What do I need to know about living in San Rafael?

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

"Learn Spanish before you come. Lack of Spanish won't stop you from achieving anything, but you'll miss out on some fantastic social situations. Other than that, be ready to eat some fantastic steaks and drink some incredible wine," commented one expat who made the move to San Rafael.

"Expats considering retiring in San Rafael should be aware that the city is located in a semi-arid region of the country, and the climate is generally hot and dry. It is important to research the cost of living in San Rafael, as it is higher than in other parts of Argentina. Additionally, expats should be aware that the city is relatively small and may not have all the amenities of larger cities. It is also important to research the healthcare system in San Rafael, as it may not be as comprehensive as in other parts of the country. Finally, expats should be aware that the local language is Spanish, so it is important to learn the language before moving to San Rafael," remarked one expat living in San Rafael, Argentina.
