My wife and I are considering a move to the Caribbean, particularly USVI (no work permits or immigration to deal with), at some point in the future. However, I'm trying to be positive, yet realistic about this and doing lots of research. My wife may be retired by then (depending when we would do this) but I would certainly be working. I'll have a PhD in school psychology, but I'm trying to learn more about education and psychological services and needs in the region. Anyone have any tips, experiences or advice? Fortunately, my qualifications would allow me to work in any school setting, public or private, k-12 and even University. I appreciate the time and advice, everyone. Thank you.
PS: Seems like any message board about living in or moving to the Caribbean is filled with negative comments. I don't know how much I should believe these things or not... Why would anyone continue to live there? High crime, low wages, isolation, "island time"... I mean, is it REALLY that bad in the Caribbean?
