What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

I would say definitely start early. Trinidad is a laid back place and they are not in a rush to get anything done here. Check out place well in advance and send emails to the schools every week for your kids.

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

We live in a 3 bedroom, 2 and 1/2 bathroom. We have 2 kids so we needed a little bigger place. This is typical.

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

My wife is a lecturer at UWI, so they set up all the arrangements before we arrived.

Are your housing costs higher or lower than they were in your home country? What is the average cost of housing there?

The cost of houses here are a little more expensive. We were renting in the states and the our rent was $1200 US.. The place we stay in is $7500 TT or about $1250 US.
