What places have a similar climate to Hawaii but cheaper?

Warning: don’t answer if you don’t know what you’re talking about because tropical == Hawaii. Hawaii has a trade wind that makes it much cooler in the summer.

    Anywhere in tropical Mexico, Central America, Colombia, Ecuador, etc. that's at sufficiently high altitude (1500 meters/5000 ft) which a lot of the cities there are. It's just the coasts that are sweltering.

    If you want somewhere that's on the beach, tropical, but not real hot, you need to be surrounded by water. IDK how expensive the Canary Islands are.

      Fiji cheaper than Hawaii though? Or Okinawa for that matter? Does this include airfare?

      I think Brazil might also be good. Southern Brazil isn't too hot.

    Unironically Guam is your place. It's called "the poor man's Hawaii" for a reason.

      Never heard it called that, but it’s definitely true that the climate is similar. Plane tickets might be expensive, though—it’s a long way from anywhere except other Pacific islands.

      I was also going to suggest any of the former Trust Territories — Micronesia, Marshall Islands, Northern Marianas, Palau, etc. Most of these also have favorable residency terms for Americans, as well (the NMI is still a US territory, like Guam, so you could just move there with no paperwork, and presumably without even a passport), assuming OP is American and wishes to stay long-term.

      Not sure how cheap they really are in practice, though—small islands that import everything are never all that cheap. But I would be surprised if they weren’t all more affordable than HI.

        >Marianas
        Look up the website called "Saipan Sucks." You might have to use internet archive though.
        The States of Micronesia looks cool af. The Marshall Islands looks like shit though.

          Micronesia is great for diving. Some states are better than others overall; people make fun of Chuuk, which is supposedly the drunkest and crudest of the four. I’ve never been to the Marshall Islands personally, but a weird friend of mine was a missionary there and showed me pictures—seems as though the nature, particularly the barely-inhabited or uninhabited atolls, is often gorgeous and the built environment uniformly dismal.

          As for Saipan being a corrupt mess, well, it doesn’t surprise me. Seems to be a near-universal side effect of life as a US Commonwealth/colony. Puerto Rico is an administrative and infrastructural cesspool, too.
