What do I need to know before moving to All Saints?

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

"All Saints is the second largest town in Antigua and Barbuda, known for its vibrant culture and friendly locals. Before moving to All Saints, expats should know that the official language is English, but the local dialect can sometimes be difficult to understand. The cost of living in All Saints is relatively high, especially when it comes to housing and imported goods. The currency used in All Saints is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar, but US dollars are also widely accepted. The climate in All Saints is tropical, with a wet and dry season, and it is prone to hurricanes between June and November. Healthcare facilities in All Saints are adequate but not up to the standard of those in more developed countries, so it's advisable to have comprehensive health insurance. Public transportation in All Saints is limited, so having a car is almost a necessity. The crime rate in All Saints is relatively low, but petty crime like theft can occur, so it's important to take basic safety precautions. The education system in All Saints follows the British model, and there are both public and private schools available. Expats should also be aware that All Saints has a slower pace of life, which can be a big adjustment for those used to living in fast-paced cities. The local cuisine is a blend of West African, British and Indian influences, with seafood being a staple. Finally, it's important to respect local customs and traditions, as the people of All Saints are proud of their cultural heritage," said one expat who made the move to All Saints.
