I posted this on another thread but thought it might be good information for those considering a move any time soon.
To all those moving here or considering it:
Getting things done before our 2 Cat 5 Hurricanes a week apart in September, took awhile.
It now takes much longer and you may have to go a few different places.
If you're lucky, you'll find what you need. But...you might not.
Prices have definitely gone up whether at grocery stores or other places!
Internet services are still not available in many areas.
ATT cell phone internet service sorta comes and goes, depending on location and time of day.
And they're the best we've got, right now.
VIYA, the local phone company is not providing phone nor internet to new customers as yet. Many of their old customers have yet to have service restored.
Many businesses are still without internet, credit card and phone capability.
WAPA our electricity provider, is having difficulty generating reliable power so outages are numerous.
There are still dangling power lines and lots of overflowing garbage bins and roadside debris.
There are mega potholes and few streetlights. Some roads are downright dangerous.
Individual healthcare insurance is not available and our hospitals are a mess.
If you're not an extremely calm and patient person, our islands, at this point in time, may not be the right move.
BTW - Hurricane Seaon begins again in June. 3 months from now.
This is a Reality Check.
