Small and laid back. No traffic! Lots of stunning, untouched nature. Friendly. Cost of living is fairly high for imported items and interior travel (because it is so remote), but one can definitely save money here. Great weather year-round! Always between 70 and 90F. Housing is good and comfortable. Interesting old colonial architecture. Fresh fruit year round. - Feb 2010
