What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

2 story home, cement- and is common for expats and locals alike-

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

I choose the San Ignacio area as it has the best local downtown, expats and locals mix well together, the folks are so friendly and the Expats are like my other family ! I found my home, thru Rainforest Realty www.rainforestrealty.com

Are your housing costs higher or lower than they were in your home country? What is the average cost of housing there?

MUCH LOWER! Property taxes are around 30 dollars a year!!! Car insurance is less than 150 a year! WOW!!

I will be making a trip there at the end of May, 2014 with the goal of looking around to see if I could live there. Drs gave me the Malaria and Typhoid drugs to take (which I haven't yet) Based on your experience, are these necessary? Should I be vaccined for anything?
