San Juan Del Sur Move Aug 2022

New Topic Newest First

We are just starting the planning phase of a move to the San Juan del Sur area. What do we need to know? What do you wish you knew before/during moving to Nicaragua? Our kids will be 12 and 10 when we move there. We are looking into the San Juan del Sur Day School. Is this a good option? Or is there something different to check out? Should we rent first, then buy after we get there? Or just go straight to buying a house? What is the best way to get a vehicle when we first get there? How easy is it to obtain residency? Any tips are appreciated.

I agree with the other people who have responded. Come down and spend a significant chunk of time. That's really the only way you will discover what you are in for and what you will need to get ready for. You can read forums all day long but a trip is really worth it for you. 2 weeks sounds good a month would be better. Take a look at real estate, get to know the locals and the culture, and maybe even in the same trip visit some other possibilities such as columbia, Costa rica.

Not a problem at all!
We have actually just submitted our applications to the San Juan del Sur Day School. We will do assessments with the school when we are there in June. We will also do some house hunting and see which area of town we want to be in.
