I love the water and weather the most. I also enjoyed being able to spend more time with family and friends. I did not particularly like the cost of housing and groceries. One thing to expect is that things take longer. It takes a while to get utilities hooked up, drivers license changed over, car registered… I don’t like that there is a partial lack of community things to do. There is a lack of variety in things to buy, so often times you have to pay to bring it down for the states. I recommend you come down for a couple of weeks before deciding to live here. Even though you can not truly experience what it is like to live here until you actually do live here, you do get a better idea about the islands then just reading or hearing about them.
