What do I need to know before moving to Cadiz?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Cadiz, they said:

"Cadiz, is a beautiful coastal city with a rich history and vibrant culture, but there are a few things expats should know before moving there. Firstly, the official language is Spanish, so it would be beneficial to learn the language or at least some basic phrases. English is not widely spoken, especially among the older population. The cost of living in Cadiz is relatively low compared to other Spanish cities, but it's important to budget carefully as salaries are also generally lower. The city has a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters, so pack your wardrobe accordingly. Public transportation in Cadiz is reliable and affordable, with a good network of buses and trains. However, the city is also very walkable, with many of the main attractions within walking distance of each other. The healthcare system in Spain is excellent, and Cadiz is no exception. However, it's important to ensure you have the correct health insurance coverage. The Spanish lifestyle is laid-back, with a focus on family, food, and festivities. Be prepared for late dinners, long lunches, and numerous local festivals. Cadiz is a safe city, but like any other place, it's important to be aware of your surroundings and take basic precautions to protect your personal belongings. The job market in Cadiz can be competitive, especially for expats. It's recommended to secure a job before moving, or have a solid plan for finding employment. Finally, Cadiz is a city with a deep history and strong local culture. Take the time to learn about its traditions, festivals, and way of life to fully appreciate living there," said one expat who made the move to Cadiz.
