Barbados
White sand beaches, palm trees and a visa that allows remote workers to live on this eastern Caribbean island for up to one year...welcome to Barbados! With a colonial capital (Bridgetown) and sleepy towns scattered all around the coast and interior, there are plenty of lifestyle options depending on your needs. While it's relatively expensive to live here, and the community of remote workers is only in its infancy, it's still a chance to live in paradise. If you enjoy exploring tropical nature, water sports, cultural events and festivals, good food and an ultra-relaxed lifestyle, with warm weather all year round, Barbados is worth considering.
