I am interested in hearing from ex pats who live in PC as I am comparing serveral places I would like to retire part time to in approx 3 years and PC's real estate prices make it look very inviting.
I am looking for basic living costs info like food (and availability or North American food products should I want them) and Cable TV, electricity and other basic necessities of life to compare with the other places I am considering.
I would also like to hear what some might guess it would cost monthly to live the following lifestyle (rent or mortgage excluded as I have that info already)...
My wife and I's lifestyle there would probably include dinner out 3 or 4 times a week at moderately priced local seafood restuarants followed by a few cocktails and maybe 2 or 3 times hitting up some nightlife as well. I would also most likely spend 2 or 3 afternoons in a beach bar drinking beer "with the boys" or some other such activity and the remainder of our food and drinks would be prepared and consumed at home so if ayone else's current lifestyle resembles this or you have a good estimation please feel free to give your guess as I am open to as many answers as possible. This is a very basic idea of what we would spend money on and things like golf or other activities would be in addition to this.
As for us we have never been to PC but plan on visiting in a year or so but have been all over the world and am very familiar with living in a tropical 3rd world country so no surprises for us there...
Thanks in advance for all your input.
