Im from the east coast. Im very laid back and I cant stand living on the mainland. I want to live somewhere beautiful and quiet. I dont expect much because I dont want much. Im researching and considering moving to hawaii maybe in the next few years. I was hoping I could get some ideas on the different areas, least expensive, laid back, beautiful, young people etc. Any info would be much appreciated.

If your primary motivator to move to Hawaii is because you consider the Mainland not to be "laid back," you need to reconsider. There are many, many places on the Mainland that you might consider far more laid back than Hawaii.

Also, you ask very broad questions, " . . . ideas on the different areas, least expensive, laid back, beautiful, young people etc." The cheapest areas are wherever you find the least expensive rent on craigslist. The laid back people can usually be found surfing or at the bars. The beautiful girls all live with me, though oddly I'm fairly type A.

maybe u should just try the 'west coast' in general. it's mostly all laid-back, particularly comparatively.

since you are also looking for 'least expensive' and 'young beautiful people'...that's a hard mix. Least expensive would be Hilo, but young beautiful wouldn't be Hilo. Honolulu that might have 'young beautiful' is incredibly expensive. I usually think 'Miami' or 'L.A.' when I think young beautiful though. I think 'Texas' might have young beautiful and cheap.

Have you thought of Thailand before?

Just a thought.

If you have not, maybe read about Costa Rica, Pacific coast. But times are changing and the economy varies by specific location and crime too. Overall, cheap housing and food, but hotter/humid. San Jose Central Valley is more metro, cooler temperatures, and resources, but with that goes somewhat higher costs. Roads are not great and a 4x4 needed for out of city/valley travel. Again, read their forums for current info. Every location anywhere has a mix of items to weigh, depending on what you can deal with, and accept, per individual expectations. Belize and Panama, are worth reading about, but the same type "mix" of Panama City versus higher and cooler at David elevations, and less resources of a city.
