Hi, we are a couple of 50 years old each and we are tired of life in the Northeast USA. We both want a warm beach to retire to with a safe community and other expats from around the USA and world.
I am retired and currently get about $2700 monthly with more to come in the future from retirement investments. . Wife can't retire yet, but would be willing to go if there was some work to be found for some extra money on the island.
Of course we would do a long term rental before we bought property there and made the full commitment.
I've heard the cost of living per month is reasonable and AC is rated up there with some of the best places to retire to. We would probably want a 2 bedroom place so we would have an extra bedroom if our grown children came to visit. How much does it cost to live a modest life on the island? Where are the best places to live? Do you need a car, or would a golf cart be sufficient?
Beach or pool by day, maybe a couple of meals out a week, some entertainment on weekends?
Also for those who migrated from the US, what do you do in terms of moving there? Dual citizenship? (not sure how this works)
How is the healthcare? We are both relatively healthy but we are both 50 so healthcare is a concern.
any comments would be appreciated.
