I suppose all these fears may be rational to someone that has never made a move away from the homeland. But if you can get by those fears, I suspect you will find the same “renewal” that so many other expats have experienced.
I can tell you from personal experience of living in six countries and traveling on extended underwater photo assignments to dozens of other countries… making an offshore move can breath life and energy into your family relationships and give you a new purpose that rapidly wipes away any fears you may have.
Listen to other expats on our many video interviews on the DR Escapes website. I suspect many of these expats shared some of these same fears before they bit the bullet and made the move. As a group, the expats coming to Cabrera have settled in comfortably in our little village lifestyle and those fears have dissolved away. In fact, most will tell you that they actually feel safer and more secure here than where they came from. There are probably some reasons expats settle into Cabrera so easily. First, the people are very receptive and friendly to expats. Second, Cabrera is a little oceanfront village, unspoiled by throngs of tourists. And third, most of these expats came with an existing family to make their move smooth. That family is the DR Escapes family. A growing group of expats and locals families that look out for each other and actively work to make your move a positive experience.
If you have been on one of our free DYD tours of the north coast, then you probably met Willy Acosta, my partner here in Cabrera. In this interview of Willy, you will discover one of the primary reasons our expat families have adapted so smoothly to life in this little village. I can assure you that Willy’s comments come straight from his heart and reflect the commitment of the rest of the DR Escapes family to make your move successful.
