What do I need to know before retiring in Treasure Beach?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Treasure Beach, they said...

"Before retiring in Treasure Beach, expats should know that the cost of living is generally lower than in many western countries, but it can vary depending on lifestyle. They should also be aware that healthcare facilities may not be as advanced or readily available as in their home country. Expats should understand that they will need a Visa or a residence permit to stay in Jamaica long-term. They should also be aware of the crime rate in Jamaica, which is higher than in some other countries, although Treasure Beach is considered relatively safe. It's important to know that the official language is English, but the local dialect, Patois, is widely spoken. Expats should also be prepared for the tropical climate, which includes a rainy season from May to November. They should also know that the local culture is laid-back and friendly, but it can take time to adjust to the slower pace of life. It's also worth noting that the local cuisine is a mix of different cultures, with a focus on fresh, local ingredients. Expats should also be aware that while the infrastructure in Treasure Beach is improving, it is not as developed as in some other retirement destinations. This means that things like internet access and reliable electricity may not always be guaranteed. Lastly, expats should know that owning property in Jamaica as a foreigner is possible, but it can be a complex process that requires local legal advice," said a member in Treasure Beach, Jamaica.
