedroom apartment people pay in Dominican Republic ?

Hola

Have you tried Homwaway, I stayed 6 weeks this past summer August into September and found something very reasonable 1500 for the entire 6 weeks in a gated community

never ever try to search for the apartments in Dominican Republic online.

just go there, search for the options in real and choose your apartment...

starting price for some decent apartment with "gastos" - commodities is around 8,000-10,000 DOP which means = around 200 USD/ month

Thank you, I found a very nice 5th floor walk up in the capital last year for 1500 USD for 6 weeks and it was very nice and is still my gall back but I would like to be out of the capital this year!

I felt it was ok, given the cable TV, electric Internet and security were included. I have looked at some apartments with no internet, cable TV, hot water or electricity and those things are important to me but if I can find them in a decent neighborhood for a better price it would be great!

Are you living in the DR and where?
