Retiring to the Caribbean is a dream for many. With spectacular beaches, world-class golf courses, sensational spas and excellent fishing, for many retirees the Caribbean lifestyle can't be beaten. Besides the lifestyle, several islands also offer a range of tax advantages and real estate that offers excellent value. However, the advantages, buying processes and legal structures differ from island to island, so if you are considering buying property in the Caribbean to enjoy during your retirement, it's important to understand which location is best for your particular circumstances.

Working in close partnership with our trusted, expert partners on the ground throughout the Caribbean, we can offer you unrivalled local insight into the property market and the most desirable investment opportunities.
Located close to the USA and just a short flight away, The Bahamas and Turks & Caicos, for example, are popular choices for retirees from the USA and Canada. Both locations are welcoming to foreign investors and offer a range of tax advantages. Puerto Rico has also recently rolled out a range of tax benefits to attract retirees from the USA.
Islands such as Barbados, St Lucia and Montserrat, also offer a relaxed pace of life and, with strong historical and cultural connections to the UK, are ideal for British buyers. The Dominican Republic is popular with German buyers while St Maarten attracts French and Dutch retirees.
Several Central American countries including Belize have actually created programs specifically designed to attract retirees which have made them popular retirement destinations. Costa Rica, for example, offers retirees who can demonstrate an income of $2,500 per month for at least 5 years a pensionado visa. Panama has also developed a program specifically for retirees, offering a one-time exemption on the importation of household goods, as well as significant reductions on entertainment, travel, prescription medicines, dental and eye exams and the closing costs of home loans.
