Retire to the Bahamas and you’ll find that the locals are friendly to newcomers

When you retire to the Bahamas you’ll find that the locals are friendly to newcomers, there’s no foreign language to cope with, crime is relatively low, and the islands are positioned just off the Florida coast.

The parity between Bahamian dollars and U.S. dollars means that any business will accept either Bahamian or U.S. currency.

Both medical and dental treatment generally costs less in the Bahamas than it does in the U.S., especially at the government-owned Princess Margaret Hospital in Nassau and the Rand Hospital in Freeport.

The Bahamas has no income tax, capital gains tax, purchase, or sales tax, VAT or capital transfer tax. This applies to individuals, and also to all resident corporations, partnerships and trusts.

If you retire to the Bahamas, your life will be an escape from the daily grind of life and living there can be lots of fun.

Although parts of New Providence and Grand Bahama have been built up, many of the Out Islands still retain an unspoiled charm that’s particularly valued by those who love nature, sports, and a delightful climate.
