The Top 3 Places to Live in the Caribbean (and 17 More on Other Coasts)

Where would you live if life let you settle down on a Caribbean beach? If you’re looking for affordable, International Living suggests Ambergris Caye, Belize; Roatan, Honduras; Isla Mujeres, Mexico; Las Terranas, Dominican Republic; and the Corn Island of Nicaragua. Looking beyond pure cost, however, I like Coastal Living’s new recommendations — Ambergris Caye (again!), Harbour Island in the Bahamas, and Playa del Carmen in Mexico. These three are among Coastal Living’s 20 Best Places to Live on the Coast (the other 17 are in the U.S.), which I helped write with editor Tracey Minkin — you can get the whole story here!
