What do I need to know before moving to Juayua?
When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Juayua, they said:
"Juayua is a small town known for its beautiful landscapes, coffee plantations, and the famous "Ruta de las Flores" or "Route of the Flowers". Before moving to Juayua, expats should know that Spanish is the official language, so learning the language or having a basic understanding would be beneficial. The cost of living in Juayua is relatively low compared to many Western countries, but expats should be aware that salaries are also generally lower. The town is known for its weekend food festival, where vendors sell traditional Salvadoran dishes, so expats should be prepared to enjoy a rich and diverse culinary culture. Expats should also be aware that while Juayua is generally safe, El Salvador does have a high crime rate, so it's important to take standard safety precautions. Healthcare facilities in smaller towns like Juayua may not be as advanced as in larger cities, so expats with specific medical needs may need to travel for certain treatments. Public transportation is available, but it may not be as reliable or comfortable as expats from Western countries may be used to. Expats should also be prepared for a slower pace of life in Juayua, as the culture values relaxation and family time. The climate in Juayua is tropical and mild, but it can get quite rainy during the wet season, which runs from May to October. Finally, expats should know that Juayua is a close-knit community, so it may take some time to be accepted as a local, but the people are generally friendly and welcoming," said one expat in Juayua.
