The communities of expats from all over the world living in the Canary Islands speak for themselves; this is the kind of place people can lay back and relax. A truly multi-cultural community, everything needed for a comfortable life in the sun can be found here.
Fuelling the Canary economy, are the thriving tourism and agriculture sectors but the property industry is growing steadily thanks to the growing number of foreign investors making a move on the islands. While the number of English speakers are well on the rise, learning Spanish will see you integrating better with the already welcoming locals and give you a significant edge in terms of opportunities for business and work.
Low cost of living is much welcomed by many who decide to move there, as is the wondrous natural expanse perfect for all kinds of sports including hiking. Throughout the year, the Canary Islands also host a series of lively local fiestas. An intrinsic part of the local way of life is the deep bond the islanders have with the sea that surrounds them.
