Relocating to Trinidad & Tobago

Jump to last reply

My DD, her husband and their 2 yr old daughter are thinking of moving due to job offer.

I am looking for some insights [to pass along to them] as to what life would be like for them should they make this move.

Things of concern:
safety
health care
schools [preschool]
cost of living
food
expat population

I lived in Martinique for a 6 month stint, as well as Mauritius, so I am familiar with life on an island, but that was a long time ago -- but I was a single person, with no family.

Neither of them has ever been to Caribbean island, so they have no idea of what it is like to live anywhere but the US with all of its taken for granted comforts of home.

Any insights that I can pass along to them would be most appreciated, even if your experience was on a different island.

Thanks~
