Re: Where do you want to retire in Caribbean or Central or South America?
We have now on the east end, a town water and electricity hook up this year for the first time. We did the water for our pigs, before that it was all cistern, which we still have.They now have cell towers on the hill, and you can get a modem for the wi fi. My neighbors have a sat dish for t.v. There is a road connecting Savanah Bight to Mangrove Bight, but neither town has anything to drive to really. They make thier own cement blocks in each village, but lumber needs to be imported from the Main land. Electricity is expensive, so we keep it to a few lights a ceiling fan and a fridge. No a.c. But on the east end we have the trades to keep us cool. It's simple living, we like it. Every couple of day's we go to the main Cay, or Banaca Town for supplies, but Savanah bight which is a mile walk down a 4 wheel only trail has sundries and stuff. There is a crest trail for hiking the mountain but no jeep trail yet. It's all done by boat. Some guy's use Mules.
