I am an American currently living in the PNW. I've lived all over the country and have yet to find an area to my liking. Recently I've been thinking about Puerto Rico. A beautiful tropical island within the Caribbean that I could literally just move to. It's cheap and it's close enough to the rest of Latin America that I could easily visit other countries that I'd like to travel to. Also I do speak Spanish, not exactly fluent but enough to be conversational. I'm sure that immersing myself in the language would get me to where I need to be. Anyway, is this a good idea? I've heard crime is bad there but I've also heard that crime is actually falling and that it's just the media hyping it up. I've lived in American ghettos growing up and even as an adult, it can't be much worse. I make 60k per year and I work remotely so the max I'd be wanting to spend on an apartment would be 1300/month. I have VA benefits as well and am contemplating purchasing a house there eventually. I know I'd lose my right to vote in the US but that doesn't really matter too much to me. I'm kind of sick of living in America proper tbh. I'm just rambling now really, just spitballing, but what do you guys think? Any tips?
