We asked people how much they someone comfortably live on in Bahamas, they wrote...

"This is of course a loaded question as it depends on your personal level of comfort. As mentioned above there are billionaires living here and so they live a much higher living standard then your average retired couple. We also have teacher friends that are living here on their salaries in 1/12 apartments but living well and going out with friends so if you have enough income to get a permit to reside you can find a way to live here within that means," said another expat in New Providence, Bahamas.

"The cost of living in the Bahamas can vary depending on where you choose to live. Generally, prices for food and utilities are on the higher side but other expenses, such as accommodation and transportation, are relatively affordable. Rent is typically high in larger cities and areas popular with tourists, but other areas are more affordable. In general, living in the Bahamas is more expensive than living in the US, but the country offers a unique lifestyle and a beautiful natural environment to enjoy," wrote a member who made the move to Bahamas.
