An Expat Talks about Moving to Maracaibo, Venezuela

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Maracaibo

Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.

I wish I brought my car, because cars are very expensive here. I wish I had left home all my winter clothes. Everything is HOT here.

What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

Always prefer your common sense over the realtors opinion. Try to look at houses with a local to get their opinion. ALWAYS choose houses with Air Conditioning, it tends to get very hot. (115 F)

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

We chose a house. Although most expats choose to live in apartment buildings, because of security.

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

My family and I chose a HUGE house in the La Virginia neighborhood. The rent is expensive, but we spent nearly three months living in a hotel before finding anything we liked.

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

The housing average I don't know. But I know I'm paying a lot more in house and a lot less in the electrical bill.
