What do I need to know about living in La Libertad?

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

"Expats considering retiring in La Libertad should be aware that the cost of living is relatively low, but the infrastructure is not as developed as in other parts of the country. 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 important to learn the language or hire a translator. It is also important to research the local culture and customs to ensure a smooth transition into the community. Finally, expats should be aware that the crime rate in El Salvador is high, so it is important to take necessary precautions to stay safe," commented one expat who made the move to La Libertad.
