It would be really beneficial to have figures for the cost of living to be realistic. I am looking to understand and have a very close dollar figure for the cost. if moving to Trinidad and residing in Port of Spain is it feasible when renting a 2 bdrm apartment, taking public transit, and working in a mid Management sales position. Being a citizen of TNT, currently residing in Alberta Canada and wanting to relocate to Trinidad.
