Chaguanas

Hello,

I will be visiting a few countries late summer to fall trying to find a new home. I am planning a trip to Trinidad and Tobago this July.

How safe would staying in Chaguanas on Nelson street be?

I wish this did not matter- but it does in most cultures. I am middle age to older female.

In addition, what other countries might you recommend (cost of living, safety, and weather are primary issues)?

Thanks for your assistance with this.

You don't ask for much do you?

Nelson Street is part of an old residential development named Lange Park which is relatively safe and is within walking distance to Price Plaza.

Other countries/cities I would recommend are Rio Negro or Medellin Colombia, Miraflores or San Borja Lima Peru, and Cuenca Ecuador.

Generally speaking the cost of living is much cheaper in Latin American Countries.

Fruits meats vegetables and cooked Food is usually much cheaper and plentiful. Apartments are also very cheap depending on location. Utilities may be more expensive.

It is not unusual to spend 20 dollars per day in the above Latin American countries to cover breakfast lunch and dinner (5+7+8) and most hostals (motels) cost around $ 20-40 per day as well.

Generally you can live decently on a monthly income of around $2500.00

Good luck

Thank you so much!! The power and kindness of internet never ceases to amaze me.
My favorite part of the bible is seek, and ye shall find. The proceeding line also influenced me-Ask, and ye shall receive.
When one native of T&T heard of where I booked, I was assured I would end up a crime victim. The statistics were also grime looking. You provided very valuable information.
The adventure will continue as planned.
