Where should I setup a bank account in Marigot Bay?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Marigot Bay what banks they use and there advice about banking. They advised...

"Expats considering retirement in Marigot Bay should be aware of several key factors. Firstly, the cost of living can be high, particularly for imported goods, due to the island's remote location. Healthcare facilities are limited and may not offer the same standard of care as in more developed countries, so it's advisable to have a comprehensive health insurance plan. The official language is English, but many locals also speak a French-based Creole, so learning some basic phrases could be beneficial. The climate is tropical, with a wet season from June to November, which can bring hurricanes. The island's economy is heavily reliant on tourism, which can make it crowded during peak seasons. Property prices can be high, especially in desirable areas like Marigot Bay. While Saint Lucia is generally safe, crime can be an issue, particularly petty theft, so it's important to take standard precautions. The immigration process can be complex and time-consuming, with a requirement to prove financial self-sufficiency. Finally, while the natural beauty and relaxed lifestyle of Marigot Bay can be very appealing, it's important to visit first to ensure it suits your retirement needs and expectations," said a member in Marigot Bay, Saint Lucia.
