I was wondering if anyone has experience with traveling to the Caribbean or buying properties in the Caribbean.
I am wanting to purchase a vacation home, and also rent it out when we are not there. I have been to the Cayman Islands plenty of times, and love it, but I want to find somewhere else - a hidden gem maybe... that has yet to explode as a tourist destination, but close enough to a major town that airlines can fly into as I need to make it somewhat affordable and accessible to people who would like to rent it out. Of course we all want the best of both worlds; that is a hidden gem on a secluded/private beach, but close enough to a town to find good eats, drinks, and shopping. Not to mention interaction with the locals is awesome.
I am open to any and all suggestions! However, I would like to avoid Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and Mexico, but that doesn’t mean if presented with a fantastic opportunity, I wouldn’t look into it.
Thank you everyone!
Hi Andrew why are you avoiding Dominican Republic? I know a quite few people who have been very profitable in this country.
Hi there!! I don’t want to avoid it, because any place in the Caribbean is amazing, but I’m looking for more of a vacation home than a rental. And in that case, I would prefer it not be as touristy as DR. Im sure there are places that are not, however. It’s hard to explain lol. I’m sure I can get talked into it, but I guess I was looking for a deeper island culture as opposed to one that is a bit Americanized. I hope that answers a portion of your question haha. But as I mentioned, I would never turn away from a good opportunity. Thank you for your reply Rhinesca!
