  1. I was just about to ask the same question,
    US or EC $. No way you are living on EC $. So happy to hear you find the cost of living so affordable on our beautiful island, most locals aren’t so lucky.

  2. These people are rich, filthy rich by Antigua standards. Almost noobody here makes that kind of money. They are elitists. Even in the US the kind of dollars they are talking about is way beyond the money earned by the average guy. These people are living high on the hog, no matter how anyone tries to justify it. Chuptz

    • You don’t get the point? Is telling locals, that a family coming to live here, they support a lot the internal market, because they spend the money on the Island. A house rent, food, services, immigrantion fees (quite high), schools, insurance, is a lt of way people spend the money here and that help the country, and their job is mostly online, isn’t local company, and AUA teachers is part of educational system that bring money a lot a lot o Antigua..But locals most times feel bad having those people around.

  3. I make $20,666.66/month USD working via distance in Antigua. Thanks for the tax-free lifestyle, Digital Nomad Visa! And you know what, it’s still too expensive here. Plus, the internet sucks! Like really, sucks. We will be relocating back to the States in February. I honestly don’t know how anyone affords to live here; especially locals. Good luck, y’all!
