When we asked people living abroad what life is like in their areas and how people spend their time, they said...

"It is a vast range of differences. The range is from very hardworking individuals that are employed by the banks, hotels etc which get very little time off to enjoy the island to the ultra rich with family money that spend most of their time living up the easy life and everything in between. We are considered a medium class family back home in Canada and so we are somewhere in the middle and spend most of our free time with our three children visiting and attending youth sports and clubs. Their is a vibrant night life scene but it can become fairly expensive quickly. The beach is a big draw in the warm months but locals do not swim in the winter months and so they are normally fairly empty at that time of the season," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to New Providence, Bahamas.

"Life in The Bahamas is a mix of stunning natural beauty, warm hospitality, and a laidback, relaxed atmosphere. Expats and digital nomads find it easy to settle in and make friends in the welcoming, diverse communities. The beaches offer a host of recreational activities, such as swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, and sailing, while the cafes and restaurants make it easy to find a bite or drinks. Shopping and nightlife are available in many of the local towns, with the bonus of low prices. The main international airport makes it easy to take off to other islands or countries for short trips. What’s more, there’s the bonus of dependable sunshine and the warmth of the Caribbean," commented one expat who made the move to Bahamas.
