Golden Treasures Real Estate has announced a new fractional ownership project in Sosua on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic. The 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath villas are custom designed specifically for fractional ownership. All villas will have ocean views and are a 5-minute drive to the beach. One-sixth shares (3 high-season weeks and 5 low-season weeks) are available starting at $69,870 (USD). View their website for more information.

September 2018 update:

Condo hotels are also a popular option in the Dominican Republic.  With a low up-front cost and rental income, condo hotels are an attractive option.  Vacation ownership in a condo enables you to visit longer than a fractional property.
