When we asked people living abroad what life is like in their areas and how people spend their time, they said...

"Expat life in Jamaica is full of adventure, with numerous opportunities to experience the vibrant local culture, beautiful scenery, friendly people, and fascinating history. For digital nomads, the dream of living and working abroad in a warm and sunny location is made a reality, as Jamaica offers fast and reliable internet access, as well as cultural immersion. There are also opportunities to mix work and leisure, with a range of activities to be enjoyed, from snorkelling and diving to trekking and exploring rainforests. Expats and digital nomads in Jamaica can expect a traditional Caribbean experience where the famously laid-back attitude prevails and wonderful opportunities await to relax, grow, and make new friends," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Jamaica.

"I am not directly in Spanish Town. I am in a beautiful community called 'Green Acres'. There seems to be a number of retired citizens, who enjoy playing dominoes and socializing," commented one expat who made the move to Spanish Town, Jamaica.
