Cost of Living

Fort Buchanan, PR

Of course the caribean! Well, Cost of living is VERY EXPENSIVE housing in the economy is to be desired. If you have a medical appt in the economy and your appt is at 9:00am be there by 4:00am to put your name on a list. Commissary, well its expensive and if your desiring an item don't hesitate buy it because people will buy in bulk for their families out in town. Don't be surprised if you see someone buying 10 cans of coffee. There are more civilians in the commissary than sponsors or dependents shopping. The comissary employees are rude, same as the PX. Crime rate is VERY high. Drugs are everywhere. Medicine, well no comparison to the U.S. If you eat out in town they will automatically add the tip to your bill even if the service was bad. Shopper beware. I have a few months to go and I will be out of this 2 1/2 world country. Sad to say that PR is part of the USA and is in such poor shape. Tourist do not see the bad part of PR, once you live here you become VERY depressed. Select another base to be stationed at or you'll be sorry.....
