TONS of people debate every year about whether or not they should just buy a ticket and move to the Caribbean. The rigours of city life can be hard to bare and the Caribbean with its aquamarine waters, sunshine and laid back vibes can be very appealing. We did some highly scientific research as to why you should perhaps reconsider. Here are 8 reasons you should NOT move to the Caribbean:
1. The sun is always shining. So you’ll get so much Vitamin D that your skin will glow and radiate, alienating you from your friends back home.
2. You’ll be in the water so much that your fingers and toes will shrivel up like raisins on a daily basis.
3. You may have a hard time finding big screen tv’s or high speed internet, so you’ll be forced to spend quality time with your loved ones, free of distraction.
4. Starbucks and Keurig pods may be hard to come by, so you’ll have no choice but to purchase more duty free alcohol while trying to avoid the constant allure of access to fine Cuban cigars.
5. Because you’ll likely go to the beach everyday and wear bikinis and flip flops, you’ll probably not go shopping as much for clothes. Instead you’ll end up buying weird things like stand-up paddle boards, underwater camera’s and big floppy hats.
6. Because fresh lobster and seafood is so readily available in the islands, you might be tempted to eat it everyday.
7. If you live in the Caribbean you’ll just make your friends jealous, and they’ll want to visit you ALL the time.
8. There are sometimes serious storms in the Caribbean. Perhaps you’re better suited to the -40 winter temps in Canada, earthquake/drought ridden sunny-California or one of the midwestern states that sees over 1200 tornado’s annually?
