Cost of Living

 

We find the cost of living less than where we lived in the U.S.

 

Transportation

 

We purchased a new Ford Ranger (4×4 pickup) from the local Ford dealer and we love it. The roads are windy, but are well maintained.

 

Food

 

Retire in GuadeloupeFresh fish, fruit and vegetable markets are in close proximity and provide our daily staples. We have small and large grocery stores at our disposal for the rest of what we need.

 

Safety/Security

 

Other than in certain areas of the largest city (Point-a-Pitre), Guadeloupe is reportedly one of the safest islands in the Caribbean. People still leave their homes unlocked and their windows open.

 

Quality of Life

 

Retire in GuadeloupeWe read that the French islands in the Caribbean have the highest quality of life of all the islands in the Caribbean and we believe it. The streets are great, the food is outstanding and the people are kind, warm and welcoming.

 

Weather

 

Well, it’s the tropics. Warmest in May and June, windier during “hurricane” season in September and October, and cooler in the high season (November through April).

 

Things to Do

 

Retire in GuadeloupeGuadeloupe offers a wide range of activities from boating, scuba diving, snorkeling, beaches, restaurants, hiking around the volcano, island hopping, shopping, and relaxing.

 

People

 

The people of Guadeloupe are warm and friendly. We were welcomed with open arms and have formed lasting friendships.

 

Guadeloupe has exceeded all of our expectations and we hope more travelers consider the island for vacation or retirement.

    thanks for the nice blog. I speak French and I’m single and have thought of retiring in the Caribbean on a French Island I have been considering this island and also Martinique but I am somewhat worried of feeling like the only American or Westerner around amongst natives . how does that play out?
