When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Martinique, they said...

"Try to stay close to the grocery store if you're with a family as stores close early and traffic can be extremely damaging to your day! Be prepared with your health records, and extra copies of everything," commented one expat who made the move to Scholcher, Martinique.

"Martinique is a French overseas department, so it is important for expats to be familiar with French culture and language. Expats should also be aware that the official currency is the Euro, and that the cost of living is higher than in many other Caribbean countries. Additionally, expats should research the climate and weather patterns of Martinique, as it is a tropical island with a wet season and a dry season. Finally, expats should be aware that Martinique is a popular tourist destination, so they should be prepared for the influx of tourists during the peak season," remarked another expat in Martinique.
