What do I need to know about living in San Juan del Sur?

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

"Before retiring in San Juan del Sur, expats should be aware that the cost of living is relatively low, but the infrastructure is not as developed as in other countries. It is important to research the local healthcare system and ensure that adequate medical care is available. Additionally, expats should be aware that the local language is Spanish, so it is helpful to learn some basic Spanish before moving to the area. It is also important to research the local laws and regulations to ensure that all necessary paperwork is in order. Finally, expats should be aware that the climate in San Juan del Sur is tropical, so it is important to be prepared for hot and humid weather," wrote a member in San Juan del Sur.
