What are the pros and cons of living in Antigua & Barbuda?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Antigua & Barbuda responded:

"Expats and digital nomads living in Antigua & Barbuda enjoy the warm climate and the laid-back atmosphere of the islands. The stunning beaches and the vibrant culture are also a major draw for many expats. Additionally, the cost of living is relatively low, making it an attractive destination for those looking to stretch their budget. On the downside, the infrastructure is not as developed as in other Caribbean countries, and the public transportation system is limited. Additionally, the language barrier can be a challenge for some expats, as English is not the primary language spoken in Antigua & Barbuda," said one expat in Antigua & Barbuda.
