"Before retiring in Treasure Beach, expats should know that the cost of living is generally lower than in many Western countries, but imported goods can be expensive. They should be aware that the official language is English, but Patois, a local dialect, is widely spoken. Expats should understand that healthcare facilities are available but may not be up to the standard they are used to in their home country. They should also know that the climate is tropical, with hot and humid weather throughout the year, and hurricane season runs from June to November. Expats should be aware that they will need a visa to stay long-term in Jamaica, and the process can be lengthy and complex. They should also know that crime can be a concern in some areas, although Treasure Beach is generally considered safe. Expats should understand that the pace of life in Jamaica is slower than in many Western countries, and they may need to adjust their expectations accordingly.

Finally, expats should know that the local cuisine is a mix of African, Indian, and European influences, and is typically spicy. They should also be aware that the local culture is vibrant and diverse, with a strong emphasis on music and dance," remarked another expat who made the move to Treasure Beach, Jamaica.
