Hi,

I arrived a week ago today. Still setting myself up so hoping that my cost come down once I'm out of hotels and living a normal life.

I'm spending about 6 -7k a day on food (as I said still not set up so forced to eat out), and have had no transport or accommodation costs yet as work is still paying.

I'm sure you may be able to survive, but from what I've seen I couldn't live on that little.

If you look back about 5 threads Rick provided a huge amount of detail that you will find helpful.

Jamaica is a very unusual example. It is a developing nation, yet the cost of living is very high. I haven't lived there since the early 2000's but if anything,it has gotten more expensive, as the USD has increased in value. The current exchange is now about 125JMD to the US. According to your statement, an income level of $140,000JMD per month is by no means an extravagant amount of money, especially someone from a G20 country. You will live on that yes, but very modestly. That is my opinion.
