What do I need to know before moving to Liberta?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Liberta, they said:

"Expats moving to Liberta, Antigua and Barbuda should be aware that the official language is English, so communication should not be a major issue. The local currency is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar, but US dollars are also widely accepted. The cost of living can be high, especially for housing and imported goods. The climate is tropical maritime, with little seasonal temperature variation. It's important to prepare for hurricane season, which typically runs from June to November. Healthcare facilities in Antigua and Barbuda are limited, with more serious medical conditions often requiring evacuation to the United States. It's recommended to have comprehensive medical insurance that covers medical evacuation. The crime rate is relatively low, but petty crime like theft can occur, so it's important to take standard precautions to protect your belongings. Public transportation is available but not always reliable, so many expats choose to rent or buy a car. Driving is on the left-hand side of the road. The culture of Antigua and Barbuda is a blend of West African, British, and indigenous cultures. Cricket is the national sport and a popular pastime. Expats should also be aware of the local customs and etiquette. Antiguans and Barbudans are generally friendly and hospitable, but they also value respect and good manners. Finally, while Antigua and Barbuda is politically stable, it's always a good idea to stay informed about the local political situation," said one expat who made the move to Liberta.
