Living on the east coast of Florida has instilled in me the desire to maintain a nice tropical village: fruit trees galore, starchy roots, daily coconuts, prolific (yet hard earned) cash crops, and spear fishing along the coast or tree housing in some Caribbean / South American mountains.

Does anyone have contacts in these regions or would be interested in looking into this? IF climate change has any negative effects the tropics will be the place to develop heat resistant land races.

I would be willing to travel between regions bringing what supplies I can from America before relocating permanently.

Regarding money, I feel it is ideal due to the prolific and valuable crops that grow in the tropics, from coffee to cacao and tobacco to rare Asian and Japanese fruits. I am an absolute organic coffee addict / self proclaimed aficionado and thoroughly enjoy cigars yet only one or two in the entire industry is certified organic. Between organic coffee, cacao and tobacco, that’s a damn good trinity of tropical cash crops.

It’s tough to find land around here unfortunately anymore. The entirety of the coast is pretty juicy developed and a haven for the rich.
