When we asked expats and global nomads what they like and dislike about living in Nassau, they replied...

"Expats and digital nomads generally like living in Nassau, due to its beautiful beaches, warm climate, and friendly locals. They appreciate the laid-back island lifestyle, which offers a relaxing environment to work and live. The proximity to the United States is also a plus, making it easy to travel back and forth for business or personal reasons. Additionally, the Bahamas has a relatively low crime rate, making it a safe place to live. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may dislike the high cost of living in Nassau, as housing, groceries, and other expenses can be quite expensive. The limited availability of certain goods and services can also be frustrating, as well as the slow pace of life, which may not suit everyone. The island's infrastructure, such as internet connectivity, can be unreliable at times, which can be challenging for digital nomads who rely on a stable connection for work. Lastly, the hurricane season can be a concern for some, as it may cause disruptions to daily life and potential property damage," explained one expat living in Nassau, Bahamas.

"We moved from a different international location. Our interview process was extremely long so we were able to do a ton of research before making our decision to move. Boots on the ground is the best way to get a feel for any country and would suggest a visit prior to decision. Love the lifestyle here. willing to deal with all the negatives to live here. We have made great friends and remain active socially. Research the schools if you have kids. Some fit better than others. We are very happy with our decision for our kids (7/4). You must be flexible to live in any foreign land and the Bahamas is no different. Understanding the culture is paramount to a successful tenure. Unless, you have enough money to isolate yourself in certain areas. Happy to explain or speak on any issue to help someone out," said another in Nassau, Bahamas.
