What do I need to know before moving to Sauteurs?

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

"Expats moving to Sauteurs should be aware that the official language is English, but many locals also speak Grenadian Creole. The cost of living is relatively low compared to many Western countries, but imported goods can be expensive. The local currency is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar, which is pegged to the US dollar. Sauteurs is a small town, so it may not offer all the amenities of a larger city. However, it is known for its friendly community and beautiful natural surroundings. The climate is tropical, with a wet and a dry season, and it can be quite hot and humid. Healthcare facilities in Sauteurs are basic, so expats with serious medical conditions may need to travel to the capital, St. George's, for treatment. It's also recommended to have comprehensive health insurance that covers medical evacuation. The cuisine in Sauteurs is a mix of African, Indian, and European influences, with local specialties including oil down (a one-pot dish), fried jackfish, and roti. Fresh fruits and vegetables are plentiful and cheap at local markets. Public transportation in Sauteurs is limited to minibuses and taxis, and schedules can be unpredictable. Many expats choose to rent or buy a car for convenience. Driving is on the left side of the road, and an international driving permit is required. Sauteurs is generally safe, but like anywhere, it's important to take common-sense precautions against crime. The legal system is based on English common law, and the local police force is generally responsive and helpful. Internet and mobile phone coverage in Sauteurs is generally good, but power outages can be common, especially during the rainy season. It's a good idea to have a backup plan for staying connected. Finally, expats should be aware that Grenada is located in a hurricane-prone region. It's important to have a plan in place for hurricane season, which typically runs from June to November," wrote a member in Sauteurs.
