Is the cost of living in Spanish Town high?

We asked people how much they someone comfortably live on in Spanish Town, they wrote:

"The cost of living in Spanish Town, British Virgin Islands, is considered to be relatively high compared to other regions. This is largely due to the fact that it is a popular tourist destination and a renowned offshore financial center. Housing is one of the most significant expenses in Spanish Town. Rent for a one-bedroom apartment in the city center can be quite steep, while outside the city center, it is somewhat more affordable. Buying property can also be quite expensive, especially for beachfront properties or those with sea views. Groceries and dining out can also be costly in Spanish Town. Most food items are imported, which significantly increases their price. Dining out, especially in tourist areas, can be quite expensive, with meals at mid-range restaurants costing more than what one might expect to pay in other countries. Transportation costs are also a factor to consider. While public transportation is available, many residents and visitors choose to rent or buy cars for convenience, which can be quite expensive. Gas prices are also higher than the global average. Healthcare in Spanish Town is of a high standard, but it can be costly, especially for specialized treatments or procedures. It is highly recommended to have comprehensive health insurance. Despite the high cost of living, many people choose to live in Spanish Town for its beautiful beaches, pleasant climate, and friendly community. It's important to note that while the cost of living can be high, wages, particularly in sectors like finance and tourism, can also be higher than in many other regions," said one expat in Spanish Town.
