Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic
Sunny Days Per Year: 245
Talk about a fantasy commute: Leave New York in the morning and be on the beach in Las Terrenas, on the Dominican Republic’s northeast coast, for lunch. If sun, sand, and aquamarine waters are your life’s top priorities, this little beach town tucked among the palms is a dream realized. The community, long a favorite with French and Italian expats, has an upmarket European feel. And with reasonable real estate prices and a strong rental market, your financial outlook is as sunny as the weather forecast.
