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

"The cost of living in Jamaica varies depending on the location, goods and services purchased, and other factors. Generally, the cost of rent and utilities is lower than in other parts of the world, while food, healthcare, and other goods are similarly priced. This can be a great advantage to those looking to get more out of their money. Additionally, the cost of a night out - such as going to a restaurant or bar - is usually quite affordable. Jamaica is also home to a wide variety of different leisure activities, ranging from the beach to night clubs, which make it easy to find entertainment to fit any budget," remarked another expat in Jamaica.
