    The Samaná Peninsula, which jets out into the Atlantic Ocean from the northeastern Dominican Republic, draws visitors and investors with its pristine beaches, whale-watching and nightlife. It also has pretty great real estate prices.

    While there isn't too much potential for a high rental yield, homebuyers can typically find a one-bedroom apartment for less than $100,000 that is likely to grow in value. High-end developments with lots of amenities will run you a bit more, usually just over $200,000.
