What do I need to know before moving to Cap Estate?

Answer this Question

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

"Cap Estate is located in the northernmost part of Saint Lucia, known for its luxury villas and stunning views. Before moving, expats should know that the official language is English, but many locals also speak a French-based Creole. The local currency is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar, although US dollars are widely accepted. The cost of living in Cap Estate is relatively high compared to other parts of Saint Lucia due to its upscale nature. Expats should be prepared for this and budget accordingly. The real estate market in Cap Estate is robust, with a range of properties available from luxury villas to more modest homes. The climate in Cap Estate is tropical, with warm temperatures year-round. However, there is a rainy season from June to November, which can bring hurricanes. Expats should be prepared for this and consider purchasing property insurance that covers hurricane damage. Healthcare in Saint Lucia is of a good standard, but serious medical conditions may require evacuation to a larger island or the US. Therefore, comprehensive health insurance is recommended. Cap Estate is a safe area, but like anywhere, crime can occur. Expats should take standard precautions to protect their homes and belongings. The island's culture is a blend of African, French, and English influences. Expats should respect local customs and traditions. Driving is on the left side of the road in Saint Lucia, and the roads can be narrow and winding. Expats planning to drive should familiarize themselves with local driving laws and conditions. Finally, while Cap Estate is a beautiful and tranquil place to live, it can be somewhat isolated. Expats should be prepared for a slower pace of life and limited nightlife and entertainment options," explained one expat living in Cap Estate, Saint Lucia.
