Off Grid Living in the Caribbean & Central America
Tired of the city? Hankering for a more sustainable way of life free of the intrusions of the stresses and strains of modern life? Looking to surround yourself by nature and for a more sustainable lifestyle that’s kinder on the environment? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then living off the grid may be the lifestyle you’re looking for.
Getting off the grid is becoming increasingly popular and the Caribbean and Central America is ideally suited to this lifestyle. There are homes for sale across the region equipped with tech from solar panels to water purification systems enabling you to live freely and independently.
Some are located close to towns and villages, so amenities and services are in easy reach when you want or need them. Others are more detached, so the only neighbors who will disturb you are visiting tropical birds and frogs.
From beachfront homes to hilltop estates, eco-friendly villas to private islands, there is a wide range of options to explore.
To get you started, here’s our pick of some of the best off the grid homes on the market right now in the Caribbean and Central America.
