The livingcost in the canary islands increased extremely in between a half year we have in some places double so high prices. Everybody wants make money, locals can not find any effortdable flats anymore. Even digital Nomades leaving the islands cause it got so expensive. For example I paid within the Figaro in January 2022 50 Eur - for the same I paid in July 92 Eur.
Gasolina is still a bit cheaper than mainland. Coffee prices increased from 1€ to 1,60€

Hi,

My wife, daughter and I are looking to move to the Canary Islands sometime mid-2021 but have a few questions. I am 65 and wondering what employment opportunities (part-time) might be available? Also, our 18 year old daughter has autism and wondering what opportunities might be for her? Last, what is the health care system like?

I look forward to your reply.

Tony
