What do I need to know before retiring in Bohol Island?

Answer this Question

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

"Before retiring in Bohol Island, expats should know that the cost of living is relatively low compared to Western countries, but it is higher than in other parts of the Philippines. They should also be aware that the primary language spoken is Visayan, although English is widely understood and spoken. Expats should know that Bohol Island is known for its natural beauty, including the famous Chocolate Hills and white sand beaches, making it a popular tourist destination. It's also important to know that the healthcare system in Bohol is not as advanced as in larger cities like Manila, so those with serious health conditions may need to travel for treatment. Expats should be aware that the island is prone to natural disasters such as typhoons and earthquakes. They should also know that while the island is generally safe, they should still take precautions against petty crime. Before retiring in Bohol, expats should understand the visa requirements for long-term stay in the Philippines. They should also be aware that the island's infrastructure, including internet and road conditions, may not be as developed as they are used to. Finally, expats should know that the culture in Bohol is a mix of traditional Filipino customs and Spanish influences, and that the locals are known for their hospitality and friendliness," commented one expat who made the move to Bohol Island, Philippines.
