Where should I setup a bank account in Choiseul?

Answer this Question

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

"Expats considering retirement in Choiseul should be aware of several key factors. Firstly, the cost of living in Saint Lucia is relatively high compared to other Caribbean islands, so it's important to have a solid financial plan. The official language is English, but many locals also speak a French-based Creole, so learning some basic phrases could be beneficial. Healthcare facilities in Saint Lucia are adequate, but serious medical conditions may require evacuation to a country with more advanced medical facilities. Therefore, comprehensive health insurance is recommended. The climate in Choiseul, like the rest of Saint Lucia, is tropical, with a wet season from June to November. Expats should be prepared for high humidity and occasional hurricanes. The local culture is a blend of African, French, and English influences, and locals are generally friendly and welcoming. However, it's important to respect local customs and traditions. Crime rates in Saint Lucia are higher than in some other Caribbean countries, so expats should take precautions to ensure their personal safety and secure their property. Finally, while Saint Lucia offers a range of recreational activities, from hiking and bird-watching to snorkeling and sailing, the pace of life is slower than in many Western countries. Expats should be prepared for a more relaxed lifestyle," remarked another expat who made the move to Choiseul, Saint Lucia.
